Van Morrison and the Summer of ’69 campaign are proud to release Van Morrison’s universally critically acclaimed third album ‘Moondance’ on a orange vinyl disc. The album spans Blues, rock, jazz and folk and has gone on to be a quintessential album in redefining and adding to these genres.

Receiving rave 5 star reviews from Rolling Stone and the Independent, the album has come to be regarded as a culturally significant release, also helping Morrison establish himself as a major artist in popular music, while several of its songs became staples on FM radio in the early 1970s. The title includes classic tracks such title ‘Moondance’, ‘Into the Mystic’, and ‘Crazy Love’

If Astral Weeks is the work of a poet, its sequel comes on as the statement of a fully realized musician and bandleader. Van Morrison‘s Moondance is that rare rock album where the band has buffed the arrangements to pure perfection. And now, you can experience it on the finest-sounding pressing that’s ever been made courtesy of this 180g LP, remastered at Acoustech from the original analog tapes by Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman. Practically every audiophile press outlet in the world has sung its praises. Moondance has never had such power.

The pastoral imagery of the sweetly nostalgic album opener, “And It Stoned Me,” establishes the dominant lyrical motif recurring throughout the album. Virtually every track is bathed in natural wonder, whether it’s the nocturnal magic celebrated by the title cut or the unlimited promise offered in “Brand New Day.” “Caravan,” an incantatory ode to the power of radio, lies at the heart of the record, while the equally stirring “Into the Mystic” arrives as a song of elemental beauty and grace. Moondance shows an artist enraptured by a new-found musical freedom, blending together elements of gospel, rhythm & blues, jazz, and rock.
