Where Are The Other Nine? (1984)

Updated: Sep 15, 2023

Where Are The Other Nine? is the debut studio album by Christian singer - songwriter Geoff Moore. Released in late 1984 on Benson Records' Power Discs label, the album is produced by Billy Smiley. Smiley wrote a majority of the album's songs, except for one, and with other songwriting contributions by Bob Farrell, Mark Gersmehl and Bill George. Moore covers Smiley and Farrell's "The Fight Song," originally recorded by Farrell and Farrell on their 1984 compilation album The Best of Farrell & Farrell. The title song became one of Moore's earliest Christian radio hits. In 2020, Where Are The Other Nine? was reissued and remastered by Girder Records on CD for the first time with a bonus track, a cover of Larry Norman's "U.F.O."
