OT: New Van Morrison Live 1968 Recording

Hey, has anyone heard the new Van Morrison live 1968 show in Boston? I'd sure love to know where to find it.

Uploaded very quickly to UK iTunes then taken down. I haven't seen it otherwise. Someone must have gotten it, and I assume it'll be up on a torrent soon, but I haven't seen it elsewhere yet since disappearing.

Yes. It's a fair audience recording with some great versions of Cyprus Avenue, Beside You and Madame George prior to the release of Astral Weeks. TB Sheets is also great.

Just finished a book called "Astral Weeks -- a Secret History of 1968" by Ryan H. Walsh and that recording figures very prominently in the story. The author first hears of long time Morrison pal Peter Wolf having a tape which would have to be "baked." At the end of the book he mysteriously receives an incomplete digital copy -- maybe that is part of what goes on here. Anyway, Morrison I'm sure would not appreciate it being available much less for free.

Good interesting book btw.

So what are some of his best bootleg shows that are available? I've always found Morrison's and Donovan's shows to be tough finds.

There are loads of Van Morrison boots out there and he doesn't mind it at all any more than Dylan does. I would love to hear this 1968 show whether it's officially released or not.

Best audios of Van : Fillmore East 1970 ( Bill Graham mixing board) and, quite possibly the ultimate, KSAN-FM live fro Pacific High Recording Studios 1971. Van’s interpretation of Dylan’s “Just Like A Woman” you will find yourself playing over and over. As Greil Marcus writes, Van “owns” it.

My understanding is that it was made available and then taken down to renew the copyright protection...since it's quasi legal I'm not sure if it can be offered over at the hot stuff forum

So what are some of his best bootleg shows that are available? I've always found Morrison's and Donovan's shows to be tough finds.

These are the known soundboard recordings traded up till the IT'S TOO LATE TO STOP NOW live Album (avalaiable nowaday in four volumes):

9 March 196, Deventer, Holland, Buitensocieteit
One more time; If you and I could be as two; Gloria; Hey girl; Sad eyes; Mystic eyes.

17 July 1970 Randall’s Island, New York, Pop Festival
Come running

26 April 1970 San Francisco, Fillmore West
Moondance; Glad tidings; Crazy love; Come running; The way young lovers do; Everyone; Brown-eyed girl; And it stoned me/These dreams of you; Caravan; Cyprus avenue ; Into the mystic.

9 October 1970 San Francisco, Fillmore West
Gloria/Mystic eyes; Glad tidings; These dreams of you; And it stoned me; Crazy love; I’ve been working; Ballerina; Astral weeks; Moondance; Domino; Into the mystic; Brown-eyed girl
This is one of lost treasures, unearthed in November 2010. The tape crossed twice the Atlantic to end up in a professional studio to be transferred. Stunning longest known recording of Astral weeks (12:17). Musicians: Dave Sarlin (g); Alan Hand (kb); John Armstrong (bg); Dahaud Shaar (dr); Keith Johnson (tr); Jack Schroer (sax).

4 July 1971 San Francisco, Fillmore West

Sweet thing; Street choir; Tupelo honey; Que sera sera/Hound dog; When that evening sun goes down; Let it be me; Moonshine whiskey; Just like a woman; I've been working; Gloria; Buena sera senorita.
This recording of both Lion Share’s concerts from 8 August 1971, obviously taken from original reels, turned up after 43 years in February 2014. It is said to be in ‘stunning quality’.

15 February 1973 San Francisco, Lion's Share (late show)
I've been working; Wild children; St. Dominic's preview; Listen to the lion; Since I fell for you; Misty; The white cliffs of Dover; Caravan; Hard nose the highway; I just want to make love to you.

I wonder if DaveG caught any of these shows. Where might some hearty souls look to find these treasures? Thanks for the list.

I agree, especially "Beside You," I found myself playing it over and over last night. I must disagree with labeling it a fair audience recording. To my ears it's nothing less than very good. The bass, flute, guitar and vocals are quite clear well mixed. Granted there are cuts after each song but the audience applauds are well in front. It's a listening crowd not a rowdy one.

Here is the entrance to the Catacombs club where this recording took place from a picture in 2009:



A Night At The Catacombs
By Galen Rossop


You’re walking towards the Catacombs. You climb some steps up into 1120 Boylston Street and enter the doorway of the narrow building. You walk towards the stairs on the far side of the small room. You pass an open door with a buzzing office full of people in the daytime or a closed office door at night. You go down the winding stairwell and glance into a dark seedy smoke filled pool hall on the floor below the office people. You continue on as you go down another flight of stairs to the basement below or what some people call the sub-basement.

You enter the coffee house and view a gothic wood paneled cave.
A beautiful college aged mid-eastern woman greets you. You hand her a dollar. There’s a band playing tonight.
Peggy Haddad and her BU crew are everywhere. They are helping and serving a full house of customers. This is a place to see and be seen. It’s another friendly fun filled night at the Catacombs.
The aromatic aroma of exotic coffee, tea, and spice makes you hungry for more. Plates of international cheeses with crackers and flatbread pass by. Some raspberry tarts with hot caramel chocolate and whipped cream crosses in front of you along with a tray of spiced cider and the House drink, “Catacombs Blood”.
You find your table. You’re thirsty and starving. You can’t wait to order.
You look towards the small stage on a low riser. The group’s equipment fills most of the space so that the lead singer has to push out onto the tiny dance floor for room enough to move.
A huge medieval tapestry is hung like a giant curtain behind the stage. It’s ancient and it’s hard to make out the faded images on the tapestry. The tapestry covers an opening that leads out into what had been a torch lit tunnel. It was built during the colonial period. A tangled web of passageways passes under the city of Boston. They connect a number of buildings in the surrounding area, including the Music Hall to the Catacombs.
There are a couple of tiny club spotlights and whatever the band brings for amps and lights. The Universal Underpass’s Kustom 200 watt PA is up and running again tonight. Most bands suffer when it’s removed from the coffee house to be used elsewhere.
Everybody is trying to get settled before the first set. Eat, drink, and get comfortable. Music is the reason for coming. Tonight, like most nights, it’s one featured group. The lights dim and the band begins to play.

Orphan, which became the Universal Underpass was the first House Band.
J. Geils and Van Morrison were some of the first regulars to play in rotation at the Catacombs.

Has anyone seen Van play recently? I just scored a ticket to see him in Vegas at the end of the month. He's 1 of the few artists I reall like that I have never seen. I was supposed to see him open for the Stones in Vancouver but the show got rescheduled & Bonnie Raitt ended up opening. He's playing the theater at Caesar's Palace which is an excellent venue. Excited, doing a Vegas run to celebrate the birthday. Has been over a year since I've been down there. They are hurting down there & I got 3 nights at Mandalay Bay for free.

Saw him this summer at an open air gig in Glasgow. Also at the same venue two years ago. He was I excellent form vocally and playing a lot of sax. His band is very tight and I thoroughly enjoyed both gigs (have seen him a few times over the years). Expect a more jazzy sound than rock and a mix of material drawn from his back catalogue and more recent albums. Plenty of crowd pleasers all the way back to Gloria and a few more obscure numbers for the purists. His take on some of the "warhorses" - including Moondance and Have I Told You Lately - is much jazzier than the originals, but some are much closer to the original arrangements. He's a world class performer still at the top of his game and I'm sure you'll enjoy the show immensely!
