One of my all time faves...now on CD!!!!!!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: So Long Ago the Garden (Audio CD)
This album & it's compainion 'Only visiting this planet' are two of my all time favourite albums! I've been waiting for what seems like forever for them to emerge on disc. While this album is nothing short of fantastic, it's not quite as good as 'Only visiting...'!
Album opener 'Fly,Fly,Fly' is the only track I don't really like too much. After that it's all good. The amazing 'Be careful what you sign' is vintage Larry, awesomely performed & has areally dark edge to it. 'She's a Dancer' is beautiful to the point of leaving a lump in my throat. 'Nightmare' is Larry at his stream of consiousness best.But you all probably know all of this though as I'm assuming if you're reading this review you already love Larry & have this on vinyl.
The bonus tracks are pretty good. 'Up in Canada' is short but a cracking track with typical Larry humour in it. Some of you may have heard it before as it was released as a single in the 70's. Second bonus track 'Butterfly' is not quite so good. It sound like album filler and you can see why it never made the original cut. The last bonus track 'See you in Heaven' however is astounding. It's the only track on the album that I'd never heard before and it's just beautiful. Amazing lyrics as usual & I reckon it's one of the finset Larry Norman tracks I've heard.
I cannot recommend this & 'Only visiting this planet' enough. Both are just phenomanally good albums whether you're looking for Christian or secular music. Buy them now..........you won't regret it!
