  2. Van Morrison’s performance and singing is vibrant, the band is ebullient, The background singers wonderful, and the song selection very good. Thank you so much!

    As Dick Dale (King of the Surf Guitar)has said, the gophers aren’t delivering my mail yet!

  3. This is wonderful! As ScarRad has said but doesn’t really mention the quality here. It is excellent thanks to the FM quality radio broadcast. I guess we are spoilt but I am getting fed up with poorer quality Van boots. There is no need when there is so much fine fine stuff around like this!
    Thanks Big O! (again!)

  4. This was a great era for Van. He had a lot of superb recent songs, was in great voice, and invariably had a solid band behind him. There are some fantastic audience recordings from the era as well as numerous soundboard/broadcast shows. I have many, but not this one. Thanks for sharing it.
