complete as per Deadlists. My CD is a copy of the CD that is going around on
BUDD and elsewhere. I edited an overlap splice at 22:15 (there were about 10
seconds of overlap on the old copy) and appended the last 12:25 of Caution
starting at 24:40 of the entire suite, which
were missing on that copy, from an old but only slightly inferior sounding tape
courtesy of Uli Teute. — H.B. 01/02

note that although this tape has circulated with this date for decades,
1/27/67 is certainly the wrong date for this recording. In fact, these versions
of Morning Dew and New Potato Caboose appear on the 10/22/67 SBD recording.

CD 1

These are songs from the studio sessions for Bang records that never became released except on unofficially released albums “T.B Sheets” and “Bang Masters”. After further research i notice that the times and takes on these song tracks do not match any of these albums either. The closest would be the “Bang Masters”.But there are some differences and that does not include cd 2 at all. Furthermore i know the first 8 tracks are in the same order of the commercially released “Blowin Your Mind” that was recorded on March 28,29 1967. Yes that album came out of these sessions but those commercially released takes are not included and do not even come close to the track times and or sound the same that is included here. Also PLEASE NOTE if you look at the original info. the setlist for CD 1 is in a different order than what is presented here. i changed the tracklist order to match the artwork and what i found when i researched these New York Sessions. The only thing that matches this (meaning having all of these tracks included) is the bootleg “Brown Eyed Beginnings” released 4-28-1998 (see below for notes). That bootleg matches thes these tracks but i can not tell how it matches in sound. i do not have that bootleg. I can tell you the “New York Sessions sounds awesome and is one of the Best early Van out there.

This the second disc contains the notorious “Contractual Obligation” session thirty-one improvised nonsense songs Morrison recorded in order to fulfill his contract with Bang Records.

CD Description
BROWN EYED BEGINNINGS is essentially THE BANG MASTERS (which includes all the songs Morrison recorded on his first solotrip into the studio with American producer Bert Berns, plus an extra disc of strange, one-minute tunes. While the first disc, which comprises the Bang sessions proper, shows Morrison to be an already-formidable progressive blues/R&B artist, the second disc demonstrates that he was also quite the willful chap, even as early as 1967. Embroiled in legal/contractual disputes with Berns over the amount of material Morrison owed Bang, the singer recorded an album’s worth of short, commercially unusable nonsense cuts. These make up disc number two of BROWN EYED BEGINNINGS, and while notable mostly for their novelty value, they are early evidence that Morrison was a man to be reckoned with.
