This set was assembled by Ignatz who also did the tape to CD-R transfers and created the artwork. It was treed @2001 via The Archival Group with the title Don't Look Back: The Millennial Tree Volume 2 - The 1970s. The 1974-03-30 show is of poor sound quality and will probably only be of interest to the serious collector. The filler material is quite a mixed bag in terms of sound quality. Check the sample below.

Original tree notes by Ignatz:
In the last week of March of 1974, Van Morrison returned to Ireland to play a series of sold-out concerts at Dublin's Olympia Theatre. Shackled with a flu virus, Van slogged through the first shows of the gig. His strength returned, however, on March 30th, and he took the stage for an inspired and elevated performance. That show is presented here for the first time and anchors Vol. 2 of the Millennial Tree: The 70's. Also represented is a 3-song guest spot of Van with Eric Clapton, a guitar rock version of "Gloria" from 1978 and a disco-leaning "I've Been Working" from Scotland in 1979. The same show featured the first-ever appearance of Van with the Chieftains for a surprising encore of "Rolling Hills" long before the Irish Heartbeat tour of late '87 and '88.
