Download: FLAC/MP3

Track List Volume 1:

01 – Snow In San Anselmo – Van Morrison: Taken from The Orphanage, San Francisco, California July 29th 1974 (Soundboard) JTT “This recording is from a Streaming Broadcast therefore would be considered Lossy” Capture, Mastering and Artwork, by JTT *Note* I have different versions of this track – some from different venues, but this one is just amazing. You have to hear it to believe it. This is the best on the planet, and saying “Thank You” is just not enough. You are greatly appreciated Mr. JTT for your countless hours of work and years of experience – contributing freely to the Van Morrison Community across the globe. Happy Holidays and a tip of the hat to you sir for making 2011 an amazing year of new brilliant Van Morrison bootlegs.

02 – Spirit – Van Morrison: From Van’s Historic Performance captured to film – Live @ The Montreux Jazz Festival July 10th 1980. “Van Morrison Live at Montreux 1980 offers an intimate, yet very public glimpse into the soul of the artist. The stereo separation enhances the ambiance to an extent that you almost feel as if you were there. All in all, Van Morrison Live at Montreux 1980 is an outstanding show. Much like the man himself, these shows defy classification,,,,,,,,, but leave you utterly satisfied by virtue of the music’s quiet intensity!”

03 – Glad Tidings – Van Morrison: 1970 – Fillmore West SBD w 2 Bonus Tracks Fillmore East 1970 by FreeMorrison (04-26-70) Fillmore West – San Francisco, California (Soundboard) April 26th, 1970 (With Bonus Tracks from Fillmore East same year 1970)
