Bill Craven followed VTM around California in the early 70’s recording Ivan with
a portable Sony stereo recorder and a dual element mic. The results were fantastic, and the shows he caught had not been previously circulated before their initial distribution via trees on the VanTrades list. These shows are exciting for their quality and rareness.
They are audience recordings. There are flaws and crowd noise, but they are easy to listen to and very enjoyable.

  3. Any chance you would be able to do a re-up of a re-up?

  4. Yes, eventually. I’m still working out the kinks of this new internet and just trying to get back in the swing of things.

    I’ve decided I won’t reupload most of my shows but I will reup Dylan/Grateful Dead/Van Morrison shows. So you are in luck. But give me several weeks to get to this one.
