Contributor:
Thanks to Dr. Bill Golden for making this great show available.

EAC, SHN extraction and etree seeding done by G.Gorinsky
(elgilhooley@aol.com)

– deleted redundancy between d3t05 and d4t01 to make the transition
seamless; the transition is quiet so I didn’t include fade tracks.
– patched in Dire Wolf, On the Road Again and first 5:25 of To Lay Me Down
– patched in beginning of Alabama Getaway as well as Rooster and the
beginning of Chinacat
– redid splices in LLR and Sugar Mag (also included NYE countdown)
– patched in the beginning of Satisfaction
– pitch corrections in SBD went as follows (using CE Pro to synch SBD and
AUD tracks as close as possible, then time/pitch stretch the SBD tracks):
entire acoustic set 99.45%
Alabama to TLEO 98.7%
Chinacat to Deal 98.85%
Sugar Mag to end of show 98.8%
The SBD tape has some wow in it, so it was hard to correct the pitch
exactly; the above time stretches were precise enough to allow smooth
patches, but a lot more work will have to be done if this is ever to be
matrixed properly. Calling Chris Chapelle… 🙂

Patches were done in Cool Edit Pro. All other editing was done in CE 2000
on a clean, unfragmented drive with all nonessential programs shut down.
There are a few minutes of quiet tuning between CDs 1 and 2 that I left
in to preserve continuity. There are also a few minutes of quiet tuning
between Fire and Estimated. (On the AUD it’s loud as hell. :-))

it in.
– Looks Like Rain was split badly because of a cassette flip
also about 2 minutes spliced in at the end
– Ship of Fools was missing from the SBD source – AUD source
– Lost Sailor splice from 5:17 – 5:24 has 2 pops they were on the
audience source.
– Beginning of 3rd set added a bit of audience so the set didn’t start
abruptly
– Stella Blue – 2 splices – first on the line “In every Cheap” –
second Towards the end of the song
– Not much crowd time between SSDD and Good Lovin’ so I added the
tuning from the AUD
– Last 2:30 of Good Lovin’ was missing patched with AUD

Tennessee Jed is not listed for this date via DeadLists, but is on my

possibly be from 9/28. I am assuming it’s from 9/30 until proven otherwise.

VAN MORRISON, once one of Marin’s most celebrated rock star residents, returned to his old home turf Thursday, playing an unadvertised concert at Rancho Nicasio, West Marin’s storied roadhouse.

“There has been a lot of history at Rancho Nicasio,” owner Bob Brown said, “and we just added to it.”

The unusually early show began at 4 p.m. on a golden Marin afternoon for an audience of a couple hundred fans lucky enough to score tickets.

It was the 60-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s first date on a sold-out American tour promoting his new country/western album “Pay the Devil.”

The rustic Rancho, with its animal heads on the walls and its Old West ambiance, was the perfect setting for Morrison to introduce songs by the likes of Hank Williams, Conway Twitty and Emmylou Harris from the new CD, set for release on Monday.

Wearing a black cowboy hat, his fireplug body packed into a gray suit, the notoriously prickly Irish superstar was in fine voice and even finer spirits, fronting a 13-piece band, packing a 90-minute set with songs spanning his 40-year career.

After a rollicking rendition of his 1967 classic, “Brown Eyed Girl,” he spoke to the audience, a rarity for him, jokingly saying, “Thank you for the 38 years of money that song gave me.”

He also brought nostalgic smiles to his appreciative listeners when he launched into a punchy, horn-driven R&B take on 1970’s celebratory “Moondance.”

That song was a radio staple at about the time that Morrison moved to Marin County. His bucolic lifestyle in Fairfax with his then-wife, Janet Planet, and their young daughter, Shana, inspired the pastoral 1971 LP “Tupelo Honey,” considered one of his greatest albums.

Shana Morrison, who grew up to become one of Marin’s most popular singers in her own right, joined her dad on stage for a powerful duet on the country rocker “More and More,” a song on the new album.

Morrison, who now lives in his native Belfast, has kept close ties to Marin over the years and visits often, maintaining a home and office in Mill Valley.

Rumored for months, the Nicasio show was Marin’s worst-kept secret, the hottest ticket in memory. The few tickets available for the concert, only one of seven dates in the country, were offered to Rancho regulars via e-mail and by word-of-mouth for $150. Days before the concert, a desperate Van fan bid $1,500 for a pair!

Before Thursday’s show, Pat Dugan of Lucas Valley and his teenage son, Connor, stood in front of the Rancho, holding a sign pleading, “Father son/2 tickets.”

“I told Connor that Van Morrison is one of the greatest entertainers of all time,” Dugan said, joking that he would give his son’s college money for a couple of tickets.

Morrison last played Rancho Nicasio in 1979, when his opening act was a little-known band called Huey Lewis and American Express, soon to be renamed Huey Lewis and the News. Their manager was then, and remains, Bob Brown, who ended up buying Rancho Nicasio seven years ago.

“After the show in 1979, Van came back and said, ‘Hey, you guys are really good,'” Brown recalled. “Because this was Van Morrison talking, it was the first night we looked at each other and said, ‘We may have something going here.'”

A year and a half ago, Morrison just happened to drop by the Rancho during an afternoon barbecue concert by Asleep at the Wheel. He took a liking to the 65-year-old country landmark, and contacted Brown in mid-January, saying he wanted to open his tour there.

“It was entirely his idea,” Brown said. “I had nothing to do with it.”

He chose the odd 4 p.m. start time so that his band and crew, most of them just arriving from England and Ireland, could better adjust to the time difference and recover from jet lag.

“Before the show, Van asked me if people had any problems with the concert starting at 4 o’clock,” Brown said. “I told him, ‘Van, these people would have come at four in the morning to see you.'”
