If you haven’t already heard Van Morrison’s new album “Astral Weeks Live at the Hollywood Bowl”, I would recommend you do so. It is the latest in a series of excellent live albums by Van dating back to “It’s Too Late To Stop Now”.
But it is not the new live album that we feature today – I am not quite that flagrant in my disregard for the copyright laws (although Joe Shirimani may disagree). Instead, from a bootleg recording from 1971, here is Van laying into Lonnie Donegan’s “Dead or Alive”.
And as a bonus, here is Lonnie himself with “Fort Worth Jail”.
