Rick Cua – No Mystery – 1983

No Mystery is the second solo album from Rick after his departure from the Outlaws. His first solo album was very well received and received pretty good airplay on Christian radio. While nothing on this album singled on the CCM charts apparently there were a couple charting singles on the more rock oriented charts which unfortunately I can’t find an archive of. Guest guitarist on this album was Ian Bairnson from Alan Parsons Project. My personal picks from the album are High School Reunion and A.S.S.E.F.
