There is no doubt that Larry Norman is one of the most important figures in the history of Christian music and deserves great respect. In 40 years of recording he has released some of the greatest Christian rock albums ever but in recent years, most of his output has only been suitable for Norman completists willing to put up with reduced quality. The cover of this album gives no clue that 'You Are Not My People' is a live album of previously recorded material though the sleeve notes inside tell the story. Culled from the two 'Live At Flevo' albums recorded in 1989 and 1990, these are good live performances from Larry backed by bands that "get it" when it comes to his music. There's a good mixture of classics like "Why Don't You Look Into Jesus", "Why Should The Devil" and "The Rock That Doesn't Roll". But when it seems as though every other album of his has already been re-released, it seems strange that the two Flevo live albums aren't released in their entirety rather than this hybrid compilation.
