Part of Van's Bang material, an overview of which is available here. This set has also been released under the name Payin' Dues on the Charly label, and as Van Morrison New York Sessions '67 in two different releases with different booklets (see below). One is a 2 CD version on Lost Gold Records out of London, on which Disk 2 is titled "Jamming Sessions", and consists of what are called the "Unreleased Takes" above. There's also a single CD version on Eagle Records titled Van Morrison: the Masters, with a few of the "Unreleased Takes" filling out the 74 mins. Yet another incarnation has appeared under the name Brown-Eyed Beginnings on the M.I.L. Multimedia label - again, a 2-disc set with "Jamming Session" on Disc 2 (see below). And more recently still, what appears to be yet another 2-CD version titled Van Morrison Millenium Collection.
New York Sessions '67 - version 1
New York Sessions '67 - version 2
Van Morrison: the Masters
Review by Scott Thomas:
While the first of the two discs is a poor man's The Bang Masters, the second disc contains short bursts of vindictive nonsense that Van recorded to get out of his Bang contract after Burns died; an acoustic precursor to Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music.
Review from Ric Kabat:
These two discs include the songs released on Blowin' Your Mind, TB Sheets, and Bang Masters plus all the outtakes. The unreleased takes are the recordings Van Morrison made after Bert Burns died in order to satisfy the Bang contract and move on to Warner Brothers. Unless one is determined to have everything that Van ever recorded, I wouldn't recomend them.
Additional note from Kevin A. Foss:
[This collection] is missing the one track on TB Sheets that was not reproduced on Bang Masters, namely the original "He Ain't Give You None."
