some fades out, some are cut, but it’s just an super jam !

This comes straight from the John Cipollina’s collection, i personally made a copy of his reel
and his notes….I did not touch the sound or edited anything in the trasfer, you get what
i got in first place.

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:
Van Morrison – Grugahalle Essen, Germany April 4th , 1982
1982 Rockpalast Classics Volume 4 (Manfred Analog to Digital)
