VAN MORRISON – ‘THE HEALING GAME (DELUXE EDITION)’

February 5, 2019

We’re proud to announce the latest addition to our monumental Van Morrison catalogue project – ‘The Healing Game (Deluxe Edition)’, a luxurious 3CD set centred around Morrison’s seminal mid-period album of the same name.

Originally released in 1997, ‘The Healing Game’ was the twenty sixth studio album from the famously prolific Morrison, going top ten in the UK album charts.

Revisiting his early jazz and rhythm ‘n’ blues influences, Morrison assembled a new band featuring such heavy hitters as saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis (formerly of James Brown’s band), British jazz/blues legend Georgie Fame and bassist Alec Dankworth.

CD1 features the original album (plus five bonus tracks previously released on singles or compilation), Disc 2 – ‘Seasons & Collaborations’ – includes early versions of key tracks as well as a whole host of previously unreleased recordings including tracks recorded with Carl Perkins and John Lee Hooker.

Disc 3 – ‘Live At Montreal 17 July 1997’ demonstrates Morrison at the height of his live powers, here presented in pristine state-of-the-art audio for the very first time.

‘The Healing Game (Deluxe Edition)’ will available on March 22 on 3CD plus digital formats in addition to a 1LP 12″ vinyl edition of the (long out-of-print) original album (minus the bonus tracks).
