Notes from original uploader:

THIS is Van’s Last Live Full Show Performance that was recorded before he went on his Hiatus until 1978. He did perform the next night 11-17-74 in Sacramento, CA. at the Memorial Auditorium but no recording or setlist has surfaced yet.

A Must Have for Van the Man fans. To many Highlights. The entire show is Exceptional in Sound, Setlist and Performance from the 4 Man Van Band

  1. Thanks for all these great Van shows; fantastic stuff worth sharing.

    Ain’t it sad about the ol’ WS? Too bad he’s not getting paid by You Know Who anymore to do You Know What to these posts!!


  2. No kidding? A while back, I saw on a popular torrent site that all the Bob posts had to be taken down. But then a bunch were re-posted a week or two later, as if his Bobness changed his mind. Who knows? Maybe he heard that his buddy Van fired the guy…

  3. Rumor has it that Dylan is planning to release a massive amount of his live recordings in some kind of official way so he hired WS to keep all his stuff of the Internets including sending DIME some kind of warning. It didn’t really work there as I see Dylan boots up all the time, but I have had most of my Dylan shows taken down.

  4. Wow. I guess it’s semi-legit for Bob (Columbia Records, whomever) to do that if he doesn’t want boots of the same shows to “compete” with official live releases. But I hope he loosens up after that. Seems he was pretty cool about bootlegs for so many years, it’d be a shame to see a permanent change.

    Thanks for the info, Mat.

  5. That’s just what I’ve heard, I could be completely wrong. I do know that Bob’s people sent DIME a message to take down all their Dylan boots and I know that most of my Dylan shows were taken down from Mediafire, etc.

    I’ve not seen anything official about him officially releasing all his live shows, but that’s the rumor.

  6. Hi Mat,

    Is there any chance you could re-up this one please? It looks awesome. Thanks for all the great music!!
