Received this in a trade at least 25 years ago. Not that many recordings with this setup around. A shame, as Van Morrison and The Chieftans are a good fit!
So here is the second of two recordings in my collection. I hope you enjoy them.

  1. Looking forward to hearing this! Thanks a lot for all your recent Van posts, and all of them through the years. Enjoying them all.

  2. Thanks Mat, been looking forward to this one going up. As I said b4, recordings of this magic ‘combo’ are rare and much needed. Seems the orig poster shares this view. Sure this will get a good and grateful reception at the cafe. Should have been at this gig but was away at uni and it fell in heavy duty assignment/revision time! Finally get to go now! One to grab folks.

  3. Been listening today – this is a gem, fab setlist and performance, and also very decent sound with some proper lower end/bass to it. Good venue for AUD recs the Hammy Odeon, nice warm acoustics.
