Van Morrison – 5 Brilliant Live Performances from 1986

When I was a young boy
Back in Orangefield
I used to gaze out
My classroom window and dream
And then go home and listen to Ray sing
“I believe to my soul” after school,
Oh that love that was within me
You know it carried me through
Well it lifted me up and it filled me
Meditation contemplation too

Oh we’ve got to go back
Got to go back
Got to go back
Got to go back
For the healing, go on with the dreaming
-Van Morrison (Got To Go Back)

I´ll try a new series of posts on Van Morrison cherry picking some of my favourite performances sorted by year. Here are some awesome songs from 1986…

On the road with my sword
And my shield in my hand
Pressing on to the new day
This love will surely last forever
This love will surely last always

Watch Van Morrison Performing @ Agape International Spiritual Center – August 30, 2017

Before his appearance on stage with Agape’s band, he was filmed sitting among the congregation at their huge centre in Culver City for the service, which lasted more than two hours.
“He’s a member of Agape,” said Dr Beckwith, who set up the centre in 1986 as “a movement that would take a stand for love, for peace, for being a beneficial presence on the planet”.

The name Agape comes from the Greek for unconditional love.
