Featuring, Jah Wobble & the Invaders of the Heart, Fingers Inc., Patti Smith and more. Cheq out this black and white footage of Van Morrison performing "Into The Mystic" at the Winterland Ballroom inna 1974. The former San Francisco ice skating rink was converted to a music venue in 1971 by big time concert promoter Bill Graham and eventually closed it's doors on new years eve 1978 with a performance by local counter cultural heroes the Grateful Dead. It was also famous for hosting The Sex Pistols final performance before the group imploded. When I first saw the clip, I thought Van picked up a shaker and was providing some extra percussion but it was actually a harmonica. Another thing worth noting is how close the audience are to the stage. If that show were today (or a couple of weeks ago!) there'd be a crash barrier and a pit containing security guards and press photographers.
