This concert has been written of much since it took place.VM on top form with an absolutely cracking band that inclded David Hayes,Katy Kissoon ans Pee Wee Ellis. 18 great Van songs.Recorded not long after 'Into The Music' had come out and included are some wonderful songs from that album such as 'Bright Side Of The Street',a brilliant version of 'Angeliou' and 'Troubadors'.Add to this songs like 'Moondance', 'Wavelength','Warm Love',Gloria', 'I've Been Working' and the amazing version of 'Tupelo Honey'. Songs that still are performed today by him, 'It's All In The Game', 'Call Me Up In Dreamland' and of course 'Brown Eyed Girl'. You may have versions by him of these songs already,as I have,but the thing that makes this release stand out is this wonderful band he had then,a horn section that just lifts every time it appears, The songs are from the very best popular music will ever have,by one of the greatest singer/songwriters of all time. Recorded at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic,New Jersey on October 6th 1979. A set that stands the test of time so well,if your a VM fan you won't want to miss out, this is classic stuff,and unmissable.Immortal release some great live shows ,I've already got the Eric Clapton double album recorded in Japan plus the Jeff Beck 2 CD set also from a concert in Japan when Jennifer Batten was playing in his band. All of these recordings are so great,but this Van one is pure magic. Overall Immortal Records are good quality, good sound and extremely good value,but more than that great performances by the best in the business. Like Van,you'll love this set from the late 70's.

The sound lacks depth and colour, but the performance is excellent. Best live version of 'Wavelength' I've ever heard. But buy all the Van-endorsed live albums first (I can't imagine this one was released with his blessing).

Had great hopes of this but no to be. About 4 songs are good enough to listen to, the rest are so so. Overall sound is mud mud mud. Get Live at The Hollywood Bowl or It's too late to Stop Now!

As a long time Van follower , 1972 onwards and with over 50 shows on CD to enjoy this to my ears sounds very much like a good quality bootleg recorded in the venue so the overall sound quality varies quite a bit over the two discs with some instruments inaudible at times; the drums sound rather ' muddy ' , but for a collector such as me there was much to enjoy in this double cd set. Recorded in 1979 Van was on fine form with a first rate band performing to an appreciative American audience who fortunately desist from their annoying habit of often shouting during songs. If you are new to VM then live he is a different kettle of fish to his studio offerings and if you want to sample live Van then avoid Live At The Capitol and I recommend you seek out the Night In San Francisco 2 CD to start with as you get a full force set played by a tight band at the top of their game lead by the Man. The Capitol art work is lazy with no mention of the band members at all , a short history of Van and a smiling , yes I said smiling , image of Van , however although he was smiling then he certainly will not be now with the release of this ' official ' recording containing fluffed lyrics and messing up his timings to songs . There is no way Van would have sanctioned this live set but for me it was one I had to add to my collection , hope there are more on the way !

I enjoyed this set, though I have to say if you want a definitive Van Morrison live set it has to be Too Late To Stop Now.
