Summer was indeed beautiful back in 1989 when two legends – Bob Dylan and Van Morrison, pair up and climbed the Hill of the Muses in Athens, Greece where the two shared the day playing wonderful songs.
With Dylan recently finishing his 1989 European tour, he decided to meet up with Morrison, who also happens to be in Greece with the BBC crew to capture the documentary One Irish Rover: Van Morrison in Performances released 2 years later. That crossover was not something to miss for, as the duo sang and blended their voices to “Foreign Window,” “One Irish Rover,” “And It Stoned Me,” and “Crazy Love.” The latter can be seen below.
Morrison had long been a fan of Dylan’s work for many years, but he only shared the stage with the folk-rock legend in 1976, at The Band’s The Last Waltz’s concert. Just years later, Morrison would frequent on Dylan’s shows in Europe, and even embarked on a tour with him in 1991. but it was at this moment in the summer of 1989 that the pair truly flourished.
