Song of the Day – “New Music” Wednesday – “Some Peace of Mind” – Van Morrison

Van Morrison has released a new Duets CD that reworks some of his lesser-known tracks with some of his favorite performers. In this case, it’s Bobby Womack – and that points out the problems with some of these “duets” albums. Sometimes you get a singing partner who’s too young and who doesn’t relate to this song. Sometimes you get a singing partner past their prime, who can’t quite handle the song anymore. Unfortunately, I think Bobby Womack wanders a little.

The original was on 1991’s Hymns to the Silence.
