The Healing Game: Deluxe Edition is a revelation.

On today's Songcircle, we'll dive deep into the new, three-disc expansion of Van Morrison's 1997 album, The Healing Game, which unearths a treasure trove of rare and previously unreleased material, including collaborations with roots-music legends John Lee Hooker and Carl Perkins, acoustic and alternate versions, and a masterful live performance from the Montreux Jazz Festival, with a band featuring Pee Wee Ellis and Georgie Fame. Copies of this release will be available as thank-you gifts for listeners who reach out to support The Songcircle and KBOO Community Radio!
