"The last song we did was slightly esoteric, it was all the way back to them. We seem to be getting fed up doing the same songs all the time... so we keep changing..."

Van, after Friday's Child, gave us the theme for this weekend of three Spanish shows. Three contrasting and rich feasts of Van music where the rules were broken yet again, just as they should be. Who would expect 43 different songs over three 90 minute shows with 4 debuts off Philosopher's Stone, 2 THEM tracks rarely if ever heard, a great reworking of Frankie & Johnnie, and only 10 songs repeated over the weekend.

With new keyboard player James Delaney, who debuted at Weimar the week before, and Pee Wee playing flute, it was like a new band, constantly on their toes, as Van demanded new twists to the music, or worked Delaney into songs he was unfamiliar with. Full credit to James then, for accomplishing so much so quickly and for creating a superb atmosphere in Help Me on the last night.
