THE JF BACKSTORY

JEMS loves a vintage taper series and we’re pleased to offer another one, this time from the archive of our friend JF, who taped in and around Southern California in the ’70s and Boston in the ’80s. He frequented smaller venues, like the Troubadour and the Roxy, leaving arenas to others and leaning more towards the folksier, jazzier and eclectic sides of rock.

Most of his ’70s tapes were made on what I would describe as the kind of large, rectangular, portable, C-cel powered cassette recorder that my family and surely many others had in the ’70s, either a Panasonic or a Sony. While I used ours to record myself, my friends and my sister around the house, the teenage JF figured: Why not try taking it into concerts?

I only learned what recorder JF used after I had heard some of his tapes and I have to say I was mildly shocked. Given the gear, his tapes are remarkably clear for the era. And make no mistake, this was an early era for audience recording, part of the first wave spurred on by of the vinyl bootleg revolution.

For further details and backstory on JF, his tapes and the extraordinary lost Van performances from 1975 that started the series, please refer to the notes in Vol. Three:

http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=524853

JONI IN ANAHEIM

The JF Archive series resumes with what we believe to be a previously uncirculated Joni Mitchell performance on her well regarded 1974 tour backed by Tom Scott and the L.A. Express. The tour was notable as her first to explore more of a jazz direction compared to her folk-rock beginnings.

You can find the poster for the show, the ticket, photos and a nice contemporary review here:
http://jonimitchell.com/chronology/detail.cfm?id=1365

Itís a lively set featuring a very talkative Joni. The sound quality isn’t up to the level of the best audience tapes of the tour (among them JEMS’ Seattle 3/13/74 master found here http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=318981), but in all, this a lovely performance and another one of those ìyou are thereî recordings, despite the lo-fi gear. Samples provided.

JF did an excellent job capturing the complete performance with no noticeable cuts in the music, Joni’s between song dialogue and stories come through loud and clear.

Though originally recorded on cassette, JF’s Joni recording was transferred from reel-to-reel. That’s because JF, due to tight budgets at the time (he was barely out of high school), routinely transferred his master tapes to reels in order to save tape/money. Because he recorded his masters in mono, he would dub the finished recording onto a single track of a reel, allowing him to fit four or more shows on one 7″ tape and reuse the cassette for the next show. That wasn’t true in all instances, but it is for most. And yes, in hindsight, he is still kicking himself about it. And yet, based on the tapes we’ve transferred so far, JF did a fine job dubbing off his masters, and the Joni reel doesn’t sound any worse for wear despite the one-generation loss.

Once again, we must express our gratitude to JF, who reached out on DIME (you could be next!) and offered us his archive, which had been sitting in boxes, 6000 miles away from where he lives today, for 20+ years. Like so many early tapers, he had great stories to tell and the memories flooded back as we sorted through tapes. We are pleased to be able to bring his work to all of you. Please let him know through your comments that you are, too.

Lastly, as always, special thanks to mjk5510, who continues his critical duty as JEMS’ post-production and quality-control supervisor. His contributions are essential in getting the music to you.

Notes from the original uploader:
This concert has also been released under the name Can You Feel the Silence…, with minor differences in the track timings.

Notes from Jan Seijbel and Guenter Becker:
The concert which this boot was taken from was originally broadcast on German TV as part of the Rockpalast series, recorded in the Gruga Halle in Essen.

Some sources mistakenly show the date of this show as April 3, for the following reason: the Rockpalast Night, where this show was taken from, started on April 3, around 23:00 MEZ with Rick James. Van played the second set and this was around 01:00 MEZ on April, 4. There was also a rehearsal for this show the week before, but to date there has been no word of a circulating tape from this rehearsal.

A Wolf Remaster

Date and Program Notes: Rolf Wolf

Televised as a Rockpalast Special:
The correct date for the Van Morrison show is Sunday April 4th, 1982.
The Rockpalast Night – where this show was taken from started on April 3rd around 11:00 pm with Rick James.
Van Morrison played the 2nd Set and this was around 1:00 am on April 4th, 1982.
Therefore the date of the actual show started on April 3rd (in the late evening) and ended on April 4th, the late show,
(in the early morning).

The broadcast date was the following evening April 4th, 1982.
Most of the Rockpalast shows are broadcast the date following the actual show.
Hence the show was played over the 3rd and 4th of April 1982.
It was broadcast live across Europe on April 4th, 1982 later that evening.
This is why this show sometimes circulates as April 3rd , 1982.

Rolf Wolf’s Remaster Notes:
My friend Manfred startet in the end of the last year to transfer some of his old analog Rockpalast Recordings on hard disc.
He used for the transfer a Professional Studer 807,
Nakamichi HiCom II and a Terratec EWX 24/96 Soundcard for A/D Converting in Very High 24bit Quality.
He Burned this (very big) 24bit WAV on a DVD-R and sent it to me.

So we had made all the digital steps in 24 Bit and Dithering only One Time in 16bit.
My part was a (small part), Sound Optimizing, Fade Ins/Outs, to Fixed Trackmarker and Dithering in 16bit/44.1KHz.
Software of cource the good old WavLab and for Dithering the Apogee UV22HR PlugIn.

This Van Morrison show was recorded from FM with a Revox Reel and a Revox Tuner in April of 1982.
The Sound Quality is Very Good.
This show is one of my Favorite Van Morrison Shows of all Time.

Especially “Summertime In England” is in my opinion the Best Version I’ve ever heard.
I had this show a few years ago Remastered.
But by this time Manfred had now made much better Anaglog Equipment,
and so we had to try to make a better Sound Quality in 24 Bit, (Glad we Did)

Rolf Wolf: PLEASE NOTE
This was Recorded and Remastered in the Orignal 24 bit wav.
When all was done – it was at the end of the process (the last step).
Then it was Dithered to 16 Bit and Compressed to SHN, ready to share.
So this will Burn to Disc properly with No Problems if you want it to.

Rolf Wolf: ALSO NOTE
These SHN files DO NOT have all the loud pops on track 15 between the 1:00 minute thru 2:00 minute mark.
These are present on all other Van Morrison Essen, April 4th, 1982 Bootlegs that circulate.

This show is also known to circulate in other Bootleg versions such as
“Live In Essen” by Golden Stars (GSCD-1105, released 1990)
and
“Can You Feel The Silence” by Great Dane (GDR 8919)

JEMS is thrilled to return to the JF Archive series, presenting another one of the nine Van Morrison performances recorded in and around Southern California circa 1973-74. For further details and backstory on JF, his tapes and the extraordinary lost Van performances from 1975 that started the series, please refer to the notes in Vol. Three:

http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=524853

Unlike the initial Lost California tapes, JFís 1973-74 recordings have long been in circulation among collectors. However, this series marks the first-ever digitization and dissemination directly from JFís cassette masters. The recordings were made with low-end equipment but yielded surprisingly listenable results.

The San Diego show is yet another significant performance and recording and happens to be one of JFís favorites as youíre about to read.

JF writes:
The next night after San Bernardino, Van traveled down to San Diego and we followed him. This was a period when he was really playing a lot in California. He said it perfectly in “I’ve Been Working” (recorded well before these shows, of course):

I been up the thruway,
Down the thruway
Up the thruway, down the thruway
Up the thruway, down, up down, back
Up again

There may never have been a greater time or place for Van fans. In particular, this San Diego show has always been one of my favorite memories. Likely still smarting over the horrible sound system and PA issues the night before in San Bernardino, at one point this night Van seemed to lose interest. He just up and walked off the stage, leaving the band to jam in his absence. In real time, it seemed like he left for 20 minutes, although of course it was shorter than that. But still, Iím pretty sure I remember one of the musicians leaving the stage, too, after awhile, presumably in an effort to get Van to come back out. Which he did eventually and carried on in great form.

The San Diego incident, along with another I witnessed at a concert in Anaheim nearly a year later (11/16/74, coming up later in our series), give me license to have my say about a lot of nonsense that has been written over the years about Vanís temperament and the so-called ìunevenî quality of his performances. Van may not do what you expect him to do. He may not do what anybody else does. He may do exactly what young performers are taught NOT to do in schools and conservatories. But he always engages his muse, no matter how rough or how unorthodox his method may be. That is what I love Van Morrison for.

***

San Diego repeats the same set list as San Bernardino save for one major change, the last known performance of Ray Charlesí “Hard Times” until its momentary resurrection for two appearances in Leipzig in 2002. The song debuted at the Shrine shows earlier in the month. This is also the second to last performance ever of John Lee Hookerís ìBoogie Chilleníî (or as some call it, ìHarmonica Boogie Chilleníî). Van would play it in Montreux the following year then never again.

Despite taking place in a large sports arena, the sound quality is much improved. In fact, given JFís gear and the venue, it is a pretty impressive capture for 1973. A bit distant, but rich and clear with little-to-no audience interference. Samples provided.

Like the preceding shows, Van is mixing recent material, covers and classics. The show begins with two unknown instrumental numbers (if you can identify the tunes, please do let us know) which lead to an instrumental ìMoondanceî intro before someones say, ìAnd now ladies and gentleman, here is Van Morrison,î at which point ìMoondanceî stops and the band immediately launches into ìCome Running.î

ìCome Runningî sets the pace for a lively and largely up-tempo set. As at all the late í73 shows, Van again dips heavily into blues and R&B covers, including ìAinít Nothiní You Can Do,î made famous by Bobby ìBlueî Bland and penned by Don Robey and Joe Scott; the aforementioned ìBoogie Chilleníî and ìHard Timesî; along with Willie Dixonís ìI Just Want To Make Love To You.î The rest of the show is loaded with crowd-pleasing material, including ìInto the Mystic,î ìDomino,î ìCaravan,î ìCypress Avenue,î ìHere Comes The Nightî and ìGloria.î

Once again, our gratitude goes to JF, who reached out on DIME (you should be next!) and offered us his archive, which had been sitting in boxes for over 20 years, 6000 miles away from where he lives today. Like so many early tapers, he had great stories to tell and the memories flooded back as we sorted through tapes. We are pleased to be able to bring his work to all of you. Please let him know through your comments that you are, too. We also appreciate the unnamed Van collectors who helped get JFís masters back in his control. JF was also kind enough to include scans of his ticket stubs for this show which are included in the artwork.

We want to acknowledge the value and work of http://ivan.vanomatic.de, the definitive Van Morrison setlist archive on the web. It has been a constant reference tool for this entire series. Of course kudos as well to mjk5510, who continues his essential role as JEMSí post-production and quality-control supervisor. He is as much a part of JEMS at this point as I am.
