Morgan Cryar – Keep No Secrets – 1984

This was Morgan Cryar first commercial release though he previously put out a self published album which is next to impossible to find. This album is a solid pop effort and spawned 4 singles on Christian radio. I have to admit that I hadn’t heard this album in the 80’s though I wish I had. It’s not one of the most thought provoking album of all time but it is fun. Special appearances on the album is Farrell & Farrell and Dave Thrush who is Steve Taylor’s Sax player.

One thought on “Morgan Cryar – Keep No Secrets – 1984”

  1. “Holy Fire” blows me away every time I hear it. If that’s not a worship song, I don’t know what is. Jane Farrells background vocals add significantly to this song.
