(Radio.com) Recordings Van Morrison made for Bang Records in 1967, including an entire disc of previously unreleased tracks, will be included in the upcoming set The Authorized Bang Collection.

The compilation gathers tracks the singer-songwriter laid down during his brief period on legendary producer Bert Berns' label, including the original recording of Morrison's epic, 'Brown Eyed Girl." It can be preordered here.

"Bert Berns was a genius," Morrison said in a statement. "He was a brilliant songwriter and he had a lot of soul, which you don't find nowadays." The collection, due April 28, features three discs of music that Morrison recorded alongside Berns. The first disc contains original masters from Morrison's Bang sessions - including original mixes of songs like "T.B. Sheets" and "Madame George." Read more including the tracklisting here.
