Van Morrison Concert Weekend: “Caravan” (live with The Band)

The Hunt For New Music : Van Morrison appearing with The Band in 1979 during the final concert of the seminal documentary, The Last Waltz.The Song is “Caravan” one of his very best and a signature tune. The movie was directed by Martin Scorsese  and if you have not seen it, it is definitely something any music lover should view. Pay particular attention to the very strong horn section that drives the last section of the song. The story (do not know if it is true or not) is that Van Morrison did not know he was going to be going on stage to perform until the last minute and had misgivings up until the last second….but obviously not after the first note. This is a classic.
