Bob’s Boots review: The quality of this CD is well below average by today’s standards, but for a 1965 audience recording, it’s not bad at all. Get over the low fidelity buried sound, and you’ll be rewarded with a gem whose historical value cannot be overstated. It’s a great performance, to start with. Very unlike the raw power that was to follow in the coming year.. but just as good in it’s own rights. Consider it being the only recording of any substance of Dylan & The Hawks (The Band) of that year,… consider that it contains the only know version of the title track,… consider that some of the arrangements are like no other known recording, …. and this CD becomes a masterpiece.

It also contains two bonus tracks from Van’s 4/29/96 Supper Club show, a week earlier, from an excellent digital audience recording.

* the broadcast starts half way through “Passionate kisses”

** there were two nasty and long drop outs on the radio broadcast (32 seconds during “Pineola” and 30 secs right after “Steal your love”) thus I had to apply some fadings to leave out those unexpected moments of silence. Hopefully a subsequent broadcast will be clean.

After two glorious months of them not counting my internet service provider has finally started counting my bandwidth again. If you will recall I get very limited access during the day but post midnight it frees up. I’ve also noticed that when I try to upload a bunch of shows after midnight things tend to screw up after a few hundred megs. I’ll continue to do my best but likely posts will slow down once again. Worry not friends, there is still lots of music to go around.

This was released as a vinyl and a CD bootleg on the Skeleton Songs label. Itís a very nice audience recording that Iíd grade a B+ in sound quality. A complete version of this show is known to exist; if you have it, share it. Thanks!

From Mat: I spent much of the weekend going through Guitars101 and some other blogs downloading all the Van Morrison shows I could get my hands on.  Awesome stuff but a lot of it was MP3 which means you’ll see much of it here over the next few weeks/months/years (it was a lot of shows.)

Uploader notes: Known jokingly here in the local area as “The Never Ending Concert”, due to the enormous time the Dead took between tracks tuning up. In fact, your humble seeder (me, that is!) took the time to seperate the tuneups from the showpieces themselves. This is so you can just burn the music if you desire. The recording is mostly intact, with a couple of cuts due to tape flips. Taped off the air live as it happened,
