New York Sessions '67 is a two-disc retrospective album of recordings made by Van Morrison in 1967 for Bang Records that were later released in the 1990s.[a][b][c] Other album releases with the same recordings have been called Payin' Dues[a] and The Complete Bang Sessions.[c] The first disc presents material already available on Blowin' Your Mind! and on the previous Bang compilation albums T.B. Sheets and Bang Masters. The second disc contains the notorious "Contractual Obligation" session – thirty-one improvised nonsense songs Morrison recorded in order to fulfill his contract with Bang Records. The song "Thirty Two" takes a swipe at Berns's production style and "Brown Eyed Girl": Morrison sings "we'll get three guitars .. and we'll do the sha, sha-la-la bit." Tracks from this album would be officially released on the compilation album The Authorized Bang Collection.
