Format: Audio CD
In the real world, another live album by Van Morrison would be met by most people & even some of his die-hard fans with a resounding yawn - yet the wonderful and largely ignored 1994 2 disc set "A Night In San Francisco" didn't and doesn't deserve that. Remastered and repackaged on this 30 June 2008 re-issue, there's even a half-decent bonus track tagged onto the end of CD 2 - "Cleaning Windows".

The album's just as good as its famous 1974 predecessor - the legendary "It's Too Late To Stop Now" - it's just a more updated version. The mixture of tracks is similar too - a lethal combination of his own best compositions (new and old) with a healthy dose of rhythm `n' blues, soul, funk and jazz classics thrown in to lively up the mix.

I've been at Van gigs down through the years where he's God one night and a moody old curmudgeonly git the next! But what separates this set out is the extraordinarily inspired playing of the huge band that graced the stage with him. Each song is truly cooking. They're all enjoying themselves and the audiences' whoops and hollers are genuine too. At times, the slower songs like the lovely "See Me Through" and "Vanlose Stairway" are faster and funked up - and you feel he's blown it - but then one of the guests appears, plays a blinder, or the song cuts into another cover and suddenly the workout works. Four of the tracks are over 10 minutes, while one is nearly 17 - and yet they work. Recorded on the 18th of December 1993 in The Masonic Auditorium in San Francisco - you can only imagine, that the crowd went home very happy that cold wintry night.

I was lucky to be at the memorable Rainbow concert that featured on "Too Late To Stop Now". The album was a superb souvenir of a wonderful night. Over the years, I have drifted away from Van Morrison and cannot count myself as a big fan. I had never heard this 1994 concert, until I just fancied a bit of "Van the Man" one afternoon. Browsing Amazon, I came across these reviews and thought I'd give it a try.
Van is on top of his form, as are the many wonderful guests that grace this great concert. The sound quality is terrific, the selection of songs could not be bettered. What makes the album so effective, is the amazing groove that they sustain throughout. Lasting over two hours, there is no let up and it had me bopping around the house all afternoon and beyond (I couldn't just play it once!).
Generally, I find that live albums don't capture the excitement of the original performance and so they don't get played that often. Apart from jazz albums such as the Miles Davis' concerts of the sixties, I cannot think of many live albums that I would recommend. This is an exception. Give it a try!

I bought this as I only had a cassette of the album, and I wanted it for the sake of completeness. Whilst it is a kind of historical statement of how Morrison was working then-a kind of revue approach with guest singers, a sort of showband thing and Pete Mills is right, it is at times just SO fast, there are , as always, some wonderful moments such as having live performances of songs only heard by me on CD-'You make me feel so free' and 'So quiet in here' for example. It illustrates clearly the kind of music that is meaningful to Morrison, and especiaaly that of Sam Cooke.

I was lucky enough to see the Belfast version of this show at Dundonald Ice Bowl in May 1994 and was totally blown away. Having seen the genius that is Van Morrison a few times before this I was pretty sure what I was in for but boy, was I wrong! This show is without doubt the BEST live show I have ever seen. The jazz, blues, soul revue that he staged during these series of shows was real Knock You Off Your Feet stuff. With local boy Brian Kennedy on both back up and lead vocals, Shana Morrison featuring on a few songs and the then relatively (and unfortunately still) James Hunter on guitar and vocals nothing could have really prepared ypu for the power of this band. The Live in San Francisco CD is I believe Van Morrison at the absolute height of his powers as a live performing artist and it's one which is on extrenely regular play on my CD player. Do yourself a favour and just buy this!!!!

By F. M. Muse VINE VOICE on 9 Mar. 2009
Format: Audio CD
This two CD set features pretty much an all-star cast with the man himself on top form. Although originally recorded almost 15 years ago (1994), this is pretty timeless stuff. There's some harking back to earlier times as well as stuff which would have been from the man's then, recent output and some great covers. The guest artists represent a bonus as far as I'm concerned: all seem to be having a good time and it comes over in their performances. The supporting muso's are the usual high standard, with Georgie Fame and Dutch sax player Candy Dulfer deserving special mention. There's a certain amount of self-indulgence here,from pretty much everyone, but it's all in the best possible form and after all, this is live rock n' roll, and as such it's about as good as it gets.
