There seems to be quite an industry of bootlegs of Larry Norman concerts and it seems like the best of them ultimately end up being released by the man himself through his website. The problem is that we're now flooded with loads of recordings which are as fine as far as they go but how many different versions of Larry strumming a guitar and singing "Six Sixty Six" do we really need? This one catches Larry in good form interacting with a very lively crowd with the first half of the set a solo performance before the band joins him for classics like "Why Don't You Look Into Jesus" and "Why Should The Devil". Judging from the material, it sounds like it was recorded in the late '80s with edgy versions of "Stop This Flight" and "My Feet Are On The Rock". There are so many of these performances available now, I am interested in listening once for the experience but wonder why anyone would listen to this bootleg more than once unless they were there.

Mike... well done you got the score about right. Its a good enough performance by Larry solo and then backed by a good band... but its an audience recording again... not a bad sounding audience recording but its not a soundboard and its been circulated and traded among fans on cassette for years.
