LOSSY

His often difficult relationship with fans and interviewers isnít mere petulance or arrogance
or bad temper. It is a deep dissociation from the whole business of putting on a public face.
Paradoxically for such a great performer, he has a complete inability to perform ìVan Morrisonî,
the shaman-like figure of his songs, the conjurer of transcendent moments.

So you take him as you find him. And I find him courteous, engaged, oddly straightforward. All
he asks for is a cup of coffee and that we sit at the window of the hotel where we meet with a
view over Belfast Lough.

He looks as if he might have come straight from a boat in the bay, dressed in a well-worn green
waxed jacket and a fishermanís cap, a ruddy, wind-blown glow to his cheeks. The only disconcerting
thing about him is a kind of simplicity Iíve never encountered in anyone else Iíve interviewed,
the simplicity of someone who has no game to play, no impression to make, no line to sell, no image
to construct or maintain.

Many thanks to the taper

Completely reworked from a master generation source
Normalized-deglitched and retracked

Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!

Artwork included-thanks to HB

Excellent taping job, sound and audience
The thing holding this one back-is the setlist
and shortness of the show IMO.
Good versions of Foreign Window and Someone Like You.

NOTES from the original uploader

The internal mics captured the show quite well. These mics were pretty sensitive so the levels
for the most part were good on the recording and nearly maxed. I balanced the channels only
and ran a tiny bit of EQ over the whole file.

My brother had a great trip to Ireland and Northern Ireland. He recorded all 4 shows that Van
performed that week (his idea!!). This show, plus the 18th, 19th and 21st, were all performed
at the Culloden Resort, which is a stunning place. The other three are coming in short time.
Each unique and each taped from different locations. For his first real taping adventure, he did
extremely well. The shows were small, 300 or so, in a dinner ballroom type setting. A beautiful
room. This first gig concentrated on the hits for a party crowd. It is the appetizer for the 3 great
shows to follow. The setlists are diverse and high energy and the last show a real treat IMO. Enjoy!!!
