I've Got You On My Mind
Never Know For Sure
Written by Lowman Pauling
Larry Norman left People on the day the album "People: I Love
You" was released to the stores.
Capitol issued this second album (most tracks are outtakes from the
"I Love You" sessions) on which Larry Norman can still be heard, but
not on lead vocals. Larry Norman is not pictured or listed on the
cover (is he present on all tracks?).
"I've Got You On My Mind," "Hasty Heart," and "She's A Dancer"
are Larry Norman compositions (according to the label). The other
tunes were written by other members of the band, except for "Think,"
a classic tune written by Lowman Pauling of the Five Royales
(released in 1957 on the King label); James Brown's famous cover
version (on which People's version was based) was released in 1960
on Federal (Federal was a subsidiary label of King).
"I've Got You On My Mind" and "Hasty Heart" were reissued on
"Down Under (But Not Out)" and on "We
Wish You A Larry Christmas" "We
Wish" also features "She's A Dancer." "Think" is an extra track on
the cassette release of "Down Under (But Not Out)."
Larry Norman is not present on Capitol single 2499 ("Turnin
Me In" / "Ulla") from 1969 nor on the third People LP "There Are
People And There Are People," Paramount PAS-5013, 1970 (there were
other single releases as well; several labels with four on
Paramount). Funny detail: Larry Norman is shown on the picture
sleeve of the German release of the Capitol single (Capitol 006-80
087). A similar mistake has been made with the Israeli single
release of People's "Harmony" / "Leader Of The Band" (EMI 2010).
