    Thanks for the reminder of Larry Norman. What a talent he had!
    My parents weren’t impressed with his ‘Why should the devil have all the good music?’, but I loved it, and all of his songs. ‘Don’t give me those funeral marches; I ain’t dead yet!’. I still play them, along with the other Christian Rock artists of that era such as Barry McGuire (Eve of Destruction).

      Barry wasn’t a Christian when he recorded that, but I heard him live when he was. And Larry Norman too, in Hyde Park, 1972 – what impressed me most was that he rocked as much with just his small acoustic guitar as with the full band.

      That album, I discovered, is now in the Library of Congress as a notable American achievement (which is great for the English musicians and production team).
