A 24-bit/96-KHz flac24 version of this recording is also available.
Warning/Disclaimer: This recording should not be confused with the series labelled “The Dan Lampinski Tapes Volume XX”. This recording represents part of Dan’s earliest efforts to capture the live concert experience for posterity, hence the series name “Dan Lampinski – The Early Years Volume XX”. Given the very consistent high quality of Dan’s later work, it would have been easy to blow off these recordings and consign them to the dustbin of history, but there are quite a few captures in the series that are well worth circulating, if not for their rarity, but for the obsessive collector types (we know who we are) that want every single second of any recordings of their favourite musicians. So please, just accept these recordings for what they are, another part of the tapestry we weave when we collect and share such things.
Since Dan never traded copies of his recordings, they are all essentially uncirculated. Some copies were made for friends, but these releases are the first time most of these recordings have ever seen the light of day, and are direct from his master cassettes. No EQ’ing has been done to any of the transfers. Feel free to EQ, matrix, patch, etc and re-post if you like, just give Dan credit for the original recording.
Dan was very meticulous about taking good care of his tapes and is very pleased that these recordings will now circulate among the trading community. Please honour his kindness and generosity by sharing these recordings freely.
The transfers are available as 16bit/44.1KHz flac files suitable for CD burning, and also as 24bit/96KHz flac files for those who prefer the higher resolution.
Always remember – the more generous you are with your music, the more it comes back to you.

Van Morrison - Belfast, Northern Ireland (08/28/15) - Irish Times Interview

Irish Times Interview
published August 28th 2015

Download: FLAC/MP3

Excellent Long Interview with minimal Music Content
SOURCE: Internet > Soundforge PRO 10c > FLAC Level 8
Split into Tracks

His often difficult relationship with fans and interviewers isnít mere petulance or arrogance
or bad temper. It is a deep dissociation from the whole business of putting on a public face.
Paradoxically for such a great performer, he has a complete inability to perform ìVan Morrisonî,
the shaman-like figure of his songs, the conjurer of transcendent moments.
So you take him as you find him. And I find him courteous, engaged, oddly straightforward. All
he asks for is a cup of coffee and that we sit at the window of the hotel where we meet with a
view over Belfast Lough.
He looks as if he might have come straight from a boat in the bay, dressed in a well-worn green
waxed jacket and a fishermanís cap, a ruddy, wind-blown glow to his cheeks. The only disconcerting
thing about him is a kind of simplicity Iíve never encountered in anyone else Iíve interviewed,
the simplicity of someone who has no game to play, no impression to make, no line to sell, no image
to construct or maintain.
