Source 1: No LB Number

From the original uploader:
From an old DAT (received in trade, 1997-05-23). This is probably from the same source as one of the LB tapes, but I haven’t heard them so just guessing….

TRANSFER DATE: 2016-10-26

WHAT I DID: DAT > WAV > Sound Forge (split into tracks) > FLAC > MP3tag (tagging)

WHAT I DID NOT DO: resample the files (they remain @ 48 khz, just as on the original DAT, so you will have to convert them yourself in order to burn to CD).

All thanks to the original taper, and to the person who sent me the DAT.

Source 2: LB-4412

Source: Audience recording > OKM II Rockversion > Sony DAT TCD-D7 > DAT master > Tascam DA-40 Professional > WaveTerminal > WAV > WaveLab 6 > FLAC. Taped by Bach. LB-4412

My part:

FLAC (LB-4412 obtained from the Insarah’s 2007 download) > TLH > WAV (16/48) > Adobe Audition 1.5 > WAV (16/44) > TLH > FLAC(level 8).

Which makes it LB-xxxx until jokerman.org.uk decides otherwise. Same source, but now suitable for burning to CD-R.

Notes from the original torrentor:

This is something truly special for Van Morrison fans. 45 minutes of the Belfast Cowboy performing solo on acoustic guitar in an Irish television station studio. The show was called Talk About Pop, and Van’s appearance included an interview with host Tony Johnson and Donall Corvin (which can be read here).

It was recorded on November 2, 1973 and aired a week later on November 9, 1973. Included among Van’s song choices are three that are known only among serious collectors: “I Shall Sing”, “Wild Side Of Life” (sometimes known as “Honky Tonk Angels”), and the ridiculously rare “Drumshambo Hustle”, a song bemoaning the business aspect of the music industry.
About 10 years ago I received a cassette tape of this performance from an old-time Van Morrison fan & collector from Belfast. As a serious collector, I had previously heard a portion of this set (about 20 minutes worth), but when I played this tape and found that there were additional songs that I hadn’t heard before, and in stunningly great sound quality, I was thrilled. Unfortunately, the interview segments were edited out, and the ending “piano intro” snippet hints that there may have been more of the show with Van on piano. There also appears a tape anomaly 20 seconds into “Wild Side Of Life”. These flaws aside, I think any Van Morrison fan and/or collector will be amazed at what they hear, as this tape represents the most complete, best sounding copy of this show I’ve heard. Enjoy!

Notes (thanks to setlist.com and to the Van Morrison Website)

The Rainbow Theatre show was first broadcasted by the BBC2 as part of the Old Grey Whistle Test on the 27 may 1974. It was aired simultaneously on stereo FM radio and on mono TV. This was one of the earliest stereo radio broadcasts, and the first simultaneous TV/radio broadcast of a “rock” concert.
It was repeated on the 9 oct 1980 on BBC2 as well. ALL the previous copies that are in circulation (known as “Over The Rainbow” and “Under The Rainbow”) are from the 1980 rebroadcast.

“Over the Rainbow” is a bad quality stereo recording (according to the Hayward website : [Over the Rainbow] sounds as though it could’ve been taken straight from a notoriously bad-sounding LP). “Under the Rainbow” is better, but it’s mono.

What’s more, they are very incomplete. “Warm Love” was only aired on the initial BBC 1974 broadcast and dropped after that from future broadcasts. “Wild Night”, “I Paid the price”, “Saint Dominic’s Preview” and “Gloria” have never been broadcasted on BBC but only on a 1980 Dutch broadcast (WN) or on a 1974 Irish broadcast by RTE (IPTP, SDP, G). Hence, those 5 tracks seldom (or never) circulated before.

Same issues with the videos/DVDs previously circulating : they all come from the 1980 repeat, have a medium to very bad image and sound quality, and all are mono.

SAW did a fantastic work in researching and finding good recordings of both the original 1974 video and stereo radio broadcasts.
The rare “lost” tracks were unearthed from Harm’s archives. Their sound quality is much lower than the other sources, that’s why they are given as “bonus”.

The challenge was then to remaster the sound from old audio tape sources (first generation from stereo off-air, but recorded onto low grade cassettes as most people did at the time) and to synchronise it to the video that originaly had a bad mono sound. Of course, the audio tape had a dramaticaly bad pitch and a very irregular speed, so it had to be adjusted every 30 seconds. I now know what purgatory looks like.
The incomplete “Wild Night” video that came separated was then merged to the BBC source, without cutting the end of the song as it originaly was.

So here it is for you : the most complete and best quality (untill we find a reel-to-reel recording, or Van releases it) package of both the video and audio versions, in full stereo.

Enjoy it !

This Capture:
BBC 2 TV Edited Broadcast (Can’t Confirm Date)

Although this Capture is Mono the sound is far superior to the circulating Stereo (and Mono)
copies, much more solid and clean.

The first Broadcast was an Early Simulcast and the balance was pretty rough and off centre as
can be heard on Van Morrison For Radio set. I recorded that myself and scrapped the result.
