We told you on Tuesday that Legacy had made a deal with Van Morrison’s Exile Productions for 33 of his albums. But Warner Bros. retained the rights to his first three LPs for the label: 1968’s Astral Weeks, 1969’s Moondance and 1970’s His Band and the Street Choir, and Rhino will release expanded, remastered reissues of the first and third of these landmark records on 10/30; Moondance got the same treatment in 2013.
