The album found Van Morrison abandoning the abstract folk jazz compositions of Astral Weeks in favour of more formally composed songs, which he wrote and produced entirely himself. Its lively rhythm and blues/rock music was the style he would become most known for in his career. The music incorporated soul, jazz, pop, and Irish folk sounds into songs about finding spiritual renewal and redemption in worldly matters such as nature, music, romantic love, and self-affirmation.

Moondance was an immediate critical and commercial success. It helped establish Morrison as a major artist in popular music, while several of its songs became staples on FM radio in the early 1970s.

  5. Van was definitely the man when I fucked him in the mid seventies. He had a Giant Coc . Van also had lots of stamina. He could fuck for a long time , hard and fast before he would blow his load . Giving him head was difficult because of his size. When he fucked me , it felt like it was coming out of my stomach . God it was big . Van really worked me over good , always backstage of course.
