Van Morrison Singles An artist desperately in need of a box set is Van Morrison. The just released Still on Top is a single disc compilation limited to 21 singles Morrison has released over the last 40 years. It’s a decent enough overview seeing that “Gloria,” “Brown Eyed Girl” and “Moondance” suffer nothing from the fact that they happened to be singles, but there’s enough classic Van Morrison available to fill three, maybe even four, discs. -- Darryl Smyers
