The date of this broadcast is all over the map. When I was an avid collector years ago it was dated November 2, 1973, but elsewhere its noted as a television appearance broadcast on either November 9 or 11, 1973, possibly even September 11, 1973. I've been out of the Van trading community for a dozen years so perhaps something better has surfaced, but this is from a tape I received @2001 from George Abbs, an old-time fan in Belfast. The quality of this is a vast improvement over what was circulating a dozen years ago. It seems that any between-song banter or pauses was edited out so each song is stacked right on top of each other with virtually no space to place the track markers; I did the best I could. This is one of my favorite live Van performances, an all-acoustic solo show, just Van and his guitar singing & playing with relaxed intensity. I've included a scan of the drawing that came as the tape cover artwork.
