                    This is a numbered white label pressing (first copies said "white label test pressing"), released for the Marriott Commemoration. Only 250 copies have been pressed.


                    The album was released with a few variations. My copy (#4) has a black on white photocopy on the front cover (a photograph of Larry Norman seated on a statue) and a black on green photocopy on the back cover with some text. It's signed and numbered by hand. The front cover has this text stamped: "Solid Rock Street Choir And Blues Band" and "Labor Of Love;" this text plus the song titles are stamped on the labels. Other copies have inserts and no stamps on the cover or the labels. The song titles were stamped on the first 10 copies only.


                    "Labor Of Love" was also released as part of the "Barchaeology" 3LP box with the same catalog number and the same tracks. In 1999 this album appeared as part of the CD "Rough Street Love Letter" (this double CD is a reissue of the "Barchaeology" 3LP box with extra tracks).


                    All etudes are instrumentals and composed by Larry Norman.


                    See also LP "Quiet Night" where there's no mention of "Solid Rock Street Choir And Blues Band;" it's "The Young Lions" instead. On the "Barchaeology" 3LP box there is no band name at all.
