Notes from the Van Morrison Web Site:
Review by Bob Schultz:
I would say this is a pretty good bootleg. The first CD is taped at one concert by a
single taper who had quiet neighbors. The second CD is a mixed bag. A few good
songs with noisy neighbors -- talkers and yellers, and a few that are good recordings.
The horns always suffer on boots so I don't expect much from any booter. As for the
vocals, it feels good to hear a little rough mix Van once in a while. It sounds like a
really live show.
In the big picture, unless you have taken a vow of poverty, it is an ok way to spend $40.

Just Like a Woman - Loreley GER. 7/9/99 (2 CDR)

Notes from Michael Tandrup: This boot contains numbers from the televised show,
as shown numerous places. The sound is fine, and the cover is a drawing of the Man.
