Recently Larry Norman and his brother Charley came across a bootleg video of his in-concert performances which was being produced illegally. However, unlike many bootlegs that they had seen, this one featured some unusual and thought-provoking performances that were well worth preserving. So calls were made and a little while later Street Level came up with this legal version of the material. Now it has to be said that, because of its origins, this video is a little rough and ready in recording and production terms but no so that it is robbed of its charm. Live versions of rare songs like "You Did It For Me" and "Between The Darkness And The Dawn" are indicative of the great releases that Larry would have made if ill health had not robbed him of so many of his prime years.
