The Healing Game Live! [no label, 1CD]

Fan compilation. Various dates and venues. Very good audio - mix of radio broadcasts and audience recordings?

The Healing Game [1997] is the 26th studio album by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison.

Mark Coleman,

Though The Healing Game won’t erase the years of dashed expectations, it should salve the wounds of frustrated fans. Morrison hasn’t retreated from his spiritual quest or retracted his loathing of Information Age phonies. Maybe he has just remembered something: Graspable tunes and reasonable, cogent lyrics are a more efficient means of communicating than endless vamps and lofty sermonizing. The Healing Game’s 10 songs adhere to pop structures while allowing him room to stretch his celebrated vocal cords. Morrison works the gruff low end of his register to great effect, especially; like a veteran blues belter, he’s grown more authoritative with age.

Thanks to robbiem for sharing the tracks at Dime.

robbiem noted:

A few of these songs were played quite sparingly and generally only for a short period directly after the album was released in June, 1995. Consequently, some tracks are of less than stellar quality and, for those, it was because the selection was extremely limited.

Many thanks and much appreciation for all the tapers, masterers and seeders for making this sort of thing possible. Special thanks to prb for being a font of knowledge and clarity.

  3. Another Van Morrison post , designed to piss off the guy who’s sick of Van the man . Ask for something and you get the opposite. I suppose Van having a big un has something to do with all these shows . Here comes U L E and the groupie whores with their penis worship.

    By DD on Sep 15, 2021

  14. I cant stop jacking off to AOCs Tax The Rich Dress. She reminds me of my mother the whore and my father who pimped her out to the Nazis. We were Jewish but we got a break cause my father let the Nazis do anything to her. They gave her golden showers and brown baths

  26. Van had a horse dic . It was so long and fat . He could fuck for hours and had great stamina . He would be ready to go again almost Immediately after blowing his load . He would usually come in my mouth first , then in my tight pussy . As for anal ? Forget about it . He would have ripped me apart with that thing . Van was very short , when he would stand naked , he resembled a human tripod.

    By Pam Des Barris on Sep 16, 2021
