Van Morrison at the Winterland Feb 2, 1974

Van Morrison remains seated and playing acoustic guitar for most of this show.  This footage is in black & white and concentrates entirely on Van Morrison. It’s an incredible set-list and the delivery is first class.

The Band:
  • Dahaud Shaar: drums
  • James Trumbo: keyboards
  • Ralph Wash: guitar
  • David Hayes: bass
  • Dorothy Morrison: backing vocals
  • Bill Combs: backing vocals
