Ranked 65/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Remastered from the Original Analog Tapes by Kevin Grey at Acoustech and Pressed on 180 gram RTI vinyl! True Audiophile-Quality!

If Astral Weeks was the work of a poet, its sequel was the statement of a true musician and bandleader. Van Morrisons Moondance is that rare rock album where the band has buffed the arrangements to pure perfection. The pastoral imagery of the sweetly nostalgic album opener, And It Stoned Me, establishes the dominant lyrical motif recurring throughout the album and virtually every track is bathed in natural wonder, whether it's the nocturnal magic celebrated by the title cut or the unlimited promise offered in Brand New Day. At the heart of the record is Caravan, an incantatory ode to the power of radio; equally stirring is the majestic Into the Mystic, a song of elemental beauty and grace. Moondance shows an artist enraptured by a new-found musical freedom, blending together elements of gospel, rhythm & blues, jazz and rock and from this moment on everything Van sang had soul. This LP is guaranteed to beat any pressing you've ever heard! Our highest recommendation!

SoundStageDirect Glossary

VINYL RECORDS

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!

180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP

These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.

VINYL REISSUES

Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
