  1. Hi Mat,
    I’m guessing the title is indicative of another ambivalent ‘Hymns’ audience! So diffiult to understand people’s attitude to this tour, most interesting and best setlist since the Chieftains gigs in ’88 Van was clearly perplexed, judging by his remarks to the audience thru the tour.

    DAT rec too, very nice!

  2. ??? Have you read the setlist? I guess your remark is correct if you stopped listening to Van in ’77. The decade following this is unquestionably Van’s greatest period of creativity.
    In addition ‘Hymns’ is an absolute classic album, right up there with Astral, Moondance, Veedon, Poetic Champions, Into The Music etc. I ‘got it’ the first time I listened to my newly purchased vinyl copy on the day of it’s release.

    How do you top Ray Charles’ (andd Jerry Lee’s) version of ‘Can’t Stop Loving You’?
    Ask Van, or just give it another spin

    In anyu case Vanlose Stairway, Vanlose Stairway, Inarticulate Speech, Cleaning Windows, Help Me etc etc had all been staples of the live set for a decade or more.

  3. Interesting I was expecting a better vocal performance considering the date, but he actually sounds very similar to 2017 Van here.
