                Notes

                    This is an Australian Larry Norman compilation album (foldout cover). There are two versions; one has tan colored Rhema labels, the other has blue Starstorm labels. In both cases the cover says "Starstorm Records" and "Distributed by Rhema Records."

 

                    This album has the unofficial title "Starstorm" - slightly confusing as there are more Larry Norman releases on the Starstorm label.

 

                    I think that the stock number of this album should have been 007 instead of 777. 007 fits in better in the range of other Rhema/Starstorm albums and 007 is the number that's in the dead wax. Also, the single label refers to LP RH-007.

 

                    The original "Righteous Rocker #2" appeared on MGM single 14351 (both as "Righteous Rocker, Holy Roller" and "Without Love"). It's very much like the version released on this LP. Other similar versions appeared on "Down Under (But Not Out)" (Swedish LP), US mispress? tape, CD-R release "Over & Out," "The Best Of Larry Norman" and on the CD version of "Only Visiting This Planet" (the bonus track). The title "Righteous Rocker #2" was originally given on this LP only; later it also appeared on the "Over & Out" CD-R (see "Down Under").

 

                    This LP features the full-length version of "If God Is My Father" (which is completely different from the "In Another Land" version but is comparable to the version on the "So Long Ago The Garden" CD).

 

                    The CD release doesn't have bonus tracks.
