Van Morrison at the Winterland Feb 2, 1974 isn’t a live album but a live recording you can hear through Wolfgang’s Vault of Van Morrison performing in San Francisco in 1974.
At the moment you can only listen rather than download. I hope Van Morrison gives permission for the rights to be extended because this is a lovely performance.
