Review from original uploader:
The source for this 2 CD bootleg CD is an audience recording, rather than a soundboard, and the sound quality should be judged accordingly. It’s about average (although I’ve heard far worse bootleg material) with a definite “speakerish” quality to the vocals. So while it is not in the “top 5 Van boots” category, it does document an important series of concerts.

From the original uploader:

I didn’t plan on going to see Van this time around. I was in contact with
a fellow taper coming in from out of town. His mics were broken and out for
repair so I offered up my backup rig for the 4 Van shows. We met before the
first Fox Theater show and gave him a crash course on the rig. He mentioned
he had an extra for the last show but I said I was going to pass based on the
cost of the ticket and a busy schedule. Since he was leaving early Wednesday
it was up in the air how we would deal with him getting me my gear back but we
left it open. He offered me the ticket as a thanks for loaning the gear out.
I was dealing with an issue where the offshore support team blew up the
application I was working on so I had time to go and we met in SF. I was running
my low profile rig since my primary pre-amp was being repaired and he was running
my backup. Easy night of taping and a relaxing and fun show. First time at the
venue and I liked how easy it was. The first 3 Van shows will be shared as well
once I get the files.

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.'”
