The tape had serious Balance, Level and Destructive Cut problems throughout. These have been
fixed as well as possible. Normally I wouldn’t bother with this kind of mess but it is a very
good show and recording.

From the original uploader

I gave this recording to only one person when Van M was on the NAB list here.
So, it’s the first seed from my master cassettes.
I’m doing this in a way to thank Troubadour24 for posting the NY /Crazy Horse 2014 Monte carlo show
(on another tracker); thanks again.

Recorded from the balcony, first row, with my Sony TC 150 and his internal mic (mono).
Cassettes on a Marantz SD4051 deck, to Zoom H4, SD card to PC, Audacity (pitch and tracking only), FLAC with TLH.
Raw version but not a bad result for a 34 years tapes (check samples).

JEMS is thrilled to return to the JF Archive series, presenting another one of the nine Van Morrison performances recorded in and around Southern California circa 1973-74. For further details and backstory on JF, his tapes and the extraordinary lost Van performances from 1975 that started the series, please refer to the notes in Vol. Three:


Unlike the initial Lost California tapes, JFís 1973-74 recordings have long been in circulation among collectors. However, this series marks the first-ever digitization and dissemination directly from JFís cassette masters. The recordings were made with low-end equipment but yielded surprisingly listenable results.

The San Diego show is yet another significant performance and recording and happens to be one of JFís favorites as youíre about to read.

JF writes:
The next night after San Bernardino, Van traveled down to San Diego and we followed him. This was a period when he was really playing a lot in California. He said it perfectly in “I’ve Been Working” (recorded well before these shows, of course):

I been up the thruway,
Down the thruway
Up the thruway, down the thruway
Up the thruway, down, up down, back
Up again

There may never have been a greater time or place for Van fans. In particular, this San Diego show has always been one of my favorite memories. Likely still smarting over the horrible sound system and PA issues the night before in San Bernardino, at one point this night Van seemed to lose interest. He just up and walked off the stage, leaving the band to jam in his absence. In real time, it seemed like he left for 20 minutes, although of course it was shorter than that. But still, Iím pretty sure I remember one of the musicians leaving the stage, too, after awhile, presumably in an effort to get Van to come back out. Which he did eventually and carried on in great form.

The San Diego incident, along with another I witnessed at a concert in Anaheim nearly a year later (11/16/74, coming up later in our series), give me license to have my say about a lot of nonsense that has been written over the years about Vanís temperament and the so-called ìunevenî quality of his performances. Van may not do what you expect him to do. He may not do what anybody else does. He may do exactly what young performers are taught NOT to do in schools and conservatories. But he always engages his muse, no matter how rough or how unorthodox his method may be. That is what I love Van Morrison for.


San Diego repeats the same set list as San Bernardino save for one major change, the last known performance of Ray Charlesí “Hard Times” until its momentary resurrection for two appearances in Leipzig in 2002. The song debuted at the Shrine shows earlier in the month. This is also the second to last performance ever of John Lee Hookerís ìBoogie Chilleníî (or as some call it, ìHarmonica Boogie Chilleníî). Van would play it in Montreux the following year then never again.

Despite taking place in a large sports arena, the sound quality is much improved. In fact, given JFís gear and the venue, it is a pretty impressive capture for 1973. A bit distant, but rich and clear with little-to-no audience interference. Samples provided.

Like the preceding shows, Van is mixing recent material, covers and classics. The show begins with two unknown instrumental numbers (if you can identify the tunes, please do let us know) which lead to an instrumental ìMoondanceî intro before someones say, ìAnd now ladies and gentleman, here is Van Morrison,î at which point ìMoondanceî stops and the band immediately launches into ìCome Running.î

ìCome Runningî sets the pace for a lively and largely up-tempo set. As at all the late í73 shows, Van again dips heavily into blues and R&B covers, including ìAinít Nothiní You Can Do,î made famous by Bobby ìBlueî Bland and penned by Don Robey and Joe Scott; the aforementioned ìBoogie Chilleníî and ìHard Timesî; along with Willie Dixonís ìI Just Want To Make Love To You.î The rest of the show is loaded with crowd-pleasing material, including ìInto the Mystic,î ìDomino,î ìCaravan,î ìCypress Avenue,î ìHere Comes The Nightî and ìGloria.î

Once again, our gratitude goes to JF, who reached out on DIME (you should be next!) and offered us his archive, which had been sitting in boxes for over 20 years, 6000 miles away from where he lives today. Like so many early tapers, he had great stories to tell and the memories flooded back as we sorted through tapes. We are pleased to be able to bring his work to all of you. Please let him know through your comments that you are, too. We also appreciate the unnamed Van collectors who helped get JFís masters back in his control. JF was also kind enough to include scans of his ticket stubs for this show which are included in the artwork.

We want to acknowledge the value and work of http://ivan.vanomatic.de, the definitive Van Morrison setlist archive on the web. It has been a constant reference tool for this entire series. Of course kudos as well to mjk5510, who continues his essential role as JEMSí post-production and quality-control supervisor. He is as much a part of JEMS at this point as I am.

This may ben an official release. It is selling on Amazon from a company called IMV Blueline. They seem to sell other disks like this from other artist, but I couldn’t find anything about the company online. My guess is they are selling these things without the permission of the artist. But if anyone knows different let me know. Dates on this may not be correct, I found them on a fan site. – Mat
