Van Morrison's Contractual Obligation Album.

My buddy Richie made fun of me for being a VM-head in college. He couldn't understand how I could listen to Van Morrison's repetitiverepetitiverepetitiverepetitive lyrics. But, Richie, if you're reading this, I think even you'll like this one.

In order to fulfill his obligation to his early solo label Bang Records,Van Morrison sat down in 1967 or so and cranked out 31 songs on the spot, on topics ranging from ringworm to wanting a danish, to hating his record label and a guy named George. Make sure you get past the first few tunes - it takes him a few to get cooking.
