Given his early roots in Irish show bands steeped in American R&B, Van Morrison's power as a live performer is as riveting in his "on" nights as it can be frustrating when he's not in the mood. But his sheer power as a singer, and his long tradition of crack bands, has translated to an awful lot of good nights--enough to spawn three compelling live albums, of which this is the first and best. Recorded during his San Franciscan residency of the early 1970s, with his ambitious Caledonia Soul Orchestra, this double album documents Morrison at an early vocal peak and benefits from a set list culled from his early solo masterpieces, including Moondance and Astral Weeks. As such, It's Too Late to Stop Now clicks as both anthology and coherent concert document--a classic live album. --Sam Sutherland --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This CD is timeless and of amazing quality. Van Morrison seems to make personal contact with the audience by virtue of the shear quality if his work. Read morePublished on Aug. 7 2002 by cosmo
There's a reason most of the reviews are 5 stars. It's that Van is great and this record is one of the greatest of his great records.
No lie. Try. Buy. Become a Van man.
OK, before you read my review, understand that I am a 28-year-old lover of soul, rhythm and blues, and blues music who thinks that Van Morrison is the most soulful white man alive. Read morePublished on April 28 2002 by Patrick H. Martens
