RIVERSIDE, LATE SET
The 11 pm setlist at Webber Hall brings some welcome changes from the early set. The wonderful ìSt Dominicís Previewî mixed with ìWalk on the Wild Sideî and ìYou Canít Always Get What You Wantî returns, and we also get the first ë75 tour recording of ìBlue Money.î Released on His Band And The Street Choir, ìBlue Money,î is a relative rarity, with only 18 known performances prior to this one according to the authoritative set-list histories found at vanomatic.de.

But even more exciting is the first known live version of ìI Have Finally Come To Realize,î a song recorded at the Record Plant in Sausalito within days or weeks of this show, but not released officially until 1998ís The Philosopherís Stone. Van introduces it by saying heíd ìlike to do a recent songî and delivers a wonderful reading. There are only ten known performance of the track, all from 1998 and 2002, so JFís recording is indeed a major find.

Happily, the high quality of the early Riverside recording carries over to the late show which sounds every bit as good. Samples provided.

Once again the band is: John Blakely on guitar; Mark T. Jordan on keyboards; David Hayes on Bass; and Tony Dey on drums.

Hereís what JF recalls about the Riverside shows:

ìThis was the fourth show in a mini-Van marathon ñ two shows the previous night in Irvine, the second of two this night in Riverside and one more on the afternoon of the following day in Santa Barbara. There were no seats here ñ people just gathered around the stage on the floor of the college basketball stadium and danced or just hung out and listened. I stood back by the sound booth in the center of the hall, warily eyeing Vanís sound people so they wouldnít catch me recording and secretly wishing I could tap into their line feed from the stage.î

Thanks to JF, who reached out on DIME (you could be next!) and offered us his archive, which had been sitting in boxes, 6000 miles away from where he lives today, for 20+ years. Like so many early tapers, he had great stories to tell and the memories flooded back as we sorted through tapes. We are pleased to be able to bring his work to all of you. Please let him know through your comments that you are, too.

We also appreciate the unnamed Van collectors for helping to get JFís masters back in his control. And finally, special thanks mjk5510, who continues serve as JEMSí post-production and quality-control supervisor. He is essential to our process and we couldnít do it without him.

Notes/Comments:
– It is not clear if this is the whole show.
– This might fall into the “for completists only” category.
All tunes clip in, there are significant level fluctuations
throughout, and the recording is somewhat muffled. But this
is far from the worst aud out there, and at times is pretty
good.
