Sounds like mixing desk as no close up talking but could be audience.

I seem to remember a partial BBC Broadcast of this with only one Morrison track,
could be wrong.

The Rare 90s group is proud to announce the 9th volume in the Rare 90s
series: The Complete North Sea Jazz Festival – 16 JUL1995 – JVC Statenhal,
The Hague, Netherlands.

The North Sea Jazz Festival 1995 is a great FM recording usually regarded as
one of the top 10 all time Van Morrison boots, but until now the versions in
circulation have left out the first five songs played that evening because
they were never broadcast.

Recently, a master cassette (audience source) of the complete North Sea Jazz
festival 1995 was found; the intro and the first five tracks from this tape
have been painstakingly reworked to bring them up to the clarity of the FM
tracks that widely circulate, specifically: volume balancing, equalization
and normalization.

So, enjoy this special show in it’s entirety for the first time! Our thanks
to all involved, from the original unknown tapers to all those who helped
more recently with this latest Rare90s release.

a Live and Direct FM radio broadcast by “Radio2Live”, Radio2 RAI [second channel of italian national radio] from Piazza Napoleone, Lucca (Italy), on saturday 9 July 2016, 21:00 hours [CET]

this was a co-headlined show with Tom Jones, who played later, thus the early start missed from broadcast the first songs of the set (apparently .Moondance .The Way Young Lovers Do .Magic Time .Someone Like You .By His Grace .Have I Told You Lately .Whenever God Shines His Light).
At the moment, we don’t know if these tracks were recorded for a possible future rebroadcast…
WARNING: in italian radio customes the DJ speaks a lot in-between songs. And I mean a lot.. His/Her purpose is to introduce songs with bits of bio and translate what the artists say, or to describe to radio listeners what’s happening on stage. It may gets VERY annoying, and trust me it does, thus we might consider this recording ONLY FOR COMPLETISTS. But the songs, the actual music, are (usually) not spoken over in the middle of them. It has to be noted that italian djs are on the whole adviced to talk that much by the same record companies to prevent bootlegging.
there are three smalls signal droputs along the set

~ THE REVIEW from the original uploader ~

“Magic Time in Toronto”
by avalondan [who attended the shows but is not the taper]

During two powerful shows at Toronto’s Sony Centre for the Performing Arts on September 19 and 20, Sir George Ivan Morrison demonstrated his continued vitality as supreme soul-sender and improvisational marvel. I have been whining for a good year now that I thought Van had cut back considerably on his classic improvisational skills, musical dynamics and pure, unvarnished passion. There were times of brilliance, but I thought things were becoming much too routine. I chalked it up to age, and death,
and the ghosts, as poet John Berryman put it. But the Belfast Cyprus Avenue birthday gigs showed major signs of the Van performance style I have known and will always love. The afternoon show finale of Ballerina, And the Healing and Garden were terrific songs delivered with drive and beauty. The finale of Hyndford Street in the evening set summed up the day in gorgeous, dramatic style. And then on to Toronto three weeks later, where a combination of a lovely venue, a great audience, pristine sound, a performer completely committed to the cause, and a finely tuned band added up to two wonderful evenings of music. The sound of surprise as the music unfolded, the passion,
the drama were all back in full force, and a relaxed Van sang with as much authority as I have
ever heard. The set lists featured a diverse mix of Van tunes in the first half, nicely paced. The second half of the show brimmed each night with Morrison in full vocal flight, the lights of the cars on the overpass, shining like diamonds in the night, driving all night long, until the sun comes up. Burn baby Burn, you’re gonna make me high. Morrison used all of his classic imagery, nature-based and mystical. I believe there was even a reference to his young children, as he repeated over and over
“Daddy, take me down, please, to the burning ground. Daddy, take me across the river, across the water. Daddy, please.”

The shows opened with the traditional songs to warm up the pipes, merely pleasant. Then he mixed things up in the middle of the gigs, doing songs ranging from the greasy, grinding blues of Talk is Cheap and Keep Mediocrity at Bay and I Believe to My Soul,to a propulsive, sweeping version of Motherless Child, guitars strummed hard, and a wonderful, woozy In the Midnight. The All in
the Game both nights was epic, so much new revealed, despite the fact that he has sung it so often.
The way he formed the wordsinto exquisite shapes: “Make it real one more time….one more, one… one…. one… one.” “And you take my hand, and you walk with me, and sometimes it feels, like eternity.” Can it be said any better? And how much more pleasurable to hear it sung by a voice that is truly blessed. Van’s enunciation at these gigs was the best I have ever heard. The Ballerina was superb in its beauty and clarity. Both shows ended with Gloria, which the audience loved, and the great band absolutely pulverized it as Van got into his limo and took flight again…

~ Mastering Notes ~

The show is very good for internal mics. The sound does occasionally waiver and it gets quietier a few times during the show but
that is quickly corrected – the taper probably hiding the recorder. There are some minor mic bumps/muffles due to shifting but
very little talking. Overall, its a *very* nice sounding show – check out the sample. The only “editing” I performed was 1) balancing
out the channels; 2) a small bump to the overall volume (some parts were very loud and some parts were soft – they are intact);
and finally, 3) I added a *tiny* bit of warmth to the overall sound. The only setback is Gloria is cut and fades out on this
night. The good news is, this song is complete on night two and that entire show is intact and complete. I’ll be posting the
second night shortly (same taper and recorder).

Repost if you like – just keep info and file set intact. I would start disc 2 with song 11.
