Another audience recording from 2010. Overall sound is pretty good. There’s quite a bit of crowd noise between songs which often overlaps into the actual music, but usually the quiet down for most of the song. To my ears it sounds a little far away, but mostly its quite pleasing.

Bootleg: Van Morrison - Sacramento, CA (09/05/71) "Moonshine Whiskey"

Live In Sacramento,
September 5, 1971

Date for this show is disputed. September 5 seems the most likely, but the bootleg as I downloaded it (which is also what the MP3s are labeled as) show 09/09/75. Best guess is some bootlegger changed the date to act like it was a new show instead of an already booted one.

Bill Craven followed VTM around California in the early 70’s recording Van with
a portable Sony stereo recorder and a dual element mic. The results
were fantastic, and the shows he caught have not been previously
circulated. These shows are exciting for their quality and rareness.
They are audience recordings. There are flaws and crowd noise, but
they are easy to listen to and very enjoyable.
There are some fade ins at the beginning and fade outs at the end on some tracks but no real music is lost. This was done by the taper Bill Craven.
