An album which confounded the critics an proved that whatever else had happened since 1977 the man had lost none of his talents as a songwriter or performer. Released in 1985, 'Stop This Flight' remains one of Norman's best live albums, featuring many of Larry's best songs to emerge in a decade. "A Woman Of God", "I Hope I'll See You In Heaven" and "Messiah" all surfaced for the first time on this album along with another three or four decent songs. The only weak song is the slushy "And We Sing 'The Tune'" which veers into Barry Manilow territory unfortunately! Two songs have reappeared on the latest compilation album 'Footprints In The Sand'. Sounds so smooth it could almost have been recorded in the studio with a good band.
