Well initial thoughts walking out of the Pavilion were that it was a great show,not as good as Brighton but still great. However I have now listened to it half a dozen times and I have changed my mind, this was awesome but on a different level to Brighton, there it was party time but here in Bournemouth it was a more serious show.We should have known, Enlightment played, No brass joke in Fair Play, These Dreams and a Talk is Cheap and then it came, The band started All in the game moved to, you know what they’re writing about and Van centre stage with hand held mic , moved the mic stand out of the way, moved the music stand with lyrics out of the way, turned it to the audience, and then he told us about what really counted,Listen to the Lion, No Safety net is needed or ever has been, the band played on, garden,st james and then help me, Van starting it on sax not harp, it was nearly over just a Gloria to go but no ,he comes back, the Chords of Gloria dont start but instead the organ starts with the opening to Tupelo Honey, Van straps on his Les Paul and treats us to a couple of guitar solos,into Gloria and end.This was no ordinary show , this was extraordinary.
Thank you Van for a wonderful weekend, I hope my recordings did the shows some justice.
Nothing has been done to the File except trimming the rubbish at the beginning and end and a fade in and out added, and of course splitting the tracks, no volume adjustments have been made so you may find it quiet,but thats what the big dial on your Hi-Fi marked volume is for. Do what you want with it now, after all I nicked it off Van, If you master it and improve it please repost as id love to hear it.

Review by Brian Murphy:
I picked up this CD on the weekend. — Absolutely amazing. It was recorded in 1988 from concerts with the Chieftains in Ireland and contains most of the stuff from Irish Heartbeat. [It contains a] version of “Moondance” – as an *IRISH JIG*. Yes that’s right. I couldn’t believe it. It sounded just like an ordinary jig until I heard the words. I didn’t think that he could still find anything new in the song, the way he plays it in concert recently, but this just blew me away. Also a version of “Send In the Clowns” in which he actually sings it for real, no clowning around, no long pauses, no nothing. Just Van singing a great song as if he means it. (This track is not from the Chieftains concert, but comes from Ronnie Scott’s club in 1986)

Reviews (who were reviewing a different bootleg CD but for the same date)

Review from David Walker:

One of the strongest boots to come along in quite a while, Rave On is a very crisp soundboard recording from a not-well-documented period: 1987 prior to the tours with the Chieftains. Van’s voice is in good shape, and his band, many of whom played on Poetic Champions Compose, are tight and often inspired. For me, the highlights of the CD are the fast numbers: “Dweller on the Threshold,” “Cleaning Windows,” and “Full Force Gale”; Van’s clean phrasing and the band’s precise, energetic rhythms make these renditions particularly memorable.If some of the meditative numbers – “A Sense of Wonder” and “And the Healing Has Begun,” in particular – seem a bit too fast or prosaic, they’re certainly competent and enjoyable. There’s really not a bad cut on the album.

That said, I have to express my regret that the version of “One Irish Rover” Van performed at this show is omitted from this album. It’s my all-time favorite version of the song: although very short (about three minutes), it is beautifully arranged and sung with a subtlety and emotional emphasis that make it quite unique. It *was* included in the BBC radio broadcast of this show in Europe a while back, but was omitted from the Westwood 1 Superstar Concert Series radio package that was broadcast on US stations in June 1997. It is the Westwood 1 radio discs that provided the source for this bootleg CD.

According to Van expert Kevin Sheets, the Westwood 1 broadcast was superior to the
earlier BBC European one, because although it unfortunately omits “One Irish Rover” (and “Help Me”), it includes several other very good songs that the European broadcast lacked.
Although not as stunning as the great Live in Montreux 1990 (aka Down by Avalon), Rave On is well worth taking the trouble to find, particularly if you’re partial to Van’s mid-to-late eighties period.

Review from Carlo in Berkeley:
This CD is the June 21, 1987 Glastonbury Festival show that was originally recorded by the BBC and broadcast in the U.S. on June 16, 1997 by Westwood One Entertainment as part of their Superstar Concert Series. What the producers of this CD have obviously done is remove the announcer comments and commercials from the 2-CD set distributed by Westwood One Entertainment. Being digital, the sound quality is the same as on
the Westwood One CDs.

This is an excellent show and the sound quality of this live soundboard
recording is superb. Rave On is a ‘Best Buy’ since you get the great performance without the dumb announcer comments and obnoxious commercials that are on the collectors radio show CDs at one/fourth the cost. I am forgiving when it comes to the many errors in the setlist since I could not begin to do something similar in Norwegian.

Review From Tony:

Well I picked Glastonbury 87 to start with, and I even listened to it again
specially [what a chore!] and made a few mental notes.

But then when I went to check something turns out the reviews included in
the post said everything I was going to say and more (and better).

Let's give it a bump.  There are one or more AUD tapes floating around
and from what I've heard these are fairly average.
But the soundboard from Doberman Records is excellent even at 256kbps,
hard to see how it could be better really.  Plenty of presence and detail.
The fluid basslines can easily be followed for instance.

Great show, great set list, and a great band - a special mention for bass
and drums: fabulous rhythm section, they really bring things like Dweller On
The Threshold alive.  Whoever they were I'm guessing they didn't stay long
with Van (based purely on the few recordings I've heard from the later 80s).

Anyway, gets my vote for a top 20 Van show.

Additional note from Blair, February 1998:
There appears to be another version of Glastonbury ’87, also entitled Rave On [cover shown at right]. The only difference I have been able to detect is that this “new” version includes an introduction to the “living legend, Van Morrison’, thus making it 10 seconds longer than the earlier version. There is nothing on either the disk or cover to indicate the source of production, other than “VTM 001”.

I don’t have any source information on this one. It is definitely an audience recording, but a good one. Sound is very clear. Audience noise is mostly noticeable between songs with the exception being a couple of chatty girls near the microphone who have dumb conversations during some of the slow songs.

Note:
This concert has also been released under the name Can You Feel the Silence…, with minor differences in the track timings.
Notes from Jan Seijbel and Guenter Becker:
The concert which this boot was taken from was originally broadcast on German TV as part of the Rockpalast series, recorded in the Gruga Halle in Essen.
Some sources mistakenly show the date of this show as April 3, for the following reason: the Rockpalast Night, where this show was taken from, started on April 3, around 23:00 MEZ with Rick James. Van played the second set and this was around 01:00 MEZ on April, 4. There was also a rehearsal for this show the week before, but to date there has been no word of a circulating tape from this rehearsal.
