                Notes

                    "We Need A Whole Lot More Jesus (And A Lot Less Rock 'N' Roll)" is the exact song title given on the label. On the cover the title is given as "What We Need Is A Lot More Jesus And A Lot Less Rock 'N' Roll;" the complete title is between brackets and it seems to be a subtitle for "I Love You" (which it is not). "We Need A Whole Lot More Jesus (And A Lot Less Rock 'N' Roll)" was the album title Larry Norman had in mind, but Capitol released it as "I Love You."

 

                    Larry Norman co-wrote "1000 Years B.C." and "The Epic" (according to the label). "I Love You" was written by Chris White of The Zombies (their version was released on the Parrot label, 1965). "We Need A Whole Lot More..." was written by Wayne Raney, a C&W artist who played with the Delmore Brothers and recorded this song for both Poor Boy and Starday in the late 50's.

 

                    All original Capitol singles from 1967 and 1968 were issued in mono. The Phydeaux album "Down Under (But Not Out)" features the original mono versions of "Ashes Of Me," "Riding High," and "Somebody Tell Me My Name." The Brazilian T-2924 version of this LP is completely in mono.

 

                    "I Love You" on the Phydeaux album "Down Under (But Not Out)" is the short version of the song that originally appeared on Capitol promo single 4481/4482.

 

                    Both "Organ Grinder" and "Riding High" (Capitol single 5920) were co-written by Larry Norman, according to the labels.

 

                    Capitol 2078 was first released with the yellow and orange swirl labels and re-released (between 1969 and 1971) with the red and orange "target" labels. Pre-1970 promos had green labels.

 

                    "Apple Cider" on Capitol single 2251 is from the rock musical "Alison," according to the label. The label also says this song is written by "People." "Ashes Of Me" and "Somebody Tell Me My Name" are from the rock musical "Vox Populi" according to the "On Being" booklet from Australia that was released as accompaniment to the "Down Under (But Not Out)" tape (1984).

 

                    The back cover of the Brazilian issue is in black and white and the album has "I Love You" as the first song on side one. "We Need.." is listed as "We Need A Whole Lot More Of Jesus" on the cover (as a separate song), yet on the label it's listed as on the label of the US release.

 

                    The cover of the Taiwanese issue is different too; the front cover is a blue/white negative of the original front cover. This release is in fact a bootleg. It was a common practice in Taiwan to make vinyl duplicates of US albums.

 

                    The single release from Singapore has a shorter version of "I Love You" which is also on the UK pressing (it's different from the US promo edit). It's likely that this one was pressed in Singapore, but this has not been verified.

 

                    There's a release of the "I Love You" LP of which it is uncertain where it was pressed. It came in a US cover but the album itself must have been pressed somewhere else. Maybe it's from Singapore? There are some similarities with the 45 from Singapore.

 

                    Aside from the Brazilian, the Taiwanese issues and the release(s) from Singapore, there may be other exotic releases. I've heard of an Israeli and a Malaysian release.

 

                    Capitol EP EAP-21103 is a Spanish release that came with a picture sleeve. The picture sleeves of the Mexican EP's both give the song titles in Spanish (the labels show the English titles). The French "I Love You" single also came with a picture sleeve.

 

                    The acetates of People singles feature four unreleased tracks: "Giant Man" (vocal),  "Giant Man" (instrumental), "Opposite Me," and "Apple Cider" (instrumental version). "Opposite Me" and the vocal version of "Giant Man" were released on the "Over & Out" CD-R, see "Down Under (But Not Out)"

 

                    The CD versions of this album are exactly the same as the LP version.

 

                    See also the CD "We Wish You A Larry Christmas"

 

                    In October/November 2003 a new CD release of "I Love You" was sold on the Internet. The u-card said it was made in Australia in 1997 (on Norman Records). This is an unauthorized bootleg with which Larry Norman has nothing to do.

 

                    This album was number one in a series of fourteen albums, mentioned on the inner sleeve of "Something New Under The Son" (albums number nine through fourteen have not been released, see part II).
