Firstly, I want to thank the tapers, traders and Van fanatics
who make this series possible. Without them we would be nowhere!!!!

Artwork included-again thanks to Harm

And last of all-ENJOY-that's what it's all about

It seems like yesterday that I was complaining
about Van's performances in 2002-but in retrospect
I didn't realize what would happen in 2006-horns in
the trash-pedal steel on everything-the Lawrence Welk
band backing him up and Van usually on AUTOPILOT!!!!!
Well 2002 sounds great now-so let's get it on.

This time around unlike 2003-2004-and 2005 I did not try to include every song he only did once in the year-because in retrospect some of these songs were inferior recordings. This time I have tried to match the sound quality of the songs within each CD. This time around each CD is my version of my DREAM CONCERT-so here we have it- 6 fantasy concerts which did not take place but should have!!!!!!!!!!!


This volume consists of tracks from
Amsterdam-Middlesbrough, England and
Dublin-all after breaks of at least a week!!!
