Well initial thoughts walking out of the Pavilion were that it was a great show,not as good as Brighton but still great. However I have now listened to it half a dozen times and I have changed my mind, this was awesome but on a different level to Brighton, there it was party time but here in Bournemouth it was a more serious show.We should have known, Enlightment played, No brass joke in Fair Play, These Dreams and a Talk is Cheap and then it came, The band started All in the game moved to, you know what they’re writing about and Van centre stage with hand held mic , moved the mic stand out of the way, moved the music stand with lyrics out of the way, turned it to the audience, and then he told us about what really counted,Listen to the Lion, No Safety net is needed or ever has been, the band played on, garden,st james and then help me, Van starting it on sax not harp, it was nearly over just a Gloria to go but no ,he comes back, the Chords of Gloria dont start but instead the organ starts with the opening to Tupelo Honey, Van straps on his Les Paul and treats us to a couple of guitar solos,into Gloria and end.This was no ordinary show , this was extraordinary.

Thank you Van for a wonderful weekend, I hope my recordings did the shows some justice.

Nothing has been done to the File except trimming the rubbish at the beginning and end and a fade in and out added, and of course splitting the tracks, no volume adjustments have been made so you may find it quiet,but thats what the big dial on your Hi-Fi marked volume is for. Do what you want with it now, after all I nicked it off Van, If you master it and improve it please repost as id love to hear it.

  1. Thanks a lot for a hot-off-the-presses new Van, Mat! Many cheers!

    By the way – is FreeMorrison still planning to post to your site? Just a shout-out from a fan of your posts also, FM – cheers!

  2. Thanks for this Van post. Looking forward to hearing this one, especially after seeing the taper’s comment that this was a more “serious” show. Also agree with the comment above about seeing future posts from FreeMorrison.


  3. I’ve got a couple of other shows from the same tour that I’ll post sometime soon.

    I don’t know where FM or Raoul are at the moment. They haven’t said anything about splitting so I’m assuming they got busy with end of semester stuff or work or life. I hope they come back soon too.
