Notes: The name of the venue changed very recently, so you may see it listed elsewhere as First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre. This is my first of five shows on this tour, and I absolutely love the gems they've added to the setlist this time around. Recorded from lower pavilion section 102 row Z. Unlike the KWS opening set, the crowd around me was well-behaved, so there's very little interference from them. As for the performance, like most reviews so far, the band sounds amazing. Dave is hit and miss, but we're just glad to have him. Enjoy!

"The quality is reported to be absolutely stunning - better than some of Van's commercial live records. It's a limited edition set - copies appear to be individually numbered - limited run of 250. It has a total running time of just under two hours. Sound really is sensational. The package is described as 'classy'."

Review by Niall Connors:

"Given that the 17.Dec.95 show from The Point Depot in dear, dirty Dublin was captured four years back on The Night Was Full Of Space boot, it was noteworthy how much "press" the soon-to-be-circulated From Dublin Up To Sandy Row received in the Van-List circles."

"Well, the hype was worth it. While the sound on NWFOS is solid, the sound on FDUTSR is flawless; in my opinion, it is better than on the live commercial release, A Night In San Francisco."

"This is the third Van show of which I am aware that the Tonight Only label has released, and they seem to know they had something special here. A couple of blurbs from the very sharp artwork: "Tonight Only is proud to present the definitive recording of one of the definitive Van Morrison concerts of the 1990's . . . .The pristine recording you hold in your hands is released with a very limited pressing of just 250 copies, each one numbered to enhance its value as a rare record of a spectacular concert at Dublin's Point Depot."

"The setlist speaks for itself, and Van's performance is simply "on"; even "Moondance" works! But the value of this recording is the sound, which has a richness and complexity, as well as subtlety, that TNWFOS lacks. Guy Barker's sax solo on "That's Life" absolutely shimmers, and one can literally feel Alec Dankworth's fingers on the up-right bass during "Why Must I Always Explain."

"I have no affiliation with Tonight Only, so I can say without influence that this is a classic boot." Part of the unofficial website

+KLAQ Interview w/Alex

Time to dust off another Fair Warning show from the mighty Van Halen! This one's made the rounds before, but it's one of the few good ones. While nothing can touch the Greensboro show in terms of quality, this might be one of the best just behind it. This show represents the last recorded show circulating from this tour. You'll notice Summertime Blues is in the setlist insteady of Romeo Delight too.

Notes: There were 2 broadcasts (Dutch television) of this gig which contained different songs that's why Insignificance, Better Man figure twice. Minor hickup during MFC (probably the tape). No menu and chapters. Skip every 5 minutes.

notes: Ed is wearing another Tivoli shirt, like the home-made one in 1992. The band is in a very good mood and Ed is dancing a lot. Ed says, “Is it okay if I speak English, because the only thing I know in Dutch is how to order pot in a cafe. It is nice to be back and thanks for having us. It is much more beautiful then I remember it. [smiles] It is also nice to be out of America for the last couples of weeks … in America what we do for fun, because we have some kind of advanced culture … [the crowd boos, Ed smiles] so we have some very futuristic ways of handling our overpopulation problem and that is we give each other guns and kill one another – because it is fucking fun! [Ed makes a shoot sound]. Anyway, here are a couple of songs about killing one another. This is called ‘Rival.’” Ed dedicates ‘Light Years’ to Diane Muus from Sony Music. (She died in 1997 at an age of 33 and knew the band very well.) “So that was about a friend who is fucking up and there is nothing you can do about it! And you just watch’em go down down down. And then, other times you have got friends that don’t fuck up at all and are great people. And then you just lose them for some reason. They are of the planet and you never had a chance to say goodbye. I only mention this because there was a person we used to know here and that was Diane and ah, we never got a chance to say goodbye. This is goodbye!’ Before “Fucking Up,’ he is telling the crowd that Gomez will play in the tent next to center stage and that Moby is coming later. He says, “I’ve been told that there is another Ed (Ed Kowalczyk from Live) walking around here, but I’ve been told that I give better Ed than he does” [smiling]. He smashes two tambourines with his head during ‘Fuckin’ Up’ and tosses one to the crowd, and takes photos of the crowd at the end of the song. Later he’s smiling and says, “Ha, we’re easy … sometimes” likely referring to the fact that they do an encore for a festival. He asks, “Hey, Brett. Are you there? Can you hear me? Do you have the tape from last night?” Brett responds through the PA and says the tape is probably on the bus. Ed rants about the tape as he needs it because they want to leave right after the show. “Well, if he had the tape I would tell you to pass me over there, so I could get the tape and back again to the stage … I think I can trust you guys to do that. But oh well … as you don’t have the tape maybe next time. Oh, there is no next time! Oh, well. This song is called ‘Black.’ Say hello to all my friends in Utrecht.” The last 35 minutes of this show was . Dutch FM radio broadcast ‘MFC’ through ‘Black’ and featured an interview with Mike.

boombox's notes july 2015:
These annual mini Camel tours are quickly becoming one of my highlights of every year since 2013. Unsurprisingly, these shows all pretty much sold out, but I got my ticket as soon as they were announced, so bagged the end of the second row in front of a stack, thinking it a great position to get nice and close to Andy et al, and hopefully where I could get a good recording and some photos and video. Unfortunately, the Forum staff were not the friendliest, pouncing on anyone they saw with a camera. This was a pity as they really did put on a full multi-media show, with excellent lights and some fine 70s-style projections, which would have been lovely to share. As for the setlist, it was a complete change from the previous two outings, with no Snow Goose at all (though St Alban's the previous night got some in a second encore). A much rockier set (Andy told me afterwards that they were trying to do a setlist better suited to the various festivals they are playing this summer) and tough to pick favourites, but special mention has to go to 'Ice', which got a trully well-deserved standing ovation and a fine, bittersweet, 'Long Goodbyes', which featured projections of Chris Rainbow and Guy Le Blanc, who we lost earlier this year. I've included a small folder of the few half decent pics I managed to snap as a memento for those there who weren't so lucky!

As for the recording, it's pretty good, I think, despite the PA being suspended quite high, so back in about row 10 might have been a better location. To compensate, I added a bit of a mid-range hump and took out some of the bass - when Denis hit the floor toms in the louder passages, it was causing my chest to vibrate quite uncomfortably - it's a miracle my mics coped with it. I had to reduce the level of some of the whoops, hollers and clapping of my very enthusiastic neighbour and used just a tiny bit of compression to tame some of the peaks. As always, my 24 bit masters are available for anyone wanting to do a remaster/matrix project: just make sure it's shared here for all to benefit, please.

Third show from the tour on an oddly cold summer night in this suburb east of of San Francisco. Very cool the band opens with "Light Up The Sky," great energy. Ed playing well with the rest of the band. Alex jumps into "Panama" before the band, not sure if this is planned or an accident. Roth was up and down, but not as bad as he has been at times. Most annoying thing is that he talks over the band while they are playing. An example: The band is jamming a nice intro on "Dirty Movies" and Roth talks gibberish all over it. Recorded from the lower bowl. This is an outdoor venue, but has a roof over the sections closest to the stage where I was. Decent recording, clear enough.
