Songs

All of the songs on the album had been previously released by Morrison, and most were recorded by him before being used in a movie. Two date back to his group Them, before he began to record as a solo artist. Two of the recordings, however, were previously unreleased, including a version of "Brown Eyed Girl" recorded specifically for the collection. The version of the album available for download on iTunes contains the song "These Are the Days". This song was used in the motion picture "Nine Months" and was originally released on Morrison's 1989 album Avalon Sunset.
