This is as curious a live album as exists in Van Morrison's voluminous catalog. It's a homecoming record in many ways, since Morrison went back home to live in Ireland shortly after this was released, after many years in the United States. Recorded in 1983 and released on Mercury in 1984, this is, in reality, a solid presentation of his "spiritual Celtic soul" period that began with 1979's Into the Music and would continue into the early '90s. Only the very beginning of the introduction contains anything from his much-celebrated early-'70s period.

In the early ’80s, Van Morrison released an enchanted trio of albums that combined spiritual and poetic themes with folk and jazz influences for a transcendentally soulful feel. This 1984 concert recording from his hometown of Belfast focuses on that otherworldly material, as the intensity of Morrison’s performance pushes the music to an even deeper place. From the luminous elegance of Dweller on the Threshold to the ethereal beauty of Haunts of Ancient Peace, this is Van at his most majestically mystical.

The Grand Opera House is a theatre in Belfast, Northern Ireland, designed by the most prolific theatre architect of the period, Frank Matcham. It opened on 23 December 1895. According to the Theatres Trust, the "magnificent auditorium is probably the best surviving example in the United Kingdom of the oriental style applied to theatre architecture". It was renamed the Palace of Varieties in 1904, although it reverted to its original name in 1909

The Grand Opera House is an opera house located at the corner of 8th and Iowa Streets in Dubuque, Iowa. Today it is recognized for the live performances shown throughout the year. Also other events, such as special lectures by national figures invited to the area by local educational institutions are held at the Grand. It was recorded from the two best out of four live shows in Belfast, Northern Ireland, (Morrison's birthplace) in March 1983 and the album was composed of songs chosen from Morrison's last four recordings. It is the second live album Morrison released, following 10 years after It's Too Late to Stop Now. This album was remastered and reissued by Polydor Records on June 30, 2008. Rave On John Donne/Rave On Part Two" from this album was listed as one of the standout tracks from the six-album reissue.

Live at the Grand Opera House Belfast is Van Morrison's second live album (or 3rd if you count the promo only Live At The Roxy 1979). Dating from 1984 it finds Van in fine form in his old home town evidently relishing the chance to perform live there. Starting with an introductory overture of Into The Mystic coupled with Inarticulate Speech Of The Heart, Van steps on stage to an appreciative audience to perform the track pulled as a single Dweller On The Threshold. The album really captures some of the atmosphere from an appreciative home crowd. Van in his natural habitat.
