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!!!!!!!!!!!
Muleskinner Blues-done 8 times
Brand New Day-done 1 time-great version
Don't F## Put It All On Me-Van has heartaches after someone in the audience has heartaches of their own
Real Real Gone-done 8 times
Goldfish Bowl-done 3 times
When You're Smiling-done 5 times-Van cracks up a bit
It's All Over-done 6 times-with Chris Farlowe-with the infamous "Nazi Uniform" refrain-a great version
Did Ye Get Healed-done many times-dynamite version!!!!
I Forgot That Love Existed-done 2 times
Carrying A Torch-done 1 time-the first time since 1993
What Would I Do-done 1 time
Russian Roulette-done 2 times
She Gives Me Religion-done 2 times-great version
Beside You-done 3 times
Get On With The Show-done 1 time-the first time ever live. I don't know why he doesn't do this one more often
That's it for now-2001 is a bit of a problem as our darling Linda Gail Lewis is there for the first half of the year-we'll have to see what we can salvage from the year!!!!!!
HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!and comments are always welcomed!!!!!
