When Van Morrison's double-length It's Too Late to Stop Now was released in 1974, it was an anomaly. Compiled from eight nights on his 1973 tour with his 11-piece Caledonia Soul Orchestra, it appeared months prior to Hard Nose the Highway. Contrary to standard industry practice of the time, its contents weren't doctored in the studio afterwards: There were no added overdubs or masked flubs. Some critics took issue with its sound – claiming the band, particularly the horns, were too thin – but there was no debate about the performances. It remains revered as one of the greatest concert recordings ever.

Most of the originals (either by Brecker, Beard, or producer Don Grolnick) project moods rather than feature strong melodies, but Michael Brecker's often-raging tenor makes the most of each opportunity.

Probably possessors of the strangest tale of any group form the rock age, Pink Floyd somehow manage to remain amongst the most popular music acts of all time. And despite being on indefinite hiatus for almost 20 years - longer if the classic line-up is considered - the very mention of their name is still enough to garner an emotional response in even the hardiest of fans. But surely such response are justified when speaking of a group of musicians who have not just proven themselves the most experimental and cutting edge of any chart regulars over the period that such things have been considered important, but who have also inspired and informed a host of subsequent musicians and composers, many of which are the most interesting and important of the current age.
