5.0 out of 5 stars A Detailed And Entertaining Read, 2 Jan. 2013
Highly recommended to any Van fan.

The author offers a well-researched account of the making of the album (including some original interviews with key players on the record), alongside insightful, retrospective comment.

Despite being a Van Morrison fan - and owning a number of his albums - I had not listened to "St. Dominic's Preview" prior to reading the book. However, I still found the text engaging and entertaining. It also, obviously, encouraged me to get my hands on a copy and hear for myself! I then went back to the book to re-read setions on tracks that caught-my-ear.

Some very funny anecdotes and a personal yet well-informed feel make this an excellent choice for listeners looking for a new perspective on a pivitol album ... or (like me!) an introduction to an over-looked classic.
