22 years after it was first released, The Healing Game is back in all its glory. This Deluxe 3CD Edition was released in March 2019 and features the original album as well as some thirty new releases from 1995/1997, ranging from alternate takes and duets to live performances. The first disc includes ten original songs and five bonus tracks. The second is devoted to sessions and collaborations, including early versions of The Healing Game and Fire in the Belly, five tracks with Carl Perkins and two with John Lee Hooker. Finally, the third CD is a concert recorded at the Montreux Festival in Switzerland on July 17, 1997. When The Healing Game was released in March 1997, Van Morrison was 52 years old and had about twenty solo albums to his name. Some of them, such as Astral Weeks (1968), Moondance (1970) and Veedon Fleece (1974) are considered to be among the best masterpieces in the history of rock music. Although this album doesn’t quite compare to these marvels, it is still a reminder that the Irish bard is a unique singer and songwriter. The two decades between the release of the original opus and this re-release will give people a chance to reappraise his soul-stirring music – that unmistakable mix of folk and jazz that never gets old and those lyrics spoken directly from the heart. © Max Dembo/Qobuz
