JEMS is thrilled to continue 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:


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 cassette masters. The recordings were made with low-end equipment but yielded surprisingly listenable results.

The second Shrine show is another significant performance and recording.

Vanís setlist had evolved substantially since the Troubadour gigs in June, the most interesting changes to which were the inclusion of three new songs unreleased at the time. The first, ìI Paid The Price,î only saw official release on last yearís expanded edition of Itís Too Late To Stop Now. This is one of its five known performances, all in 1973. The next is the second-known version of ìTry For Sleep,î which premiered the night before, this being one of only four known appearances. It was finally released in a studio version on 1998ís The Philosopherís Stone.

The third, ìYou Done Me Wrong,î turns out to be more special still. It remains unreleased to this day, with no known studio recording. On top of that, it would only ever be performed at this show and the previous night at the Shrine before vanishing forever and tonightís version is even more lively. It name-checks some serious villains, from the Cosa Nostra to Jesse James, against a rollicking musical backdrop. Without JFís tapes, weíd never have the chance to hear it. Some websites list ìYou Done Me Wrongî as a cover of the Ray Price tune of the same name, but Van calls it out specifically as a new song, and while it is difficult to understand his full spoken intro, he does appear to say something about it being ìa single.î Fascinating.

Beyond the new material, Van again dips heavily into blues and R&B covers as he did the night before, including Bobby ìBlueî Blandís ìAinít Nothing You Can Do,î Ray Charlesí ìHard Times,î John Lee Hookerís ìBoogie Chilleníî and Willie Dixonís ìI Just Want To Make Love To You.î The rest of the show is crowd-pleasing material, with one set list change from the previous night at the Shrine as ìMoondanceî replaces ìAnd It Stoned Me.î

So we get all the rare songs from the previous show, plus one change. If you already downloaded the first night (available here: http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=601579), do you need the second? Yes, indeed you do, as JFís notes make clear:

ìI attended this show and recorded it, although I appear to have misplaced my tape. This particular recording was done by a guy I met just two or three times. He attended one of the colleges in Claremont, CA, where I lived. At this concert he recorded a single cassette worth of music. As he told me, he was not a Van fan and was just testing out new equipment. Iíve always preferred his recording to my own (now missing in action anyway) because the sound quality is significantly better than what I was getting. When I told him how much I admired the recording, he held the cassette out to me and said, ëHere. Itís yoursí.î

The mystery taper who gave JF his master tape was indeed using better equipment and recorded in stereo, resulting in a recording that is a material upgrade to JFís own efforts from the night before, and, to the best of my knowledge, very likely the best available recording of these rare song performances. It is rich, warm and clear. Samples provided. As a bonus, the taper also recorded five minutes of the opening act, Herbie Hancock, which we have included at the top as it appears on the master cassette.

JF also provided us with with a clipping of the newspaper advertisement for the Shrine shows along with his ticket stubs. Weíve included them in the files.

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 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.

Thanks to Goody for checking the pitch. We always feel better when he has given his blessing to an important transfer. We also 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 resource for this entire series. Special shoutout to senormogul9 for helping us confirming the Herbie Hancock track. Finally, And kudos to mjk5510, who continues his yeoman duty as JEMSí post-production and quality-control supervisor. His contributions are absolutely vital in getting the music to you.

I decided to incorporate Diamonds On My Windshield and Spare Parts into a single track, despite that the back cover lists side B as tracks B1 – B5.
The condition of this vinyl bootleg was MINT when I played it back for digital transfer. There were only one or two pops, which I removed.
The exact date of this performance is unknown, but etree is claiming the date is from some point in February of 1975, so that’s what I’m going with (see link below).
Contrary to what the back cover says about the location of this recording, The Troubadour is technically located in West Hollywood, not Los Angeles.
Asylum Records released their own official compilation album entitled ‘Bounced Checks’, which does not contain anything from this recording.

Transfer (November 2009) and mastering (October 2017) by Alan Bershaw

This is a previously uncirculated soundboard direct recording of this show. It was recorded in mono onto two 10″ 1/4 track reels at 7.5ips. It is 100% complete, from John Scher’s introduction prior to the acoustic set right through to the P.A. music following the 3rd set encore. All three sets run seamlessly with nothing missing.

This was recorded surreptitiously from a monitoring feed in one of the executive offices at RCMH. This entire recording is a single source, with the lone exception of a 29 second sequence (during Althea 4:28 -> 4:57), where the reels were changed. My old friend Kieth Gatto’s audience recording (id 120537) was used to patch that song to completion.

The only other downside is that Garcia’s vocal could be brighter and louder at times. It is otherwise a very clear recording that captures everything relatively well, including a lot of stage banter between songs. You can even hear the hilarious off-mic banter between band members. I usually don’t bother tracking out the downtime, but since its not just crowd noise and at times lengthy, I did in this case.

I’ve wanted to share this recording for a long time, but a track or two was officially released and the bonus tracks on the Dead Ahead DVD are also sourced from this show, so it prevented me from sharing this at the usual places. My nephew Stu, who often shares my recordings for me, tried making a case for it being an alternate source and different mix than anything that was officially issued, but it was a no go.

I’d like nothing better than to get this to anyone who’d enjoy it, especially since only audience recordings seem to circulate, but maybe sharing it now will at least get that ball rolling. Alan – October 2007

El Paso missing. It is listed in DeadLists, however, not sure if it is truly

Mexicali is not listed for this date, but is on my source tape and is
different than the 9/30 or 10/01 versions. I am assuming it’s from this date
until proven otherwise.
