Editors’ Notes At just seven songs, Saint Dominic’s Preview still manages to cover tremendous ground. The New Orleans R&B swagger of “Jackie Wilson Said (I’m In Heaven When You Smile),” the double-to-triple-time rhythmic mastery of “Gypsy,” and the bucolic complexity of “Redwood Tree” lead to two album-side-closing spiritual epics: “Listen to the Lion” and “Almost Independence Day.” Yet all is topped by the title track, which concentrates Morrison’s many vocal talents into one solitary stroke of genius.
