'The Tune' must probably rank as Larry's finest achievement as a songwriter and recording artist and as such when audiences were calling out their requests mid-concert the song was usually the one piano number which always featured in those fevered shouts from the crowd. In the course of the 14 minutes that the studio version runs for, a parable visiting some of the key points in God's dealing with humanity is told through the lyrics and the music. The point of the story is really only revealed in the last few lines. The piano holds the track together as Larry is backed by some members of the Solid Rock roster at the time and a full orchestra. After years of being out of print it seems that making the song available as a CD single is Larry's way of keeping it available on CD. The one frustration is that the edit piece which concluded the original recording is now separate from the main track and there are 20 blank tracks on the CD between the two pieces. use your remote control and programme tracks 1 and 22 to play one after another and enjoy!
