Montreux 1980 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Casino de Montreux, Montreux, Switzerland; July 10, 1980. Very good FM broadcast.

Thanks to skiddlybop for sharing the show at The Traders’ Den.


Montreux 1980 is for me an absolute must have show. I don’t know if this remaster was the master for the bootleg “Invocating the Protector of Angels,” but I’m sure that this remaster sounds really great. If somebody has the silver bootleg, please make a comparison  with this and let us know if they are different.

  2. This show is available on YouTube and is maybe a step below It’s Too Late To Stop Now as one of the definitive Van documents.

  3. Rumor has it Van gots a Big Un

  4. When Van first stood naked in front of me , he resembled a human tripod. For such a short guy , his Dic was enormous. It almost touched the floor , and when fully hard , stood out at half mast like a long thick flagpole . It was hard to suck it , because it was so thick and hard to get in my mouth . In my pussy it felt like it was going to come thru my throat . As for anal , forget about it.

  5. Van was definitely the man . I fucked him ( backstage of course) in 73 after a concert. He had a Giant Coc . I sucked it for an hour , before he gave me a real pounding. He really worked me over good .

  6. This complete show was officially released on Van’s DVD “Live at Montreux 1980/1974 in 2006.

  9. Bebe , Pam and all of the seventies rock groupies are an embarrassment to the current Me Too Movement.

  10. Women today are too uptight. What normal red blooded straight gal wouldn’t want to suck and fuck a monster prick . I was born too late unfortunately 81, but if I had been around earlier, I would have been right there with the groupie legends . My fantasy was always the Beatles, until I found out they all had teenie weenies.

    By Dee Dee Longley on Apr 11, 2021

  11. I also fucked Van in the late 70s His Coc was like a bazooka. It really hurt at first , but once I loosened up it felt really good .

    By Groupie Chick Traci on Apr 11, 2021

  12. Van Morrison never seemed like the groupie magnet that he apparently was . These comments make him seem like he was in Kiss or Motley Crue .

  24. Totally laid back and awesome! Not at all like the mid 90’s frantic, virtuoso band freak outs but more of a soul approach to the warhorses. Wow.
