Sound: good audience recording. A couple of glitches on disc 2.
Source: Unknown but the taper contributes this:
This show promised much in that the great man started in good form,
unusually introducing three of the early songs but Somehow Van & the
audience never seemed to connect & both gradually lost interest.
On the face of it the set list appears to have some potential but Van
throws it away with truncated versions of the songs we all love to see him
prolong. The taper blames poor sound for the muted audience response. Vans
acoustic guitar playing was completely inaudible early in the set & David
Heys bass a mere echo. These problems only resolved part way through but by
then the game (literally!) was over. Other special moments are the fluffed
ending to in the afternoon & creative lyrics from Ned in 'Ain't that lovin' you
baby': 'whoops!' This band is precious.
