It’s Too Late to Stop Now, a superb concert set that neatly summarizes his career from his days with Them (represented by scorching renditions of “Gloria” and “Here Comes the Night”) through 1973’s Hard Nose the Highway (“Warm Love,” “Wild Children”). In addition to the hits, including “Caravan,” “Domino,” and “Into the Mystic” (the final line of which gives the album its title), Morrison even pulls out a handful of R&B chestnuts (“Bring It on Home to Me,” “Ain’t Nothin’ You Can Do”) before capping off the collection with a show-stopping rendition of Astral Weeks’ “Cyprus Avenue.” An engaging, warm portrait of the man at the peak of his powers.
