recorded by fvtassel with miniature cardioid microphenes

This recording was first uploaded by fvtassel 05/14 but almost directly banned because it was not tracked and presented as one flac file. I was one of the lucky ones who captured it.

The original file DSCS080322356.flac was tracked with Audacity 2.0.5, md5 and ffp with TLH added. I included the original info.txt but omitted a photograph of Bob as it was not related to this concert.

Thanks to fvtassel allowing me to upload the tracked version and giving some additional info.

In 2008 Wilco did a run in Chicago where they played every song they had officially released plus a few extras like some of the stuff they did with Billy Bragg on the Mermaid Avenue sessions. Pretty much every night was epic with them playing about 30 songs a show. I posted the run in a low quality MP3 format ages ago, but it got deleted by Mediafire or whatever. Thanks to the Owl and Bear I now have the entire run in FLAC format (which I’ve also converted into high quality MP3s.) There are also multiple sources for each show and I’ll be posting those as well. I decided to put the various sources into one post with notes on their details.

I’m also going to comment on which source I think is better for each show, but with the caveat that I haven’t had time to listen to every note from every show and every source. My judgment will come from a few tracks through my computer speakers. Your mileage may very. I will however include one song in MP3 format to download as a way for you all to listen and make your own choices.

The 2nd Night Show is just as awesome! These 2 nights in Spain June 21st and the 22nd 2008 with Van Morrison are just incredible bootlegs and remain one of my many favorites.

The Home Page of  The Van Morrison Soundboard recordings By Eberhard Fritz
This show is listed as a SOUNDBOARD RECORDING Bootleg from the old Van Morrison Web Site.  This would explain the brilliant sound clarity found here. Again I want to thank my good friend Norm for sharing these Castellon shows with me.
Rarely circulated these shows passed auCDTect Report and are 100% Flac
I did find a few SBE’s here and there but did not want to reflac them. Deciding that leaving the files exactly as they were graciously given to me from my friend Norm was the best thing to do.
Perfect! Amazing! Brilliant Concert!
(Much Respect & Appreciation  Norm for these brillaint gems!)
