                Notes

                    "Rough Diamonds, Precious Jewels" is a 4 CD release compiled by Paul Shaw and Trevor King. Most of the songs are live recordings, all from Irish concerts (1981-2000). The three studio tracks were donated by Larry Norman and were recorded in 2001.

 

                    The title of this release refers not only to Larry's songs and performances, but also to the Romanian orphans to which all proceeds of the sale of this CD set went.

 

                    The official Irish release of this 4 CD came in two jewel cases, held together by a thin cardboard sleeve (400 copies were released this way). Both jewel cases contain booklets. In fact the CDs themselves are also CD-R's! Both 2CDs have been offered for sale separately as well. The booklet of Part 2 was later replaced by Larry Norman, because of printing errors. He also sent them around with new orders.

 

                    Paul Shaw and Trevor King also released a four song CD-R called "Stranded In Belfast" (featuring "Be Careful What You Sign," "Born To Be Unlucky," "One Way," and "Moses;" "Moses" was not released on the 4 CD) and a sampler disc (also a CD-R) in three variations featuring 25 (version 2 & 3) and 28 (version 1) snippets of songs from the 4CD release. However, some of the snippets didn't make it to the final release. All of these CD-Rs came with a printed, full-color front cover.

 

                    The three sampler discs were produced for people in the UK and Ireland who were interested in buying the 4 CD set, but who wanted to get some idea of the quality of the tracks before committing themselves. The cost of this sampler disc was then deducted from the cost of the 4 CD set if ordered. "Stranded in Belfast" was given as a freebie to people who bought more than 10 tickets to Larry's March 2000 Belfast concert. It turned out to be an early introduction to the 4 CD release.

 

                    Paul Shaw and Trevor King also released the "Backstage Bulletin" in two editions, giving background information on the Irish concerts. Larry Norman included a slightly different second edition of the Backstage Bulletin in his "three books project," released late 2002. The first edition was sent to the first 50 people who pre-ordered RDPJ as way of apology for the long delay between the proposed release date and the actual release date.

 

                    Before the "official" release Larry Norman released disc one and two separately and the 4 CD set as the "Cornerstone pre-release" (in one big jewel case, the number SRD-407 is given on disc 1, 3 & 4 and the number SRD-408 is given on disc 2). These CDs are compiled differently. The Cornerstone pre-release even contains recordings made in the Netherlands, New Zealand, and England (!). The songs in this 4 CD set are listed above and those which are marked with an asterisk, are not on the official release.

 

                    Disc 1 and 2 from the Cornerstone pre-release are exactly the same as the separate releases of these discs.

 

                    "Shake It Up Baby" (which is in fact "Twist And Shout") and "Unlucky Blues" ("Born To Be Unlucky") were recorded in 1987 according to the information on the "Rough Diamonds, Precious Jewels" website and the second edition of the Backstage Bulletin. The booklet of the "Gathered Moments (Somewhere In This Lifetime)" CD says these recordings are from 1988, which is not correct.

 

                    "Under His Love" is in fact one song that contains "Without Him," "I Wish We'd All Been Ready," and "Messiah." It ends with the Barry McGuire text "We're on The Eve Of Destruction."
