Stage Banter by Tom Pratt.

A good soundboard with some slight hiss.

This is a great show from the second leg of the Who’s Next 1971 US tour. The performance is probably one of the best of the year, the stage banter is silly as usual and the sound is pretty good. Not perfect for a soundboard recording but Who soundboards from this era are very rare so this one is worth checking out.

These are solo acoustic references made with lyricist John Barlow, recorded at Bob’s Marin home during Fall of 1971. Sourced from pre-FM production CD made by David Gans for one of his KPFA Dead Marathon pledge drives a few years ago. Some of Weir’s most beloved songs in their embryonic stage. “C Shuffle” is an early development of “Walk In The Sunshine.” The unknown song is nice and is unique to these reference recordings.

I spent the last ten days or so at the in-laws. It was a nice visit but I’m glad to be home. Because of the Grateful Dead ripping project I was able to upload a bunch of shows before I left and WordPress allowed me to post them ahead of time in a schedule so that shows got posted every day even if I wasn’t paying any attention. That is a great feature though it does throw me off as people start commenting on shows I forgot were being posted.

Anyways this will continue to happen for a week or so and they will continue to use Mega. However as I am home now I will start uploading new shows and posting them. I’m gonna start running through the suggested file hosting sites. Probably I’ll use one for a couple of days to try it out and then use another and another going through the list comparing the good and bad. Please do let me know how they work as downloaders. Hopefully we can make the best decision for us all.

FM Broadcast on KSAN

This show comes with a slight explanation and a mystery. Whenever I blog a show I move it to a separate folder on my hard drive so that I don’t accidentally reblog it. When I moved this one I noticed that there was already a show in the blogged folder under this date labeled “Into the Mystic Bootleg.” They were all MP3s, not FLAC and while they mostly matched these FLACs they included several extra songs. Consulting Etree I find that their setlist matches my FLAC listing and not the MP3s. Even weirder is that I cannot find where I ever blogged the MP3s, though admittedly that just might be my poor googling skills.

Several of you are bigger Van fans than me and I’m gonna ask you if you know the difference between these sets or if you know where this “Into the Mystic Bootleg” comes from. I’m including the setlist to that one below. Please note that none of the music nor information from the notes below this sentence are actually included in the downloads.

17 – Caledonia Soul Music (Bonus Rare Track) 16mins

Recorded live at Pacific High Studios, Marin, CA, September 5, 1971. Soundboard

Notes from Ron_Wyly@cofo.edu:
I believe “Caledonia Soul Music” is not live but a studio outtake. The playing time of the
song is listed on this CD as 16:21. For years I’ve had a vinyl bootleg called Van the
Man (note: not the bootleg CD of the same name) which also has “Caledonia Soul
Music” on it, but its playing time is a little over 18 minutes. It’s clearly the same
performance on both the CD and the vinyl, but the CD version, besides having better
sound, does sound “speeded up” compared to the vinyl boot. Does anyone know which
recording might be the one that’s the accurate speed?

By the way, new Van fans will eventually want to hear this track; it’s not much like
anything else Van has ever done, being a 16-18 minute tune that’s mostly an
instrumental. It never gets dull and also shows Van-and-band’s talent for shifts in
dynamics (fast/slow; loud/soft) within the same performance. I hope the tune is officially
released someday, maybe as part of the boxed set.

Musicians: (not yet available)

Notes from Russell Parkinson:
The Pacific High Studios material has been frequently booted. It is reviewed in full in the
Discography entry for The Inner Mystic. The material also appears (in whole or in
part) on a number of other boots, including Fridays Child, I’ve Been Working,
Moonshine Whiskey, This is Van Morrison, Desert Land, Wild Night in
California, and the vinyl Van the Man. Check the other Discography entries for
additional details on a specific bootleg.

What the Critics Say
The majority of this two-CD bootleg (17 of the total 29 tracks) comes from a radio broadcast of a Van Morrison performance at Pacific High Recording Studio on September 11, 1971. This material has shown up piecemeal on numerous bootlegs dating back to the pre-CD era, but this particular one offers it in its most complete form. Whether or not you usually collect unofficial recordings, this concert really is essential listening for the committed Van Morrison fan. The band plays well, Van’s singing is magnificent, and the songs include not only favorites like “Domino,” “Blue Money,” and “Tupelo Honey,” but also unexpected covers like “Just Like a Woman” (one of the best Bob Dylan interpretations ever), “Buena Sera, Senorita,” and “Hound Dog,” as well as a flashback to his Them days with “Friday’s Child.” Unlike even many excellent bootlegs, this could fit in smoothly as a highlight of Morrison’s official discography — it’s that good (and that well-recorded). Unfortunately, the quality of this particular bootleg is diluted by the final dozen tracks on disc two, taken from an audience recording of a show at Inn at the Beginning in Cotati, California on May 14, 1971. While the fidelity is actually above-average for an audience recording of the era, it’s certainly not near official standards, and unfortunately, Morrison’s vocals are among the elements that are not captured with total clarity. For very serious (as opposed to simply committed) Morrison fans, however, it’s worthwhile listening, as again the band and vocal performances are good. Too, this show likewise mixed some big faves (“Blue Money,” “Domino,” “And It Stoned Me”) with some unpredictable numbers (“He Ain’t Give You None” and covers of “Jambalaya,” “Rock Me Baby,” and “Bring It on Home to Me”), along with some relatively obscure originals like “I Wanna Roo You.” There’s also a version of Them’s “Mystic Eyes,” though unfortunately it sounds like a pretty improvised off-the-cuff one with just harmonica, vocal, and guitar. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi

by J.P. Ollio
Van Morrison’s live concert at the Pacific High Studio in 1971 has turned up on numerous bootlegs, most notably the Van the Man LP. The two-disc Into the Mystic boasts clear sound, a killer set list, and one essential bonus track. Always an erratic live performer, Morrison appears relaxed on this set, belting out early R&B classics and songs from his initial Warner Brothers records. A cover of “Hound Dog” opens with Morrison reciting the lyrics to “Que Sera Sera.” Later, he introduces Dylan’s “Just Like a Woman” as “a rendition of somebody else’s tune.” The concert’s apex is a riveting performance of Them’s “Friday’s Child” — piano and guitar build to a crescendo at each refrain while the rhythm section pounds away. The CD’s final cut is a long instrumental piece entitled “Caledonia Soul Music.” An outtake from the His Band and Street Choir sessions, this winding 16-minute track may be reason enough to seek out this disc, a truly transcendent recording. Fans of Morrison should put Into the Mystic at the top of their wish lists.
