Home Discography Biography Gallery Contact Blog About The Story Of The Tune
The Tune probably ranks as Larry's finest achievement as a songwriter and  recording artist and as such when audiences were calling out their requests  mid-concert the song was usually the one piano number which always featured  in those fevered shouts from the crowd. In the course of the 14 minutes that  the studio version runs for, a parable visiting some of the key points in God's  dealing with humanity is told through the lyrics and the music. The point of  the story is really only revealed in the last few lines. The piano holds the  track together as Larry is backed by some members of the Solid Rock roster  at the time and a full orchestra.
