Essential, awesome, flawless. Quite possibly the best boot there is.
This is rated by Van Traders as one of the top Van bootlegs of all time. On some lists as high as number two. If you don’t have this it is essential Van the Man. The sound quality is very good soundboard/FM. There is an amazing version of “Sweet Thing” that seams nicely into “Astral Weeks” before returning back to “Sweet Thing” that makes this a special one. And “Northern Muse” changes to “Auld Lang Sine”, “No Prima Donna” and finishes with “When Heart is Open”. This is really some good stuff. The “Summertime in England” is awesome. At 13 minutes and Van adds “A Town Called Paradise”, “Take Me Back” and “Boogie Woogie Country Girl” into it. This truly is an amazing bootleg!
