He was the original Christian rocker. My brother turned me on to him with the release of his 1981 Something New Under the Son. I remember really liking it. A few years ago I ordered the album off of his website and have enjoyed listening to it since.
Larry’s solo career stated in 1969 with the release of Upon This Rock. I listened to this album earlier today for the first time. It is easily as good as Something New, it has a touch of the psychedelic sound to it ala early Traffic or the Turtles.
While this atheist can’t believe that he went to his Father’s house, I do know that he is suffering no more. I can’t help but believe that his music will live on. The inevitable tribute albums will introduce him to a whole new generation of listeners.
