His Band and the Street Choir (also referred to as Street Choir) is the fourth studio album by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison. It was released on 15 November 1970 by Warner Bros. Originally titled Virgo's Fool, Street Choir was renamed by Warner Bros. without Morrison's consent. Recording began in early 1970 with a demo session in a small church in Woodstock, New York
Released in 1970, Van Morrison's Moondance was a hit commercially and critically. Encouraged by his manager, Morrison and a sextet - including three players from the Moondance sessions - hit the studio and delivered His Band & the Street Choir in time for that year's holiday season. Morrison responded to the pressure by relaxing into it. The feel here is loose, often celebratory. He digs deep into his long-held fascination with the New Orleans R&B tradition for inspiration. Domino" is his highest charting single
One of Van Morrison's seminal albums "His Band & Street Choir" doesn't get the praiseof "Astral Weeks" or "Moondance" but it is every bit as great as those two albums focusing much more on Morrison's R&B roots than those two other albums even if it isn't as groundbreaking in the way the other two albums were when released
This release is the 52nd of the collection "Blues in vinile", published by De Agostini. It contains an 8-page booklet. Matrix, Runout (Side A): MPO LPBI - BANDCHOIR A 158888E 1/A1. Matrix, Runout (Side B): 158888E2/A LPBI - BANDCHOIR B MPO SST.
Album of the Day. Van Morrison. Wednesday, June 12, 2019. On this day in 2003, Van Morrison was inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame, an honor the singer-songwriter's Warner Bros. years alone would justify. Following MOONDANCE's breakthrough success, HIS BAND AND THE STREET CHOIR arrived in November 1970. While its predecessors contemplated the cosmos and love's rich conundrums, the collection resonates with a purposefully loose ebullience on songs like the Top Ten hit Domino, Blue Money and Call Me Up In Dreamland.
Compared to Morrison's preceeding hit album Moondance, His Band And Street Choir evokes a more relaxed sound. After the brilliant one-two punch of Astral Weeks and Moondance, His Band and the Street Choir brings Van Morrison back down to earth, both literally and figuratively. While neither as innovative nor as edgy as its predecessors, His Band and the Street Choir also lacks their overt mysticism; at heart, the album is simply Morrison's valentine to the R&B that inspired him, resulting in the muscular and joyous tribute "Domino" as well as the bouncy "Blue Money" and "Call Me Up in Dreamland"
