NOTES by original uploader:
An excellent audience recording that Iíd grade an A- in sound quality. The transfer was done by Ignatzmouse. This was treed via the Van-L, VanTrades and Archival Group @2000 with the title Raid The Moonlight. It includes a live version of ìMr. Thomasî, performed only a handful of times in 1984 and once in 1987 until it was resurrected live again in 1998-99 after the release of The Philosopherís Stone.

Source: NC, BVR, WL

A commercially ill fated festival held in the showgrounds at Ingliston near Edinburgh, good weather, good organisation but perhaps too diverse a bill that did not appeal to a wide enough audience .
The pairing of Van and the Cheiftains with a New wave set of acts was probably not a good idea in 1979, when audiences were quite polarised as to their likes and dislikes. 12,000 was not a big enough audience to justify another outing in 1980 .

Notes:
(There is another superb copy that circulates – I would highly recomend it ifyou can find it – a JTT version of this show with an Introduction bonus track incluced)

FreeMorrison Notes:
Although these files pass the auCDTect Flac Report and report 100% Flac, they are indeed MPEG sourced.
I believe I just got lucky with the setting in Total Recorder Pro and got some excellent wave files to create the Flacs.
There are SBE’s – but as this is the way the audio was played from the DVD I decided not to fix them, as the tracks flow seamlessly. (If you want to fix the SBE’s – feel free)

NOTES from the original uploader
The internal mics captured the show quite well. These mics were pretty sensitive so the levels
for the most part were good on the recording and nearly maxed. I balanced the channels only
and ran a tiny bit of EQ over the whole file.
My brother had a great trip to Ireland and Northern Ireland. He recorded all 4 shows that Van
performed that week (his idea!!). This show, plus the 18th, 19th and 21st, were all performed
at the Culloden Resort, which is a stunning place. The other three are coming in short time.
Each unique and each taped from different locations. For his first real taping adventure, he did
extremely well. The shows were small, 300 or so, in a dinner ballroom type setting. A beautiful
room. This first gig concentrated on the hits for a party crowd. It is the appetizer for the 3 great
shows to follow. The setlists are diverse and high energy and the last show a real treat IMO. Enjoy!!!

From the original uploader:
An excellent show from Van & his band.
I taped this from Row G right under the right hand stack. Crowd around me were quiet and apart from the bloke in front of me talking to his Mrs once or twice the only other thing to be aware of is me coughing – I’d a tickly cough all day and forgot to get a bottle of water. It’s not too bad but it’s there.
In my humble opinion this is the best recording I’ve ever made in the Point/O2/3 Arena.
For the old fashioned amongst us who still burn to disc I’d suggest splitting
after Talk Is Cheap.
