Saint Dominic's Flashback: Van Morrison's Classic Album, Forty Years On

This labour of love shows what can be done when an author sets out to properly investigate the genesis and production of one of the seminal works in Van the Man's cannon.
The format successfully mixes background material with verbatim interviews with all the major musicians, except for Morrison himself. This doesn't prevent the book from being entertaining, enlightening and erudite.It allows the participants to reflect on their own individual contributions and we are taken through the creative process with love and care.There is an overview of the the recording schedule followed by a track by track analysis of lyrics and music.
Scholarship and careful accurate research shine through. The author should be congratulated on his hard work and I can highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in Van Morrison and his music.
