                Notes

                    This album is part three of "The Trilogy" and was recorded in 1975. Some titles can be found on previous LP's but these are all new recordings. Since this is Larry Norman's best selling album, it's possible that it was also released in other countries than listed (like Australia!)? Same goes for some single releases ("Deja vu" in the UK)?

 

                    "I Love You" was first recorded for Randy Stonehill's "Born Twice" album, 1971.

 

                    Original US issue comes with printed inner sleeve and a four-page insert. The cover is gatefold (like the Canadian, UK & Swedish version, the German LP has a single slip cover). Apart from a "normal" Canadian release, there's also one that says "Manufactured in U.S.A. for Word Records Limited, Vancouver, B.C., Canada" on the labels.

 

                    The original 1976 US & Canadian tape have "I Love You" as the second to last track. The US J-card had a blue background, the Canadian J-card had an orange background (there are some other differences in lay-out as well).

 

                    "Christmas Time" on Solid Rock single 202 is the MGM version (see "So Long Ago The Garden") with horns added and mixed a little differently. This version is not available anywhere else.

 

                    There is an 18-track test-pressing of this album with the following extra songs: "Strong Love, Strange Peace," "Looking For The Footprints," (both on the CD releases) and "Top 40 Survey" (reissued on the Phydeaux tape only). This test pressing was made in the US, the UK, and possibly South Africa (!?). There's also a test pressing of the regular version on United Artists.

 

                    The original Phydeaux cassette has been put together rather differently from the LP version. The songs are therefore listed separately. It has extra songs ("Tuning Up," "Top 40 Survey," "Looking For The Footprints," "I Wish We'd All Been Ready") and some alternate versions of songs ("Diamonds," "One Way," "I Am A Servant," "Hymn To The Last Generation"). "Righteous Rocker #3" is not on this cassette. There are two versions of this tape, with a slight difference in the layout of the J-Card only (one with, the other without the text "Larry Norman, Christian's Rock Reluctant Star").

 

                    "Top 40 Survey" is a sound collage with parts of famous songs & speeches - it's completely different than "Dove L'etude (Top 40 Survey #2)" on the CD "Gathered Moments (Somewhere In This Lifetime)"

 

                    The Phydeaux cassette has also been released like the 1993 CD! Same songs and song order. Unfortunately the package of the cassette was not changed (so still the ARF-007 package). This is supposed to be a mispressing and probably from 1997. I guess some of the Phydeaux tapes went in and out of print several times over the years. This is also the case for some CDs. Like the pre-1999 CD versions of "In Another Land" - re-released in the US and also in the Netherlands - both with little variations in the artwork.

 

                    The 1991 Spark CD version was released in two variations. There is slightly different artwork (the first had a photo of Larry Norman and Cliff Richard!) and minor differences in the length of some songs. Check Mattias Petersson's site for more information!

 

                    CD bonus track "Let That Tape Keep Rolling" is a Greenbelt (UK festival) live recording that was first released on the "Greenbelt Live" compilation (MRT LP 1001, 1979).

 

                    The 1994 tape (made in Canada) features the 1993 CD version.

 

                    The 25th Anniversary Edition of "In Another Land" featured five more bonus tracks (there are two variations on the artwork, see scans). Not mentioned in the listing above are three piano instrumentals by Dudley Moore (yes, the actor). This CD was released first with an instrumental version of "Delta Day Jam." This CD appeared to be defective and was replaced by a good version that had Larry Norman's vocals added to "Delta Day Jam." Both "Delta Day Jam" and "Eternal struggle" were recorded ca. 1975. I guess the added vocals to "Delta Day Jam" were from a later date. The CD artwork is slightly different from the earlier CD versions.

 

                    The first 2003 CD is a reissue of the first CD version but it has the vocal version of "Delta Day Jam" as an unlisted extra bonus track. The CD came with a different booklet. The March 2003 newsletter said this CD is pressed in Australia, but the CD itself doesn't indicate that. Curiously enough, this release is not a CD-R (Larry Norman started releasing his albums on CD-R since 2000).

 

                    The second 2003 CD has a variation on the original artwork again. According to a November 2003 newsletter, this version has been re-balanced, re-equalized, and re-mastered.

 

                    This album was number seven in a series of fourteen albums, mentioned on the inner sleeve of "Something New Under The Son" (albums number nine through fourteen have not been released, see part II).

 

                    There's a promo CD on Sonrise (1995) with tracks from "In Another Land" and "Stranded In Babylon"

 

                    There might be an LP (?) release for the Armed Forces Radio & TV Service, containing four songs from "In Another Land."

 

                    A 3 LP boxed set containing albums #6, #7 & #8 and being titled "The Compleat Trilogy" (as mentioned on the insert of the Street Level reissue of "Only Visiting This Planet") has never been released. This boxed set should feature the trilogy as Larry Norman originally intended. The "In Another Land" LP in this set should also contain "Looking For The Footprints," "Top 40 Survey," and the unknown songs "I Dreamed That I Died," "Presque Vu," and "You'll Never Find No One (Who Loves You Like I Do)" (information taken from two different OVTP inserts!).
