What Sin? - The Very Best of Morgan Cryar (1998)

Updated: 11 hours ago

What Sin? - The Very Best of Morgan Cryar is a 1998 compilation album by Christian singer -songwriter Morgan Cryar released on the Damascus Road Music label. This collection contains 12 of Cryar's best songs from the past decade from his five studio albums including the title song from his previous album Love Over Gold, plus two unreleased songs "In the Cool of the Day" and "Meet Your Maker" and a re-recording of his 1986 hit "Pray in the U.S.A." The new recording was recorded in honor of National Day of Prayer (along with a music video) and features "The Morgan Tabernacle Choir" which consists of an all-star chorus of singers in the Christian music industry. The unreleased tracks and the re-recording of "Pray in the U.S.A." were produced by Cryar and Paul Mills.

NOTE: the songs from Keep No Secrets, Like a River, Kingdom Upside Down and Love Over Gold are the only songs in this compilation album that are available digitally. Those albums can be heard and found on YouTube. His 1986 album Fuel On The Fire is Cryar's only full-length album that is available digitally.
