                    AB LP 777 came with a four-page insert; it was released with pink and with beige labels.


                    On this album Larry Norman takes a humorous/satirical look at the early 70's "religious pop music" trend. It does not feature any original Larry Norman compositions, just cover versions of rather well-known songs. Randy Stonehill plays the role of a DJ (as Surf Duke). The album was probably recorded in 1976, as this year is given on the CD release; on the back cover of the album Larry Norman gives an introduction to the album which mentions 1974!


                    Larry Norman plays the role of a DJ on the extra CD tracks (as The Big Bomber); he's not present on the Phydeaux tape. At the end of the CD, Larry Norman mentions the song "Jesus Was A Cross Maker" (written by Judee Sill). The song is not there but it can be found as "Sweet Silver Angels" on the CD "Agitator - The Essential, volume 2"


                    On the Phydeaux tape, "The Road And Sky" can be found at the end of side 1, "I Am Waiting" at the end of side 2. Both have short introductions. "Shine A Light" on the Phydeaux tape is approximately 40 seconds shorter than on the other releases.


                    On the CD itself and on the CD back cover the number SRD-030 is given. This must be a mistake, since SRD-030 is the number of the original CD version of "White Blossoms From Black Roots"


                    "The Road And Sky" is the title given on the cassette, while the CD gives this title as "The Road And The Sky."


                    There has been mention of "Streams Of White Light Part 2 and Part 3" but they were never released.
