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.
