This is an original Warner Brothers Records LARGE promotional poster for Van the man's treasured 1974 album Veedon Fleece. Stylistically it has been compared to the Astral Weeks record with the same stream of consciousness lyrics, but musically it is more Celtic acoustic and heavily influenced by Morrison's northern Irish roots.
Van Morrison's illustrious career started with the 1960s garage rock band Them. From there he created one of the most prolific and long running solo careers of any of the 1960s performers. Morrison is known for his unique blend of blue-eyed soul jazz and R&B and has created some of the music world finest hits along the way.
This original promotional poster has factory folds from when it was originally sent out to retailers. The fact it has survived in this good condition is remarkable!
