Indeed a classic from Van Morrison's Astral Weeks album, "Madame George" was first debuted here during his Bang Records/"Brown Eyed Girl" period. Opening with the sounds of a rowdy group of partygoers, this narrative is commonly thought to be about a transvestite, yet that is only part of the story. According to Morrison himself, the song is about a combination of different people that he knew from the period, and he combined them all into the main Madame George character. The main point to the song is about leaving the past behind, and that is exactly what Morrison did, musically and spiritually, during this time. Available on the excellent Bang Masters collection on Sony Legacy.
