(1) Jerry: “It should be loud because that’s the melody you know. It should be out over the others.”

(2) Jerry: “Let’s go over it a time or two and get the arrangement. Hey Pig, do you want to do two verses and then into that uh drum business?  Well let’s, let’s decide that because that, that’s uh…”  Phil: “Bring some more grub man.”  Jerry: “Ok that would be the stomp because…”

(3) How many verses do you want to go through on Lovelight?  I think two, two and then a drum thing. And then after, after the bridge come on back and start get back into Lovelight.  Play it man. And you’ll have to play organ too. Give us a signal then, at the end. At the end, go back into the regular bar solo. Go back into the regular again. Go back into a regular verse at the end and go ‘shine, shine, shine, let it shine’.

Notes from the original uploader:

Source #1: 7th gen cassette (stereo) was used for takes 2-14 (tracks 2 through 16).
Source #2: unknown gen cassette (mono) was used for takes 1 and 15 (tracks 1 and 17).
Source #2 was of lower quality, but had an extra take at the beginning and another at the end,
The take numbers are not spoken on the recording, but are listed for reference.

This was commonly traded on cassette, dated as “11/19/67”.  The 45 minute segment has never circulated in digital format till now, with the exception of take 6 which is part of:

gd1967-11-xx.sbd.studio.81259.flac16

as well as:

gd67-10-20.studio.poynton-sirmick.85631.sbeok.flac16

This Lovelight practice session is now labelled as gd67-xx-xx.  There are several reasons to conclude it was made before November 19, 1967 – in fact before August 5, 1967 (currently the earliest known live Lovelight):

– Most importantly, from the talking between takes it is clear they are working out the arrangement. Maybe this the first time they are playing it?

– Definitely only one drummer
– Pigpen sings it a bit differently; in fact he only sings the first verse, over and over.
– The band doesn’t have any backing vocals except the “let it shine” bit, which was dropped & never appears live.
– The guitar parts are much simpler – on 8/5/67 they’re a lot more complex & bouncy.
– They don’t have a transition after the first verse.  By 8/5/67 they have a smoother drum transition.
– Garcia doesn’t have his soloing down for this song at all, and doesn’t seem to have worked out any part other than the chords.

notes from th eoriginal uploader:

incredible jams! outstanding sound quality!!
new to general circulation (Aug 1 2008)
what more could you want?

once again, I can’t give enough thanks to the cast of characters responsible for bringing us this joy: Will Boswell, Taper Pat, Matt Smith, and Ihor W Slabicky (sorry if I left anyone out, this really seems to be a community contribution). Still, special thanks to my direct connection: Taper Pat and Matt Smith. I’m not only forever grateful for this wonderful music you keep sending my way to share with others, but I’m also forever grateful for your friendship, guidance, and kindness. I feel truly blessed to know you and have you in my life.

* track notes by Ihor W Slabicky (thanks Ihor!!!)

please forgive the tracking and timing issues. studio sessions could be tracked any number of ways and I did the best I could to adapt Ihor’s wonderful notes for a differently tracked version

** as Taper Pat observes:

“The source for this set of music is from a stash of reels and cassettes of unknown lineage made for JG by Kidd Candelario for listening purposes in the early and mid ’70’s (how did we play, what did we play, etc..). Kidd did not use archival material in the transfers (equipment, methodology or media) so the sound quality of the stash is variable. However, as time passes and analog sources decay or are MIA, some of the stash is proving to be great interest to the GD community. The stash is most likely copies of the master source, but in
some cases (O&ITW 6/6/73 Passaic), most likely is the master.”

NOTES FROM THE ORIGINAL UPLOADER:
This was treed via the Van Morrison trading groups in 2000. I wrote the original liner notes (below) and the artwork was created by Robert Glenn Plotner. The cover photo comes from a photocopy of an original photo loaned to me by Janet “Planet” Minto, which was taken @early 1967.

These songs seem to have been, by the scant bit of fact & fiction surrounding them, recorded sometime between 1964 and 1967. The original source tape may have been sent (so rumored) by Violet Morrison (Van’s mother) to a fanclub in Holland (called “His Mysterious Strength”, at Van’s suggestion) sometime during 1967 (along with notes referring to recording with The Sweet Inspirations in NYC). The overall sound quality of these recordings is, frankly, terrible. But, their historical significance is priceless. The audio generation/history of these recordings is unknown, as is pretty much everything else about them.

“I Was Born To Sing The Blues” (aka “That’s All I Know”) is in the style of early John Lee Hooker.

“All Night Long” (so titled on the the source tapes) includes backup singers, possibly The Sweet Inspirations, and may be from the first Bang studio sessions (March 28-29, 1967). The standout chorus though sounds more like “Call my name”. Whatever the correct title, it does have a “Twist and Shout” style to it, a song that was penned by Bert Berns, thus this is likely also a Berns composition recorded by Van at his suggestion.

“Gloria” (aka “You’re the One”) may be an early take of that song (which would place it possibly as early as 1964?), but it is difficult to say, let alone to distinguish the lyrics. What can be heard at points throughout, aside from “you’re the one”, are mentions of “Bo Diddley” (whom Van met in Los Angeles in the first week of August 1966), “do you remember?”, “I’m the one”, and what sounds like Van spelling out “G-A-M” (though, due to the muddy sound, it could be “G-I-M”, as in George Ivan Morrison)…”I’m the one”. On the promo interview for “The Healing Game” Van states that Gloria was conceived as “a Muddy Waters / Bo Diddley sort of thing”.

“Spanish Rose” is likely a pre-Bang demo (before March 28, 1967), possibly as early as late-1966 when Van was trying to figure out what to do next while cagily stuck in Belfast performing with a hand-picked band dubbed THEM AGAIN.

“Walking In The Queen’s Garden” is probably an early version of a song by the same name later recorded in late-1967 by Them (after Van left) on their “Now And Them” album (released 1/68). Jim Armstrong (guitarist with Them from late-1965 through their US tour with Van, and afterwards) explained, “‘Walking In The Queen’s Garden’ is one we used to do with Van. It’s based on an old Howlin’ Wolf lick.” Armstrong has also mentioned that this was a song that Them were practicing during their West Coast US tour during the summer of 1966.

“Harmonica Breakdown” (correct title, if there is a title, unknown) is probably an emulation of Little Walter’s style, whom Van had met, and run errands for (to pick up Chinese food), while rooming at a hotel in London during Them’s first visit in mid/late-1964. In return, Little Walter showed him some techniques with the harp.

“T.B. Sheets” is, again, likely a pre-Bang demo. 16 minutes of improvisational blues, extremely raw, but from which emerged a notable early studio recording, an early rock genre “death blues” which generated a point of conjecture as to its “inspiration”. Some books & articles have zeroed in on this song as stemming from a real-life tragic relationship…there are stories of Van emerging from the BANG studio recordings for this spent & sobbing, all of which Van Morrison denies as fiction.

I did not want to edit this too much because these are rought cuts and the flaws are part of the character. Instead, I tried to note them. Only minor editing was performed as described above. Additionally, I did take out a few of the small segments of silence between tracks. I did not make any adjustments to the levels.

Discs were kindly provided by Stu Hanson who comments below:

These copies kick the sh*t out of the versions circulating from those Unsurpassed Masters bootleg CDs. These derive from a 3.75ips reel belonging to Sandy Troy with two additional tracks supplied by a 7.5ips reel belonging to Alan Bershaw.

Sandy’s reel has all the material that has circulated before and its likely that many of the copies out there trace back to this reel. We *think* this material derives from the original 8 track studio sessions (that were abandoned in favor of using the first 16 track, which had just become available in 1969.)

The two cuts from Alan’s reel, Rosemary & Mountains Of The Moon, sound like the same versions recorded for the album, but they seem to be only Garcia’s acoustic guitar and vocal tracks, without all the overdubs. They are definitely not to be confused with the earlier mixes that were originally
released on the 1969 version of the album. These two tracks have not circulated widely. They are both excellent quality and very beautiful!
