Tonight's video features an early live performance of Van Morrison's "Moondance," performed in Ireland, according to Youtube. The Amazon offering is a 1990 issue.
Rolling Stone reported Thursday that a new release of Van Morrison hits will revisit some of his best-loved albums with forthcoming five-disc deluxe edition of his 1969 classic Moondance.
Morrison issued a message condemning this release today on his website:
"Yesterday Warner Brothers stated that "Van Morrison was reissuing Moondance". It' is important that people realise that this is factually incorrect. I did not endorse this, it is unauthorised and it has happened behind my back
My management company at that time gave this music away 42 years ago and now I feel as though it"s being stolen from me again."
Moondance was originally recorded during the fall of 1969, and quickly became the breakthrough album for Morrison.
