Excellent audience recording; lineage unavailable

Comments from the original uploader: During this period, Georgie Fame — on Hammond Organ and backing vocals –was a tremendously influential presence in Van Morrison’s band; however, Georgie Was not present for this particular show. As a result, the timbre of this show is different, and perhaps owing to Georgie’s absence, the band stretches itself. Additionally, James Hunter
is on hand, and Van is in — by his standards — a garrulous mood.

  1. This looks reeeal nice, thanks Mat!

    Yet to hear any of the shows with James Hunter. I remember
    his debut LP well, “People Gonna Talk”. Not earth shattering
    perhaps, but very enjoyable. He has a great voice.

  2. Yeah, I’m a big Heads fan and he’s got some great stuff
    in that dept.
    This Van could well be a very worthwhile grab… first to try
    it pls report back !

  3. sorry. forgot actually grabbed part 1 of the ’78 last night – you’ll definitely want it – crisp and dynamic. All his FMs seem to be EX, grabbed the Nils the other day, realy good also.

  4. Big news on the 78 then, sounds like a good upgrade.

    And Belfast, 88, in FM quality – sounds good, that had
    definitely passed me by.
    What else stands out from that list do you think?

  5. Tony I believe thay are all AUDs

    I’m starting with the 80s shows, particularly the 86 87 No Guru_Poetic Champions era
