Deluxe 4CD/Blu-ray disc edition contains re-mastered album, 5.1 surround mix, plus 50 unreleased tracks!

Note: Blu-Ray disc contains audio only!

Experience this classic album like never before with the newly remastered and expanded version featuring 50 unreleased tracks including studio outtakes of favorites like "Caravan, "Moondance" and "Into The Mystic," plus multiple takes and a final mix of the unheard track "I Shall Sing."

The Deluxe Edition includes 4 CDs/1 Blu-ray Audio with newly remastered version of the original album — three discs of previously unreleased music from the sessions plus a Blu-ray Audio disc with high-resolution 48K 24-bit PCM stereo and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround sound audio of original album (no video). The package is presented in a linen-wrapped folio and includes a booklet with liner notes from Alan Light and original engineer Elliot Scheiner.

Moondance links together elements of gospel, rhythm & blues, jazz and rock as only the ultra-talented singer from Belfast can. Tunes like "Crazy Love," "Moondance" and "These Dreams of You" have become classics. No wonder music critics have always rated this album one of Van Morrison's finest.

This package includes multiple, often lengthy, takes from the recording sessions of nearly every track found on the 1970 original, including "Glad Tidings," "Brand New Day" and "Come Running." There are also early takes of "I've Been Working," a song that would appear later that year on His Band And The Street Choir. The early version included here is quite different from the official album version. The Deluxe Edition also includes a Blu-ray Audio disc with high-resolution stereo and surround mixes of the original album, mixed by original engineer Elliot Scheiner, who also oversaw the new re-mastering of the album.

One of the most significant revelations is "I Shall Sing," a Morrison original that was completed but left off the album. There are multiple takes of the song (spread across six tracks), plus a final mix of the finished song. While no one has heard Morrison's version, Art Garfunkel had a Top 40 hit with the song, which appeared on his 1973 solo debut.
