On Feb 24, 2008, Jesus music pioneer Larry Norman passed away.  Many called him the Father of Christian Rock and during his career and according to Wikipedia he recorded and produced over 100 records.

In 1969 Norman recorded Upon This Rock, “the first commercially released Jesus rock album”.  On Episode #155, we’ll remember this landmark project and feature some of those unforgettable songs, classics like You Can’t Take Away The Lord, Ha Ha World, Nothing Really Changes and the memorable Sweet, Sweet Song Of Salvation.

  1. I just found your site. I’m not sure what all you have, but I can see that you are dedicated to the classic Christian music. I didn’t know Larry Norman died. I had In Another Land, which was amazing. He was criticized then by many. Today he’s a pioneer. Such is life. I plan on listening to your broadcasts. I will donate as soon as I get a job! I used to have a ton of the classic albums from everyone, being a member of then Word Records and Tapes. I gave them all away a few years ago. Big mistake. I assumed I could find CDs but haven’t found much. Is there any source to buy CDs of the original recordings late 60s to early 80s?

    Thank you for keeping this music alive. I play guitar and lead worship for different groups. I teach the college students and young adults songs like Seek Ye First, Love Song, Peace Give I To Thee, For Those Tears I Died, John Fischer’s Lord’s Prayer and so many more. They’d never heard them but come to love them even more than the so-called CCM of today.

  2. If anyone is looking for old Jesus music collections…the best place we’ve found is ONE-WAY.ORG …they may be able to help you!!
