This show was �released� in early April 2005, and it captures Van and the Caledonia Soul Band
at their majestic best. This show is incomplete -- the taper notes that perhaps some superfluous beverage
between the early and late shows may have distorted the science of his taping; nonetheless, what is here
qualifies as a gem. Thirty-two years after its recording, the tape was resurrected from the proverbial closet and sent to a possessed Van Morrison collector, one of the �completist� varieties who must have every show known to exist. However, this insane collector realized that he had something special on hand, and having cleared its
broader distribution with the taper, is providing the opportunity for everyone to hear for himself or herself the joy of a virgin listening of an almost 32-year-old show that until recently was only a sad notation of a show once held of which no recording (apparently) existed. Enjoy this show, as well as the 29 June 1973 show that was part of the same closet�s revelation.
