Review by Nathan Wirth:
I believe that tracks 9-14 are actually taken from the KKCY FM broadcast on
New Year’s Eve 1985.
Van provided these tracks for KKCY to broadcast as a New Year’s eve special.

The Orphanage material was actually broadcast on television (so videos of it do exist),
and I believe that Yellow Cat used it as its source.

The evening was hosted by Tom Donahue — a local Bay Area radio personality —
and there are several quick interviews with Van throughout the CD.

Musicians:
The backing band on the Orphanage tracks was Soundhole, a band from the San Francisco Bay area who backed Van up for two years in the early 1970s. More information on Soundhole can be found at:

Checked For SBE’s  – none found.
Some Flac files may report MPEG source as they should from the radio capture.

Feel free to PM me with any other request – this one was fun to re encode and work with the original SHN files, (which if anyone would like a copy of the Original SHN files you can PM me for those here also).
Let The River Flow.
Enjoy some early Van in his prime, this one is a killer with outstanding sound clarity.
