#20] Van Morrison Pay The Devil
songwriting icon returns with a country-tinged collection on Pay the Devil. Slide
guitar, fiddle, and boogie piano support the singer’s trademark bluesy vocals.
Although Morrison is considered one of the great songwriters of our time, he chooses
to perform ten covers in the 15-track set including Hank Williams’ “Your Cheatin’
Heart” and Billy Wallace’s “Back Street Affair.”
