                    On side two of this short, promotional LP Larry Norman gets interviewed according to the cover, but it seems more like a monologue! Maybe this was meant as an "open-ended" interview? Also included are samples of the songs listed.


                    This LP appeared with and without the catalog number (ST-001) on the cover.


                    "Soul On Fire" is listed with "(1968 version);" it refers to the lyrics, it's not recorded in 1968 but in 1974. It's the same version as on "Down Under (But Not Out)"


                    On this record Larry Norman says that "Woman Of God" was written in England, in 1981.


                    STC-001 appears on the j-card but the cassette shell has ST-001.*


                    "Letter To A Friend" is the same song as "Letters To The Church," but only Larry Norman sings - no duet on this one (see "Home At Last" and "Live At Flevo"). This version seems to be the same as "Letter To The Church" on the "Rough Street Love Letter" double CD.
