Solid Rock DVD-SRV-126 (2007)
Great American Novel
Why Should The Devil Have All The Good Music
This concert took place in Salem, Oregon on June 24, 2005.
"Larry appeared at the great Smith Auditorium at Willamette
University and put on a show that lasted for almost three hours. His
solo set alone is on this DVD. You've never seen Larry like this.
This is a totally unusual concert performance. It was riveting in
the unanticipated way it flowed out. Larry wore what looked like
farmer's clothes but he appeared to be more like a homeless person.
His mailman, Jerry, had introduced him by trying to deliver a letter
to him - in 1971. The concert had a surreal quality to it. And as
the evening went on, it became more like a journey back in time,
through the twilight zone. Back to 1966.
The concert Larry gives on this DVD was very shocking to the
audience, and especially to the long-time fans.
His talking was the most hypnotic thing, in between the songs, as he
shape-shifted back to the Larry of the post-hippie spiritual
revolution that was coming. He was out on the streets, talking.
Giving people a piece of his mind and a look into the future while
he took them into the past." (from the
official Larry Norman website)
