HHCER 109: VAN MORRISON VAN THE MAN

Morrison V the Man

Side 1: Moondance (4:47 – Fillmore West 1970)/ Caledonia Soul Music (18:10 – studio outtake)
Side 2: Hound Dog (2:53)/ Dead Or Alive (5:22)/ Friday’s Child (5:48)/ Just Like A Woman (7:37) [Pacific High Studios, San Francisco; recorded September 5, 1971 and broadcast on KSAN San Francisco]

Wolfgangsvault has 17 songs from this recording, which seems to be the complete performance (and a long accompanying text describing it in detail). A big plus, unlike some of the bootlegs and Youtube videos, the songs run at the right speed here:

Release date for the Highway Hi Fi album was around mid 1974, based on the discussion found here:

Ken would release four more tracks from the KSAN broadcast on side 2 of his Belfast Cowboy LP (TMOQ 73035) shown here as a first edition – the birth of TAKRL had either already happened or was just around the corner, I would date this late 1974 :
