More details

-

This is a soundtrack 2LP that only exists as a test pressing. It was offered for sale on eBay in June, 2014. It may not exactly be a Larry Norman album (or project) but he was involved.

-

The labels of this test pressing say "Music from the musical "Alison" taped live from P.A. system". It's a rehearsal kind of recording that somehow ended up on this vinyl pressing.

-

In the eBay ad, the seller (Charles Norman) sais: "In 1968 Larry wrote songs for and performed in a Hollywood theatrical presentation called Alison" and "not every song on this 2 LP set is written by and sung by Larry, but several of them are".

-

All albums and singles mentioned in the song listing probably feature different versions.

-

"Blow In My Ear And I'll Follow You Anywhere" is missing on this LP. It was released on the one single by the Flies (1969) and the label sais this song is from "Alison".
