Van Morrison Revisits 1973 Tour With Its Too Late to Stop Now... Set news

Van Morrison‘s 1973 tour that spawned the singer’s classic live album It’s Too Late to Stop Now… will be the focus of an 3CD/1DVD archival release. Titled It’s Too Late to Stop Now… Volumes II, III, IV & DVD, the collection boasts three previously unreleased concerts from Morrison’s trek – recorded at Los Angeles’ the Troubadour, the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium and London’s Rainbow – along with a July 24th London gig that was filmed for a BBC special but never commercially released.

The collection is due out June 10th, the same day a remastered reissue of the original It’s Too Late to Stop Now… arrives. The three-month tour, which launched just months before Morrison released his 1973 LP Hard Nose the Highway, featured the singer backed by the 11-piece Caledonia Soul Orchestra, Morrison’s tight knit backing band.

Rolling Stone exclusively presents the opening track from the new collection, a feverish, spirited take on Moondance‘s “Come Running” from Morrison’s May 1973 Troubadour gig.

It’s Too Late to Stop Now… Volumes II, III, IV & DVD was remixed from the original multi-track tapes by engineer Guy Massey. Although the original It’s Too Late to Stop Now… cherry-picked recordings from throughout the 1973 tour, none of the songs featured on It’s Too Late to Stop Now… Volumes II, III, IV & DVD appeared on the classic live LP.

The reissue and 3CD/DVD set are part of a larger effort to bring Morrison’s catalog to the digital realm.
