The track is from the new edition of Astral Weeks


On October 30, two of Van Morrison‘s greatest albums – Astral Weeks and His Band And Street Choir – are to be released as expanded editions.

Among the many jewels available on both albums are a number of previously unreleased versions.

Thanks to our friends at Rhino, we’re delighted to bring you a proper exclusive peek at Astral Weeks’ coda, “Slim Slow Slider“.

This version runs for 4’55: a minute and a half longer than the version that originally appeared on Astral Weeks.

These single-disc expanded and remastered versions will be released on CD and digital formats. They can be pre-ordered by clicking here.

They follow the Moondance deluxe edition that Rhino released in 2013.
