Van was 25 when he recorded this and only 23 when he recorded Astral Weeks...Genius!

dictionary.com says:
Word Origin and History for jelly roll
noun
also jelly-roll, "cylindrical cake containing jelly or jam," 1873, from jelly + roll (n.).
As slang for "vagina, sexual intercourse" it dates from 1914 ("St. Louis Blues").

Guessing Van was referring to the latter, but who knows, maybe he's just into baked goods.

Similarly, there's reference in Joni MItchell's "Cold Blue Steel and Sweet Fire", wherein you'll find "someone's hi-fi drumming jellyroll". Among other things.

I must have listened to this song 10,000 times in my life.  And I still scramble to turn up the volume every damn time!

Very few artists make you "feel" the music. Van the man does it for me. YMMV

there was a rad jazz pianist named ferdinand 'jellyroll' lamothe (morton)...in the wayback days. morrison refers to jelly roll in a few of his other songs..more of a "sexual reference"..but here since jelly roll is capitolized on the lyric sheet it probably refers to musician and thus  his effect on morrison .......I'm 100% certain that I may or may not be correct

Love his talent.He was a turd when I overheard him speaking to others the few times that I was in earshot. Shrugs. I guess it's the old 'Love the art, hate the artist' concept.

  The one live concert I saw him play he was completely disconnected from the audience and delivered an emotionless performance.  At one point he asked the audience for a song request, at which point there was an unintelligible response from several in the audience.  Almost immediately he heard (or maybe pretended to hear) the title of the song he wanted to sing next and launched into it without delay as if he had a bus to catch after the show and didn't want to any waste time.

Van Morrison's brilliant 1970 LP Moondance has been expanded to include a bevy of rarities, including alternate versions of songs from the album and outtakes from the original sessions that offer a previously unheard perspective on the creation of one of the most revered recordings in popular music. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/van-morrison-moondance-reissue-full-of-rarities-album-premiere-20131017?print=true
