Magic Time: Van the Man's New Lucky 13
Gene Sculatti, ICE, May 2005
THE ARTIST who famously proclaimed It's Too Late to Stop Now means what he says. In 1974, when Van Morrison used the phrase for the title of his first live album, he'd barely been in the game 10 years. More than 30 years — and almost as many albums — later, he shows no signs of slowing down, let alone stopping. On May 17, Morrison checks in with a new album, a new label and what many close to the project are calling a return to form.
