“Tupelo Honey” by Van Morrison - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1971Album Chart of the Decade: 1970s

TJR says

A Top 30 album in the States, but a bit of a flop in Britain and Europe where it failed to chart; deemed too American perhaps? “Tupelo Honey” - named after the honey trees found in the southeastern states - served up a soulful brand of country, with an upbeat outlook, many of the songs serving as love poems to his wife at the time, Janet Rigsbee. The rural vibe of the front-cover image reflects this domestic bliss. Good in places, but not vital.
