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)

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)
“Can You Feel The Silence” by Great Dane (GDR 8919)

There is only one Rolf Wolf Remaster from the Original SHN Files:

JF Archive Series Vol. 23 via JEMS

Taper: JF

Source: unknown recorder > unknown microphone (mono)

JEMS 2015 Transfer: JF master cassette > Nakamichi CR-7A (azimuth adjustment) > Sound Devices USBPre 2 > Audacity 2.0 capture > iZotope RX7 and Ozone 6 > iZotope RX MBIT+ resample 16/44.1 > Peak Pro XT (edit / index) > xACT 2.21 > FLAC

JEMS is thrilled to resume the JF Archive series, this time presenting nine Van Morrison performances recorded in and around Southern California by JF circa 1973-74.

Unlike the previous Lost California series covering uncirculated recordings from 1975, JF’s 1973-74 recordings have long been in circulation among collectors. However, this series marks the first-ever digitization and dissemination directly from his cassette masters.

The 5/27/73 late show was the final set in a memorable four-day run at the Troubadour. Several of the shows Van did in May-June of 1973 with the Caledonia Soul Orchestra were recorded and would later form the basis for the fantastic live album It’s Too Late To Stop Now. To his credit, Van changed up the set list with some frequency throughout the run, which meant many songs are not represented on the official document. Several of those were picked up by the expanded reissue of the live album, but there are still several performances from this set not found there.

In all, this a lovely performance and another one of those appealing “you are there” recordings, despite the lo-fi gear. Samples provided.

Here are JF’s reflections of the show:

I remember very few specifics about the second Van Morrison show of my life, beyond the music, that is. What I do remember is being in a kind of Morrison-swoon all three days after that first one. I had never seen a performer like that before and nothing that could come close to matching his band. And all in the tiny space of the Troubadour.

I would like to point out that the supporting act for the two Troubadour shows I attended was Jackie DeShannon. I have always been grateful to Van for widening my musical horizons, not only by the huge range of music he played, but by the musicians he invited to play with him. His concerts almost always got me listening to great music I might not have been exposed to as early as I was with his help.

Part of this recording filled out the “A Spawn of the Dublin Pubs” bootleg album.

Enjoy this master recording for what it is: a rare document of a great artist at work. Do not sell it! I made this recording but it does NOT belong to me. The music was made by Van Morrison and it belongs to anyone who wishes to hear it.


Once again, our gratitude goes 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.

We also appreciate the unnamed Van collectors who helped get JF’s masters back in his control. Special thanks mjk5510, who continues his vital duty as JEMS’ post-production and quality-control supervisor. Lastly, thanks to Mat at Midnight Cafe for his interest in JF’s Van Morrison recordings and in JEMS. We thought it would be fun for this show to debut on his site.
