Man in the Middle (1984)

Updated: May 30

Man in the Middle is the third studio album by Christian singer - songwriter Wayne Watson, released in early 1984 on Milk & Honey Records. This is Watson's final album on Benson's Milk & Honey label and is produced by Brian Tankersley. The album was recorded in 1983 and Watson wrote three songs. "Love Found a Way," the title track and "Celebrate" were Christian radio hits. This album and his previous album New Lives for Old was reissued as a double disc CD in 1988 omitting the tracks "Jack and Jill" and "It's a Sure Thing." In 1992, Man in the Middle was reissued by itself on CD with the two tracks included, but has since been out of print and it is not available digitally. A YouTube link to listen to the album is posted below this article.
