VAN REISSUES: IT'S TOO LATE TO STOP NOW

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.

Legacy’s digital rollout begins tomorrow with the two-CD, 37-track The Essential Van Morrison, so between the two catalog companies, Van fans will soon be able to snag anything from the great soulman’s half-century-spanning body of work. Ah, to be born again...
