|Thanks to BillyCant for sending me a restart of the Van in Ireland vine and he threw in two more Van DVD shows. So, in that spirit I am restarting or starting a new vine.|
3 DVD's altogether
Following is quoted from BillyCant's original:
This was an officially released video in Ireland in 1981. oop now of course.
I dont believe it was ever released in the US. And it was never released as a dvd as far as I know.
Good quality considering 30 year old pal video transferred to ntsc dvd
the following is from wikipedia....
They open with "Moondance", Katie Kissoon taking a verse, then a slightly ponderous "And It Stoned Me", then flow gracefully "Into the Mystic". As this is not 1970, they then come bang up to date with a rocky "Wavelength", the "poised blues" of "Don't Look Back" and a rolling "Wild Night". Katie Kissoon sings "Crazy Love", "with Kyle's flute circling, dipping and gliding off Peter Bardens' delicate piano phrasing". Van is back for "Checkin' it Out", with John Altham on baritone sax, then it's "Kingdom Hall" and a raft of classics, a jangly and ragged "Moonshine Whiskey", a controlled "Tupelo Honey". On "Saint Dominic's Preview", when Van reaches the line about "it's a long way back to Belfast city" the crowd explode, as do Van's lungs on "I've Been Working", blowing the guts out of his harmonica. Indeed they are part of the performance, adding to the inspiration. They shout fruitlessly for "Gloria", between a ten minute "Caravan" and a final encore of "Cyprus Avenue", where Van laughs, shouts, and falls to the ground.
Added to this is a show from the Lorley Festival in Germany 7/9/99 and a show from the Roackpalast Christmas Special Dusseldorf Germany 12/19/98.
First in US please.......
