Van Morrison - Saint Dominic's Preview (1972)
Of the latter, Almost Independence Day drifts in a stream of Krause-synth consciousness and two chord 12-string guitar, giving it a striking resemblance to Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here title track from three years later. But the definite highlight of this great record is Listen To The Lion - for me, it's simply one of the greatest, most unreserved and fearless vocal performances Morrison ever accomplished. Gives me chills every time once he really lets rip in the middle section, before things calm down again.
And all my love comes tumbling down
