  1. Yes, it was to be included – but was cut from the recording, and the message left behind in the Info and Setlist – “LACKING”.

    Therefore a transfer error must have messed up this track as Van did play the song, as a way to preserve the original live set-list I added “Marie’s Wedding” from the same year 1988.

    (Also found oddly enough as track #10 on Van Morrison’s Bootleg CD – Dark Night of The Soul – 1988).

    The actual recording date and venue of the song is :
    Ulster Hall, Belfast 1988 September 15th.

    Just a few months after the Fife Aid Concert.

    I know, for the Purist, it’s best not to mess with the tracks – add or delete anything – the downloader can delete the track if one chooses too and all will be right with the world again.

    Or

    The downloader can listen and leave the track and all will be right with the world again.

    Aghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    Delete, Delete, Delete, ,,,,,,,,,,,,, Doh!
    LOL

  2. Oh – thanks “IntheGarden” for pointing out that I needed to edit that out – it was not “Dark Shades of The Soul.”

    BUT,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
    Van Morrison’s Bootleg CD – Dark Night of The Soul

    Dark Night, Dark Shade, it’s all very confusing for me at some point, by the by I finally have gotten my hands on the real deal Flac version of DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL, which every one knows is an absolute freaking mind blower CD.

    Mr. “IntheGarden” what request might you have for a Van Morrison show you would like to see shared here at The Midnight Cafe?

    You certainly have earned the right to ask for anything – Much Respect for always helping others here with your advanced knowledge of Van and other topics.

  3. “a transfer error must have messed up this track as Van did play the song”

    He did play the song at Fife Aid but for whatever reason, It was never included on this particular recording in the first place.

    Incidentally, it’s actually DARK KNIGHT OF THE SOUL

  4. Doh!
    Dark Knight Of The Soul with a K in the Night – like this :
    Knight!
    Doh!

    Oh – Yes – FILESWAP is undergoing maintenance right now, so I am uploading a backup to PUT LOCKER and will have a new link on the morrow.
    FILESWAP will be ready in about an hour – they do this every night in the wee hours.
    Hang On Ben – The best is yet to come.

  5. Thanks for this great show. Hard to find shows where Van plays Someone Like You. That’s my wife and I’s wedding song. Really appreciate finding a quality live version!

  6. Thanks for this FM – great sound, and the setlist concentrates on one of my very fave Van albums, the one nobody talks about (“Poetic Champions Compose”) much. Wonderful stuff!!
