Too Long in Exile is the twenty-second studio album by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison. The album was produced by Morrison and draws on urban blues and soul jazz sounds, including collaborations with John Lee Hooker and Georgie Fame. Released in 1993 by Polydor Records, Too Long in Exile received positive reviews from most critics and reached number four on the UK Albums Chart.

“The title track is a mundane cross between contemporary blues and soft rock with a chorus repeated ad nauseam. Next up is the gently rocking blues of “Big Time Operator” featuring Georgie Fame on organ. Morrison bites into a delicious cover of Ray Charles’ “Lonely Avenue.” John Lee Hooker appears on two striking duets, “Gloria” and “Wasted Years.” Sonny Boy Williamson’s “Good Morning Little School Girl” is revisited and sped up a bit with nice harmonica solo by Morrison. Throughout, Morrison’s raw vocal cords are sufficiently dramatic to bring these rhythmic stories to life. This is an earthy departure from his two previous pop efforts.” (Bil Carpenter, AMG)
