''Astral Weeks'' is the second solo album by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison, released in November 1968 on Warner Bros. Records.

This was Morrison's first album after Warner Bros. had been able to free him from his contract with Bang Records. The recording sessions were set up by the production/management team of Lewis Merenstein and Bob Schwaid and took place during three sessions in September and October 1968.

Employing a mixture of folk, blues, jazz, and classical music, ''Astral Weeks'' received critical acclaim immediately upon its first release and subsequently has been placed on numerous widely-circulated lists of best albums of all time. The 1995 MOJO list of ''100 Best Albums'', ranked it as #2, and it received the #19 ranking on ''Rolling Stones ''The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time'' in 2003. It became and remains a cult favourite, despite the fact that it failed to achieve significant mainstream sales success for decades. (After 33 years, it finally achieved gold in 2001). - Wikipedia
