1975's In Another Land is honest, raw and humble. With this album, (Part 3 of his famous Trilogy), Norman showed he was a force to be reckoned with. 1972's Only Visiting the Planet had already taken root and shook the hallowed doors of CCM. In Another Land took it farther, producing a seminal inspiration of musicians for over 30 years. Now, as his songs have been covered by everyone from DC Talk to Frank Black (Pixies), it is worth looking at the originals.
In Another Land contains some of his most well-known songs, including The Rock That Doesn't Roll, Righteous Rocker #3, Six Sixty Six, and I Am a Servant.
'He was a lone wolf. He looked different, sounded different and he presented his beliefs in a way that rang true. Larry Norman knows what he's doing and if you haven't noticed, you should.' - Frank Black (Pixies)
