VINYL TUESDAY: THREE VAN MORRISON REISSUES PLUS $5 IN FREE USED VINYL!

It’s Vinyl Tuesday! Record Exchange customers receive up to $5 in used vinyl* with every $25 in new vinyl purchased and have access to early and exclusive releases. This week’s releases:

common oneVan Morrison – Common One LP

Originally released in 1980, Common One is the twelfth studio album by Van Morrison. The title comes from the 3/4 section of the song “Summertime in England,” where Morrison sings the lyrics, “Oh, my common one with the coat so old and the light in her head.”

beautiful visionVan Morrison – Beautiful Vision LP

Originally released in February 1982, Beautiful Vision is the thirteenth studio album by Van Morrison. It continued his departure from R&B, favoring Celtic folk and jazz influences instead.

inarticulateVan Morrison – Inarticulate Speech of the Heart LP

Originally released in 1983, Inarticulate Speech of the Heart is the fourteenth studio album by Van Morrison. Morrison said he arrived at the title from a Shavian saying: “that idea of communicating with as little articulation as possible, at the same time being emotionally articulate.”
