    I commented on Facebook, but it appears to have drifted off into the mystic.

    I was saying how much I love this song and the album which it is from. So much so that it was the first CD I ever bought. Wonder why whoever uploaded the song decided to use a photo from “St. Dominic’s Preview” rather than “Moondance?”

      im6, I thought exactly the same thing. Warner Bros did issue a couple of years ago a deluxe edition of Moondance (4CDs and 1 Blue Ray) with multiple versions of everything, except Moondance.

      Van hasn’t played Detroit for 10 years now and his last show was a no alcohol, no smoking, no late arrival (7:30 start). He came on, set his wrist watch on the music stand and played whatever took his fancy, including St Dominics Preview. And as Van always does, left at exactly 90 minutes during Gloria.

      Outrage was heard all around as Mrs MDH and left the arena….”He hasn’t played Moondance or Brown Eyed Girl, he must be coming back” ….He wasn’t.

        My Dear Hedley,
        The concert rules were more stringent than the ones at my high school. The nuns were easier.

        I too would have joined the outrage!!

      im6,
      This is one of my favorite songs of his. I don’t know why I never bought the album.

      There were a couple of choices for this song on YouTube. I don’t remember what the other picture was.
