Common One Live! [no label, 1CD]

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

Common One (1980) is Van Morrison’s 12th studio album. In contrast to many of his previous albums, Common One ventures more into the realms of free jazz than the usual Van Morrison R&B, with the sax playing of Pee Wee Ellis coming to the fore. The songs are also somewhat longer than on his previous albums. While the album was not well received by critics, Morrison has cited Common One as his favourite of his own albums. - wikipedia

  2. One of my favorite Van albums! Thanks for these live versions. Around the time of this album and the two that followed, he refused to play his earlier songs live.

  3. Similar to Dylan refusing to perform anything but his gospel songs for a couple of years.

    By Mark on Jun 23, 2021

  4. I think that was Van’s way of expressing his displeasure with Warner Brothers for hanging on to the rights in Astral Weeks and Moondance, which Van considered he’d been cheated out of.

  9. He certainly does . Van is hung like a horse and can fuck nonstop for hours . He would wear out my pussy when we would fuck . It took him a long time to blow his load . It was hard to give him head because it was so thick . As for anal ? Forget about it.

    Tis me.

  11. My syphilitic ramblings are as boring as all the other penis talk. Rock stars didn’t want to fuck me, I was a well known STD carrier. I mostly was gang banged by roadies wearing so many condoms they took forever to cum, even if I was sucking them off. If they were in a hurry they jacked off on my face.
