The sound quality is pretty poor so I haven't played it much since I bought a year or so ago. I relistened to it the other day and was surprised to hear "Thank God" which of course I've been listening to on the Tell Me Something CD.

All songs on disc one and songs 1-6 on disc two recorded at St Davids Hall in Cardiff on 3/12/97. Disc two songs 7-11 recorded at the same venue on 4/12/97. Notes: This is reported to be produced from a very high quality audience recording.
 
Review by Van-L list member Cuttsy:
This is a fine double CD-R boot, from very good audience recordings, presumably a digital source tape made at Cardiff at the end of last year. Sound is clear and well balanced and has the edge over Sing It Like You're Proud. There's enough audience participation to give a nice feel without getting in the way of the music. Performance is very good. Van is in good voice and good spirits (no alcoholic pun intended although it may well be appropriate!).

The evening starts with plenty of appearances from The Healing Game then Van takes requests which creates great excitement - And - for once, he actually seems to listen to them! VTM's performance gets looser as the evening goes on. The band play really well, you can almost feel the rapport between them.

There's a lovely relaxed "Into the Mystic" although Van say's he's hoping to come up with a better horn part for it! Fine performances of WMIAE, HITYL, "Moondance", "Vanlose" and an excellent "Cyprus" (X2) follow. "Summertime" involves some journalist bashing and amazingly turns into the rarely performed "Just A Closer Walk With Thee". "That doesn't mean I've gone religious in any way shape or form - As Dave Allen says may your own god go with you"! The appearance of "Russian Roulette" and "Raglan Road" for me make this a great boot. It's a lovely collection, the more I hear it the more I enjoy it. I really wish I'd been there. Buyers will not be disappointed.

  Side B
  1. Domino
  2. Warm Love
  3. Caravan
  4. Cypress Avenue


All of side A and "Warm Love" from side B recorded on May 24, 1973. The other three tracks come from May 27, 1973. No venue mentioned but apparently it was the Troubadour Club, Los Angeles. Appears to have been printed/pressed in at least two variants (sleeves shown above) with the variant at top suspected as being the earliest. On that variant, the image is on a standard 8 1/2 by 11 sheet glued in the center of a light blue album cover.

Sleeve Note (from variant 2 pressing):
"Van Morrison is too important and rewarding an artist to miss. He's as exciting a performer as we have in contemporary music. His excitement comes from the intensity of his performance. When you see him struggle on stage to achieve his own sense of perfection, you can understand the drive that is behind his creativity. There were moments during his show that he hit the peak and you could wish that everyone who had ever been moved emotionally by music could be on hand to share the excitement. - L.A. Times"

Source: Diana De Roo

Additional notes: "Crazy Jane On God" appeared on test pressings of the A Sense Of Wonder album. It had to be removed from the final released version of the album because permission had not been obtained from the W. B. Yeats estate for the use of the poet's lyrics. This track is scheduled to appear on The Philosophers Stone presumably because Yeats' work is soon out of copyright (in 1999).

Review from Carsten Brenski: The CD must be a recording from a radio broadcast in the Netherlands. The sound is not too good, even regarding it has been broadcasted (no bootleg). But it's still worth listening, though. And the show is real rare. See also the bootleg vinyl album Amsterdam's Tapes, and the CD tree The Wonderland Tapes See the Glossary entry for Dr. John for more information. Note: from Simon Gee I've had correspondence from a friend of the Meters, and they say they are certainly not on this and have never recorded with Van!

The date is also wrong - it's 1977. The line up is the same as other shows around this time and the Wonderland tapes - Dr John, Mo Foster, Mick Ronson, Peter Van Hooke. Obviously the Italian 'producer' of the boot made up his sleeve notes!

Concert Notes: Van Morrison Family Dog, Denver, CO (10/13/67)



Van Morrison
10/13/67
Family Dog
Denver, CO

I could find very little information about this show, and as far as I can tell no recording exists. I've not seen a setlist either.  There is this poster from Mouse and some basic info about it, but that's all.   One additional not I have says that the street in front of the club was blocked off in some checkpoint fashion leading patrons to believe that the club was either raided or closed.

Notes: The first vinyl Van-content bootleg in many years. 500 were pressed.
Brian Heffler notes: "The first side is identical to Please No Moke. The second side is entirely different. The front cover is the same except for the "S" in front of MOKE. The back cover is entirely different. The labels are different."

From the Dutch eBay site where this was first noticed: "Fantastic LP of Cuby + Blizzards featuring Van Morrison of Them. On this album you will find unique recordings from 1967 when Van Morrison played with Cuby + Blizzards in Deventer, Holland . The songs were broadcasted in the programme "TIEN-R", on medium wave Dutch radio. 12 Tracks on this album including a symphonic version of "Window Of My Eyes" and a rare Italian cover of the killer "Your Body Not Your Soul".

The other tracks are : One More Time, If You And I Could Be As Two, Gloria, Hey Girl, My Lonely Sad Eyes, Mystic Eyes, Just For Fun, Appleknockers Flophouse, Travelling With The Blues,
