Geetarz Comments:

Derek and the Dominos played two consecutive nights at the Community Theatre in Berkeley, California, and this recording represents the first of those two nights.

Sitting in with the band that night was a 16 year old Neal Schon. In a 1995 “Off the Record” (Westwood One) interview, this was Schon’s recollection:

“You know, I had been doing a lot of playing in San Francisco … I had lived in the Bay area … I didn’t have a driver’s license … so a good friend of mine, Jackie, that ended up working for Journey later, would come and pick me up on weekends and I’d go play on Broadway … I’d play at [Mike Bloomfield’s] club,and it became this thing, there was like, this ‘buzz’ in the city, about this kid [Schon].

I was in the studio with the Santana band, and we were just jamming, you know, getting high and jamming, and staying up until the wee hours of the morning, and just trying to create some music, and Eric Clapton walked in. You know, Eric Clapton at that time, was like, and before that time, had been like a god to me, a guitar hero, and he walked in and I didn’t even say ‘hello’, I was like so scared he was in the room … and we played all night, and without even saying goodbye to or anything to him he walked out, and I was just still like …in shock.

So I went home, went to sleep at some ungodly hour, got up at 3 or 4, went back to Wally Heider’s in San Francisco where we were rehearsing, and I had a message there waiting at the front desk, and it was from Clapton, and he was playing at the [Berkeley] Community Theatre there that night, and he invited me to play with him.

So, I didn’t have a car, I didn’t have a license … I can’t remember exactly who drove me there … I forget too many things these days, too many drugs (laughs) … but, she drove me, I remember she drove me over there, and I got there about 5 or 10 minutes before he went on stage, and he said “… I’ll go out
and play about two numbers, and then I’ll call you out on stage as a really good friend of mine, and you can stay up the whole rest of the night and play the whole set with me.

I said “yeah, okay … no problem”, because I knew all his songs, all his guitar solos, from record, note-for-note … I wasn’t scared to do it, because I knew all his material, like the back of my hand, I had studied it for so many years … I went on, and just ripped the place up, and he loved it.

He [Clapton] invited me back to his hotel later that evening, and basically was asking me ‘who do you listen to?’, and I said “well, I listen to YOU” and he said bleep, ‘I don’t believe it’, he didn’t believe it and there was this little acoustic guitar in his room, and I played him note-for-note ‘Live Crossroads’
or something, and he was like “I can’t believe that, you’ve taken it where I left it”.

And that’s still [like] the ultimate compliment for me at this point in my life, coming from any guitarist, and I’ll never forget that, a highlight of my life!”

Overall, this is an exceptional performance, and a worthwhile
listen for those intrepid enough to brave a fair to poor audience
recording. Once again I invoke Geetarz’ Law, which states “The best
performances are usually captured by the worst recordings, and
vicey versa”.

Berkeley ’79 was Van’s second King Biscuit Flower Hour broadcast in less than a year. Collectors are familiar with 1978’s Bottom Line, but this lesser known performance surpasses its predecessor. Berkeley boasts the brilliant pairing of Mark Isham and Pee Wee Ellis on horns, honky-tonk piano, and the man himself in top-notch form.

Considered by some to be Van’s seminal work, the superb album Into The Music is well represented here. Along with Pee Wee and Mark, the band includes fellow ITM alumni Toni Marcus and Herbie Armstrong. Katie Kissoon, always so in tune with Van on vocals, shines throughout. Along with some highly enjoyable reworking of older tunes, the set list features some of the most celebratory music of Vanís career. “You Make Me Feel So Free” lives up to its title, and a rollicking “Bright Side Of The Road” will make you want to get up and dance. But the highlight of the disc is the soul-searing (and relatively rare) rendition of “Angeliou”.

Volume Eight delivers excitement from the opening bars of “Kingdom Hall” to the final fading notes of “Wild Night”. We believe it’s an absolute must for any fan of this era.

Bob’s Boots review: The quality of this CD is well below average by today’s standards, but for a 1965 audience recording, it’s not bad at all. Get over the low fidelity buried sound, and you’ll be rewarded with a gem whose historical value cannot be overstated. It’s a great performance, to start with. Very unlike the raw power that was to follow in the coming year.. but just as good in it’s own rights. Consider it being the only recording of any substance of Dylan & The Hawks (The Band) of that year,… consider that it contains the only know version of the title track,… consider that some of the arrangements are like no other known recording, …. and this CD becomes a masterpiece.
