Van Morrison to Release Deluxe Reissue of <i>Moondance</i>

Van Morrison’s classic Moondance was released 43 years ago, but the timeless release will have a new life this year as Warner Bros. recently announced a massive deluxe reissue.

On Sept. 30, three different versions of Moondance will be made available to the public, including a remastered version of the album, 50 unreleased tracks and multiple takes and mixes of various songs from the album. The deluxe edition boasts four CDs and a Blu-Ray audio disc, featuring a remastered album along with three discs of alternate takes, unreleased songs and remixes.

Fans who don’t have $70 for a deluxe edition can still enjoy their share of unreleased goodies with the extended edition of the reissue, featuring highlights from the deluxe outtakes for $25.

Some of the most notable tracks featured on this reissue include early takes of “I’ve Been Working” (from Morrison’s His Band And The Street Choir) and “I Shall Sing,” a track originally penned by Morrison but eventually became a hit for Art Garfunkel.

Check out the full tracklist for the deluxe and extended edition below.
