STYLE: Rock RATING OUR PRODUCT CODE: 9966- LABEL: Solid Rock FORMAT: CD Album
Reviewed by Darren Hirst
This is a live album with a clear desire to be a studio record. Part of Solid Rock's patchy re-release programme, it was recorded on Larry's 'Third World Tour' in the mid '80s. This is not, however, a straightforward concert document. Rather the songs are handpicked as reflections on human relationships and God who can help us find a way through the complexities they bring. The songs are rich and the comments between them are both funny and profound. This is Mr Norman at his very best and "What's Wrong With This Body", "Don't You Wanna Talk About It" and "Messiah" are amongst the many high points. As an added bonus the CD has a full length interview in which Larry discusses the songs and a studio version of "What's Wrong With This Body" which you wont' find anywhere else.
