VAN MORRISON ‘The Healing Game’- 3CD Dlx. Ed.


Only 1 left in stock


Originally released in 1997, The Healing Game marked an important transition for Van Morrison. After a period of crafting romantic ballads that found mainstream success, Van felt once more compelled to revisit the jazz and rhythm and blues-inspired style that influenced his earliest work. To achieve this, he assembled a killer new band that included saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis, Georgie Fame and bassist Alec Dankworth.

Now, Morrison has released a deluxe edition of The Healing Game, generously expanded with outtakes, rare tracks and live recordings. In addition to the original album, The Healing Game (Deluxe Edition) features more than 30 extras in total. All recorded between 1995 and 1997, and many of them previously unissued, these include alternate versions of songs that appeared on the final album.

Disc 1 is a previously remastered version of the original album; Disc 2 is a collection of (mostly unreleased) alternate versions of the same LP. The third is a complete live concert recording from his legendary performance at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1997.
A wonderful revisit and re-examination of one of the most respected and loved artists of our time!
