Legendary bootleg: Van Morrison – Pagan Streams

van morrison - Pagan Streams

From my perspective, there are better sound-quality boots out there (Live In Montreux, for example), but no Van boot I have — and I have more than a few — so integrates solid sound with a stunning performance: Live In Montreux comes close, but at 150+ minutes, Pagan is the winer. This boot is so good, so valued, that much like the ancestral heir loom one only wears on special occasions, I listen to Pagan Streams infrequently. If I listened to it too often, I would quit my job, leave my wife and dog, and sell my soul to attend every one of the Man’s concerts. I know it took me a while to track this boot down, and all I can say is: if you can find it, buy it.

The sound quality of this double CD is a very good audience recording. In fact it sounds a lot like a soundboard recording. There is some distortion in a few tracks but it isn’t a huge problem and is very listenable. Van actually “booted” some tracks from this boot for his Gloria CD single.
