                    Volume 1 of the Essential series, but released as number 4.


                    "Butterfly" and "Kulderachna," the unreleased songs of this compilation, were probably recorded sometime around 1973. On the insert of the Street Level reissue of "Only Visiting This Planet" Larry Norman mentions these two songs as being intended for "So Long Ago The Garden"


                    Songs marked with an asterisk all have "single edit" or "single version" behind the song title on the u-card. None of these were ever released on single though and I wonder if these additions are correct. Most of these songs are indeed shortened, but it seems more like an attempt to make it all fit on a CD of 74 minutes (total playing time: 72:54 min.). Bonus track "Butterfly" obviously has been shortened as well.
