Before the 80's this and Rez are what rocked. You want to know what started it then listen to this.

I agree, Only Visiting is a great album, that has sadly mostly been forgotten.

I first heard of Larry Norman because I found out that the "Why Don't You Look Into Jesus" song on the Holy Soldier "Promise Man" album was a cover of his song (the one you posted).  
The guy was certainly a pioneer in Christian rock music.

They covered Readers Digest. I read that over 300 artists covered his songs.

Wow!  I know Geoff Moore and the Distance did "Why Does the Devil Have All the Good Music" and of course One Bad Pig did "Christmas Time."  I think Steve Camp did "The Great American Novel".

"One Way: The Songs of Larry Norman" was my introduction to his music. Loved that album and wore it out. It's sad how every thing ended for him.

I thought there was a tribute album, I just couldn't think of what it was.  Yes, it is sad.
