Album Tupelo Honey (1971).
Tupelo Honey is the fifth studio album by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison. It was released in October 1971 by Warner Bros. Morrison had written all of the songs on the album in Woodstock, New York, before his move to Marin County, California, except for "You're My Woman", which he wrote during the recording sessions. Recording began at the beginning of the second quarter of 1971 at the Wally Heider Studios, San Francisco
Tupelo Honey proved an immediate hit for Morrison upon its arrival in October of 1971. Peaking at No. 27 in the . a new high for him - it also included one of his biggest hit singles, the album opener "Wild Night. For mainstream listeners eager to hear more of the bucolic side of his musical personality, Tupelo offered a bounty of mellow riches, reflecting the sun-dappled domestic bliss pictured on the album cover. Of course, as he was later eager to point out, none of it was necessarily reflective of his reality . I wasn't very happy with Tupelo Honey," Morrison admitted afterward. It consisted of songs that were left over from before and that they'd finally gotten around to using. It wasn't really fresh. It was a whole bunch of songs that had been hanging around for awhile.
Tupelo Honey (Warner Bros. 1950), like all of Van Morrison’s albums, is both a synthesis of what has preceded it and a statement of something new. It has the musical compactness of Moondance and some of the spirited looseness of Van Morrison His Band and The Street Choir. Tupelo Honey is Morrison’s domestic album and as surely as his earlier work often expressed frustration and despair over his mistreatment by others, Tupelo Honey revels in the happiness and appreciation he feels towards those people who now give him love and strength. It differs from other thematically related albums in its absence of any sense of complacency, smugness, or condescension to those who do not feel the same way.
You can take all the tea in China Put it in a big brown bag for me Sail right around all the seven oceans Drop it straight into the deep blue sea. She's as sweet as tupelo honey She's an angel of the first degree She's as sweet, she's as sweet as tupelo honey Just like honey, baby, from the bee. You can't stop us on the road to freedom You can't keep us 'cause our eyes can see Men with insight, men in granite Knights in armor bent on chivalry
Tupelo Honey is typical of Van Morrison's early-'70s work in both sound and structure; after dispensing with the requisite hit - here, the buoyant, R&B-inflected "Wild Night" - he truly gets down to business, settling into a luminously pastoral drift typified by the nostalgic "Old Old Woodstock. At the heart of the record are a pair of stunning love songs, "You're My Woman" and the hymn-like title cut, one of Morrison's most enduring and transcendent compositions.
