Review from original uploader:
The source for this 2 CD bootleg CD is an audience recording, rather than a soundboard, and the sound quality should be judged accordingly. It’s about average (although I’ve heard far worse bootleg material) with a definite “speakerish” quality to the vocals. So while it is not in the “top 5 Van boots” category, it does document an important series of concerts.

One thought on “Lossless Bootleg Bonanza: Van Morrison – Way Up the Avenue

  1. looks familiar, maybe because the recording and distribution of the Van sets was so haphazard relative to those of Bob’s sets, just aren’t that many really good ones goin’ around. Good qual from memory, you certainly need it
