Van Morrison It’s Too Late To Stop Now Volumes 2, 3 & 4

It’s Too Late To Stop Now Volumes 2, 3 & 4 is a live album by Van Morrison.

This brings us more concert recordings from his 1973 tour that was the source for the original It’s Too Late To Stop Now. The original album picked tracks from:

  • The Troubadour, Los Angeles, California,
  • Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, Santa Monica, California,
  • Rainbow Theatre, London, England.

Volumes 2, 3 and 4 provides previously missing tracks from these venues on the following nights:

  • The Troubadour, Los Angeles, May 23, 1973,
  • Santa Monica Civic, California, June 29, 1973,
  • The Rainbow, London, July 23 & 24, 1973.

There is also the option to buy a version with a DVD of the highlights from the London show at The Rainbow on July 24, 1973.

I’ve been a Van Morrison fan for 40 years and I’ve long recognised that It’s Too Late To Stop Now is a terrific live album but could be criticised for:

  1. Not being long enough – it is just 92 minutes long which is good but not Springsteen-esque.
  2. It didn’t feature enough of Van Morrison’s own songs as there were 7 covers and 11 Van Morrison originals.

Volumes 2, 3 and 4 puts an end to those complaints.
