Van Morrison / It’s Too Late To Stop Now new box set with vols II, III, IV & DVD


Sony/Legacy Recordings will release a four-disc box set next month of previously unreleased Van Morrison live concert recordings from his legendary 1973 tour with the Caledonia Soul Orchestra.

It’s Too Late To Stop Now…Volumes II, III, IV & DVD brings together performances originally recorded at three venues: The Troubadour in Los Angeles, the Santa Monica Civic Center, and The Rainbow Theatre in London. The DVD in the set is professionally filmed live footage from the Rainbow Theatre, originally aired on the BBC in the UK and now available for the first time, commercially.

The audio on this new set has been newly remixed from the original multi-track recordings by Guy Massey and Sony promise that these new mixes “recreate the sonic atmosphere of each venue, from the standing-room-only intimacy of The Troubadour to the expansive excitement filling the 3,000-seat Rainbow Theatre”.

The original 1974 album that has inspired this new collection, ..It’s Too Late To Stop Now…, has also been newly remastered and will be reissued on 2LP and two-CD.

Both the box set and the original album reissues will be released on 10 June 2016. Van Morrison fans in Europe should note that JPC in Germany have an incredibly good pre-order price for the box set.
