Like 'Maximum Garden', this is a similar idea to The Beatles' 'Anthology' where classic LN sessions are picked apart and you can hear alternative takes, mixes and vocals for classic Norman albums. 'Only Visiting This Planet' stands as an absolute classic in Christian music and for fans of the man, this is an intriguing peek behind The Wizard Of Oz's curtain. You get master instrumental takes, sometimes with guide vocals and the version of "Why Don't You Look Into Jesus" is perfect for Larryaoke style singalongs. Trust me, I've done it! There's an interesting mix of "Why Should The Devil Have All The Good Music" with all of Larry's different vocal takes faded up simultaneously! First takes, run throughs with guide vocals, attempts at master takes and occasional studio jams and experiments are all here. There are even some live versions of these songs as bonus cuts. For a minority of rabid Larry fans this will be an enjoyable educational listen.
