Review from Niall Connors:
This is a first-rate FM recording of the complete show (unlike Haunts of Ancient Peace and I Can’t Go On… But I’ll Go On). The “I Will Be There”, “Jackie Wilson” and “St. Dominic’s” trio are all great versions; additionally, this set features my favorite “Vanlose Stairway” and “Ballerina” boot renditions. The sound is superb: on a par with Down By Avalon and Edinburgh Castle.

Flaws
Music fades in on beginning of tracks 06, 09 & 10
applauses fades out on end of tracks 05, 08 & 09
There is a fair amount of hiss throughout and, as with most audience sources, the occasional conversation of those near the mic.

Reworked
Additional Lineage Notes by happy jack
shn > wav (reworked with nero6 and audacity) > flac level 6 (by tlh)

1)On all tracks i used nero 6 declicker settings with detection threshold at 100 % and maximum length at 3.0 ms. also used decrackle settings with detection threshold at 30 % and reduction level at 30 %. This removed some hiss without loosing any of the music,voices and natural sound.
2)On track 09 i used audacity to remove 2 pops at about 5 seconds and 6:34

Notes:
Historical Note: During Twilight Zone, at the point where the audience got very boisterous and the people near the mic began laughing, Van had hopped up on the piano. The rat-a-tat at the end of the song was Van doing a little jig/tap dance from the top of the piano.

The Felt Forum show is most certainly one of the last and best recordings made before this door closed. Did Van begin his hiatus at his peak, or was it time for a change? Perhaps he believed the latter, but in this instance, only the listener can decide. We hope you will enjoy this selection. While its sound is not quite what we grew accustomed to in the 90s, it is very fine when one considers the year 1974. More importantly, the performance it captures stands the test of time.

Additional Notes:
no where in the original info. does it pertain this recording as being the Celtic Soul Productions Volume 3 which was a 2 disc set. The second disc was of exclusive photographs taken at the Felt Forum show. That second disc included 17 color photographs, in three size variations, all neatly presented on a data-only disc which i did not receive. So i do not know how this compares to that specific recording.

This is a Fantastic Recording and Show. Don’t let the flaws scare you

Source Notes
This is the VLS Version of the Van Morrison Winterland Show, it is not an upgrade or a remaster. It represents an audio cleaning of the original VHS files that were converted to DVD LPCM sound files and then tweaked with Audiology and Roxio Sound Wave to give the sound a much richer audio. You must remember the source and also take this for what it is on face value, a good update of an early Van classic performance. This VLS version also includes some songs that were not available on the original CDR versions of this show
