Not Suitable For Children

All songs on Disc one and two, plus tracks 1-2 on Disc three were recorded at the Kings Hotel in Newport on October 6, 1993. Disc three tracks 3-11 recorded at The Dome in Brighton on June 19, 1993.

Liner notes: (sic! throughout)
The concert captured in its entirety on this release took place at the Kings Hotel in Newport, (a town in South Wales) on 6th October 1993. Van played at this hotel several times over the few years prior to this concert, as the hotel was owned by a close friend, and Van apparently relished the intimate nature of the venue, performing in a small ballroom to no more than a couple of hundred people. This year however would prove to be the final performance at this venue, and a listen to this recording illuminates the reason why perhaps Van declined future bookings.

This show marked one of the first performances of Brian Kennedy with Van, and indeed most of the nucleus of the soon to be unveiled Van Morrison Rhythm and Blues Revue was in place, and the show opened brightly enough with a couple of songs of the then current Too Long In Exile album, as well as some standout versions of some of the covers destined to be come stalwarts of the set lists over the next couple of years such as “I’ve Been Working” and “I’ll Take Care of You”. The first Brian Kennedy interlude is more than pleasant, highlighted by a superb duet with Van on Sam Cooke’s “That’s Where It’s At”, and the next few songs are the musical high point of the show, with a great “Lonely Avenue” and an excellent tribute to Jerry Lee Lewis birthday, with a “Mean Woman Blues” and “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Going On” medley that would have made the Killer proud. It is after this point however that things start to get a little strange, as the reportedly copious amounts of alcohol Van had been consuming during the evening began to have a negative effect on the performance. Who ever it was who had the tenacity to shout a request for “Brown Eyed Girl” must have been dumb struck by the reaction this innocent shout received, as the show turned strictly X certificate, and Van left the audience with no illusion to his opinion on chart success! Though things settled down a little for a while after this outburst, partially due to Brian Kennedy taking center stage once more, but during “A Town Called Paradise” Van staggers on to his soap box once more, and the air turns blue once again. This show actually meanders to a conclusion a couple of songs later, with Brian Kennedy taking most of the vocal duties, as it is pretty clear that Van has had his fill (literally!)

The strangeness of the Newport performance, with both its amazing highs and astonishing lows, is contrasted by the extra tracks on disc three, recorded less than three months before, which shows a professional and polished performance, including more rarely performed songs from Too Long In Exile and the much maligned (by Van at least!!) “Brown Eyed Girl”. Something obviously happened in those few months, as Newport was the first wobbly(!) step on a very different path, that would see other peoples songs become a focal point of his live show, and the straining to show his musical purity, free from the control of both the music industry and the weight of his own audiences expectations. In the words of the man himself; FUCK THE ASSHOLES!!!!!!

Review by Niall Connors:
What a strange, strange show — it is unique in the true meaning of the word. I have some 25 Van boots, and nothing even approaches the bizarre nature of the King’s Hotel show. The above liner notes well encapsulate what transpires during the show, as an increasingly drunk Van gives way to some of his inner demons, notably, his belief — declared vociferously throughout “Vanlose Stairway” — that he is “a mother-fucking soul-singer”. The highlight of the show — for me — is “See Me Through/Soldier of Fortune” during which Van explains not only what he thinks a soldier of fortune is, but also that “Soldier” is one of 200 or so unrecorded/unreleased songs he has written. (I have always wondered from where this staple concert song emanated.)

The sound is not DAT quality, and the show was likely recorded on a standard cassette recorder — although given the venue and some crowd noise, it almost seems better than if this had been a purer recording. (For those of you who remember the Velvet Underground, the quality reminds me of the quasi-boot Live at Max’s Kansas City) At 35 quid, this three-disc boot is pricey, but totally worth it!

Received on 2 CDRs from Graf Ritmo who transcribed his complete cassettes.
To hard drive with EAC. Edited for continuous flow in Adobe Audition : edited at beginning and end. Cassette turnovers and consequent edits audible at 41m, 1h 24m. There is some distortion on both channels on the end of Twistiní The Night Away, and the first minute of A Town Called Paradise had a faulty left channel. This has been mirrored with the right channel to create a mono track at the start of the song.
Normalised and nothing else. Flacced with TLH to level 6
This is the sixth recording to be sent to dime from a series Iíve called The Lost Welsh Masters. Practically every Van show in and around Wales from the 80s onwards was recorded by one diligent taper, Graf Ritmo. Many have never been circulated ñ this is one of them.
This show is listed at vanomatic as the 3rd October. However Graf wrote the date at the time on his tapes and is sure itís the 6th . Many of these Kingís shows were last minute word-of-mouth affairs and no tickets were printed. We await to be contradicted.
Enjoy the glorious See Me Through which Van dedicates at the end îto everybody at Real Worldî ñ Pete Gabrielís studios in Box.

This is the third recording to be sent to dime from a series Iíve called The Lost Welsh Masters. Practically every Van show in and around Wales from the 80s onwards was recorded by one diligent taper. [At present the equipment used is unknown]. Many have never been circulated, and in the case of one show from Bristol in 1992, the date itself was unknown to us.

This uncirculated show was recorded two days after the last one, but, as we know with Van, this is a very different beast – looser and with lots of improvising and flowing vocals. Tremendous See Me Through (with Soldier Of Fortune beginning to form) and A Town Called Paradise. The band respond magnificently to everything he throws at them ñ this collection of multi-instrumentalists under Ronnie was certainly one of his very best combos. Pretty similar track list with one or two notable exceptions with the debut of By His Grace and Professional Jealousy. Band intros during Moondance.
