    (Unused Horrendous Disc Credits Mock-Up)

    CCM quoted Larry Norman (March 1981, "Whatever Happened to Horrendous Disc?") as saying that he believed that the new album needed to be refined, in light of the group's "new" artistic direction. The article says that Larry suggested that two songs be dropped ("Fairy Tale" and "After All These Years"), and two should be added ("I Love You #19 and "Hound of Heaven").
    Terry: "Mike Stone was the producer of Horrendous Disc the whole time. So, Larry's involvement with the record was peripheral, he had nothing to do with the recording at that time. He might remember it differently, but the truth is he had nothing to do with the recording of that record. I think Larry did step in and direct us as to where he wanted it mixed, and it was mixed by someone Larry had confidence in, but again he was not there and had nothing to do with it.
    Marty: "Our intention for the album was to record more songs then needed and then pick out the ones that had the best feel and continuity with each other. So, we had a tenative order and, at the last minute, we changed it... I overheard Terry, Mark and Jerry discussing the album order. The song 'Never Leave You' (written by Mark Cook) and 'I Believe in You' were going to be dropped from our final tenative order, and 'I Love You #19' was going to be added. I wanted 'Never Leave You' and I Believe in You' on the album and after some heated discussion we ended up with 'Fairy Tale' being dropped 'I Love You #19' being added and 'Never Leave You' and 'I believe In You' remaining on. I think 'Never Leave You' was dropped after the second or third pressing anyway. They wanted each side of the album to have the same amount of running time, (or at least close to the same) and by keeping one more song (I Believe or Never Leave) would make it uneven. I didn't care about that I thought both songs were worthy of the album... We weren't quite sure which songs were going to go on the album, and I'm sure we bounced the order of the songs off Larry but, he didn't tell us what to put on the album, he kind of left that up to us. But, I specifically remember talking with Larry about not dropping 'Never Leave You'."

    September 1979

  • A test pressing of Horrendous Disc was made by Word. The band took a copy of the record with them on tour in Hawaii but they did not hear the test pressing until Spring of 1980. They were surprised to find out that Word had printed the disc with an incorrect track order. The test pressing's track list is as follows: the Flying Saucer sounds, "On The Line", "Never Leave You", "I Believe In You", "(Near Sighted Girl with Approaching) Tidal Wave", "Sky King", "I Love You #19", "Man In The Moon", "Hound of Heaven", and "Horrendous Disc."
    Interestingly, the test pressings version of "On The Line" is slightly longer with a slightly different fade out.
    We've heard that only 20 copies of the test pressing were made - but have yet to come across any proof one way or the other. Although, we can account for nearly a dozen copies.
