Van Morrison Concert Weekend: Tupelo Honey (Live with Pee Wee Ellis)

The Hunt For New Music: A terrific version of a signature Van Morrison, song: “Tupelo Honey”  featuring Pee Wee Ellis, recorded live from Montreaux in 1980
The lyrics set the tone: “She’s as sweet as Tupelo Honey, an angel of the first degree….” The entire song brings you back to that honey-sweet combination of blues and jazz that Morrison works so deftly. You will be stunned at the virtuoso solo by Pee Wee Ellis on Sax about 3/4 through the song and Morrison’s unique “come-back” phrasing of the song’s lyrics.
