                    What do you think when you find out that an artist has performed a long evening of music and it is available on CDs before you even leave the theater? High Tech Larry was probably the first Christian artist to have a multi-platformed website. He was the first Christian artist to set up his albums for release on CDs (and then withdrew, knowing that few Christian music lovers could afford the $1200-$2,200 cost of this new technology.) He had earlier been the first Christian artist to make a scenario-rock video, years before MTV ever came into existence. But in most cases, in later years, it has been Charles who has created the tech-face aspect of Larry's career. Larry decided the Elsinore concert should be available right after the show. But it was Charles and Jason who actually made it possible. In fact, Charles would have been on stage more often during the concert if he had not been operating the equipment, running the multi-media film presentation, overseeing the video crew, and many other unseen elements in the presentation of the concert, along with Jason Carter, Kristin Stavang and Silver. If "it takes a village" to raise a child, it now takes a group of family and friends to create the operation which Larry is part of. After years of feeling alone in his career and being a leader, Larry says he is more than happy to be part of something and be "ensconced in a tribe." Live At The Elsinore is available on a double CD set. Larry performs as a solo artist, sings with his sister in a guitar, mandolin and banjo segment, sings with a group of blind singers from Africa, then does an acoustic set with W.C. Handy Blues Award Nominee, Mark Lemhouse with Gary Pomeroy (People! 2) on guitar, then with the whole band. Special surprise guest Frank Black of The Pixies joins the band and plays out the rest of the concert with Larry and the two even switch off lead vocals on "Watch What You're Doing," (from the official Larry Norman website)


                    The label is listed as SRD-605 on the Larry Norman website but this information does not appear on the discs themselves or the front or back covers.
