Administration & Liners:
Tree administration for this tree was by the infinitely resourceful dcat. Richard Batey was again the designer of some great jewel-case liners for this show.

This is an audience recording from 27 years ago, complete with flaws. This is, however, only 1 of 2 shows from 1972 known to exist and is therefore mainly of historical/archival interest. Stunning versions of “Astral Weeks”, “He Ain’t Give You None”, and “Misty”. “He Ain’t Give You None” is given a slow blues shuffle. “Listen to the Lion” is also a definite highlight. The source of this tape is from an audience recording, so the sound quality is not as good as one would hope, but the playing is very inspired and offers an interesting perspective on the evolution of Van’s live music just before starting the Caledonia Soul Orchestra — John Plantania and Jack Schroer adding their amazing talents to the mix
