We gave it a B+

At 55, Van Morrison’s coasting, but the great singer can make enjoyable music without breaking a sweat. Case in point: You Win Again, a CD of duets with Jerry Lee Lewis’ kid sister Linda Gail Lewis on vocals and 88’s. The pair dig deep into classic country (”Jambalaya,” ”Crazy Arms”), but the best cuts are two chestnuts — Bo Diddley’s ”Cadillac” and John Lee Hooker’s ”Boogie Chillen” — with Lewis wailing on piano like the Killer himself. B+
