Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
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 '70s, 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

"EXCELLENT ALBUM. I REMEMBER JAMMING TO IT IN 1980. BUT YOU GOTTA BE ON DRUGS, A DUFUS HALF-WIT, A RICH MAN, OR ALL THE ABOVE, TO PAY OVER 50 BIG ONES FOR A CD. IT'LL LIKELY BE REISSUED RELATIVELY SOON. LATERS."
Van Morrison "A Beautiful Mind"

"This CD simply shows Van at his best. When Van is at his best, as he is on "It's Too Late to Stop Now", NOBODY can top him. From the great songs he writes like "Cypress Avenue" to "Into The Mystic" and others, there is no question about it, Van IS THE MAN. He delivers the goods here time and time again. And let's not forget those great musicians backing him either, especially the string section. Do yourself a favor when listening to this CD sometime, close your eyes and "follow" (focus on) the string section only. Put Vans voice alittle in the background on this listen through. You will find that the string section will take you to a most glorious, peaceful and beautiful place. You will be happy. This CD is Van Morrison at his very best. If you're reading this, "It's too late to stop now" so buy it and go to dreamland."
The best live album ever!

"Ok, so I haven't actually listened to all of the live albums ever recorded, but after listening to Van Morrison's "It's Too Late to Stop Now" I hardly feel I ever have to listen to another. This two CD set is worth it for "Caravan" alone, which showcases Van on a very good night doing what he used to do best. The track is backed by some very awesome musicians, most notably a very cool string section. Van hasn't completely lost his singer-songwriter gift, but this album makes you realise how back in the day he was the cat's pajamas."
