  1. Wow, I can’t thank you enough for this Mat. I’ve been collecting Van boots for quite a while and have gotten so many from your site, and I’d say this falls in the top 5-10 due to how early it is, how relatively clear it is for an Aud tape, the setlist (He Ain’t Give You None? Amazing) and the fact that you posted it in a SHN option for full fidelity.

    Thanks for kicking off the weekend just right!

  2. I second that request, would love it! The performance from a day earlier is in my top 3 favourite Van performances.


  3. Incidentally, the line up is not as listed here – it was some of the people who had been recording Saint Dominic’s Preview at that time: Jack Schroer, Jules Broussard, Doug Messenger, Tom Salisbury, Bill Church, Gary Mallaber, with (probably) Janet Planet, Ellen Schroer and Mark Springer on backing vocals. I’m about to publish a book called Saint Dominic’s Flashback and have been tapping the memories of a number of the musicians…
