Our good friend FreeMorrison uploaded this show previously as a bootleg named “It Aint Why, It Just Is.” This is essentially the same bootleg, just named differently with different artwork and there may have been some different remastering of it by different fans. Normally I wouldn’t even bother with it, but FreeMorrison only had the MP3 at 256 to share and this is the lossless with an MP3@320 conversion done by me so I figure that’s an upgrade.

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.

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”.
