Bill Craven followed VTM around California in the early 70’s recording Van with
a portable Sony stereo recorder and a dual element mic. The results
were fantastic, and the shows he caught have not been previously
circulated. These shows are exciting for their quality and rareness.
They are audience recordings. There are flaws and crowd noise, but
they are easy to listen to and very enjoyable.

There are some fade ins at the beginning and fade outs at the end on some tracks but no real music is lost. This was done by the taper Bill Craven.
