Van Morrison at the height of his solo powers – working here in an extended live set that opens up with all the genius for vocal expression and inflection he developed during his initial solo years at Warner Brothers! The setting is perfect to show the growing confidence Morrison has in his talents – an unbridled sense of soul that comes on even more strongly on some of these versions than on earlier takes of the tunes in the studio – especially as they mix with a few great covers here that further illustrate the wide range of inspirations that Van brings into his music. Backing is by a tight, soulful combo – and tracks include "Domino
", "Wild Children", "I Believe To My Soul", "I Just Want To Make Love To You", "These Dreams Of You", "Into The Mystic", "Warm Love", "Saint Dominic's Preview", "Bring It On Home To Me", "Listen To The Lion", "Gloria", "Cyprus Avenue", "Caravan", and "Take Your Hand Out Of My Pocket". Special 3CD version is stunning – and presents the full 3 concerts that went into the core album – with over 3 hours of unreleased music! Concerts were recorded at the Troubadour in LA, Santa Monica Civic, and Rainbow in London – and additional titles include "Sweet Thing", "Bein Green", "Buona Sera", "Wild Night", "Hey Good Lookin", "Snow In San Anselmo", "Come Running", "Hard Nose To The Highway", "Since I Fell For YOu", "There There Child", "No Way", "Moonshine Whiskey", and lots more! 45 tracks in all – and comes with a DVD featuring 9 tracks, and 50 minutes of footage from the Rainbow show in London!
