Phil Keaggy: Love Broke Thru

In 1976, Phil Keaggy released his second solo album after leaving Glass Harp. The title cut of his “Love Broke Thru” album is our Spiritual Sunday selection. It was the single for the LP and I remember playing this one to death at WKCC – my first radio gig.

The song was co-written by Keith Green, Todd Fishkind, and Randy Stonehill. It has since been released by Stonehill and the late Keith Green. Keaggy’s interpretation may have been most folks introduction to the song. The string arrangement which makes this song was composed by Michael Omartian – an artist we featured a few weeks ago.

Well known musicians who played on this cut included the following: Leland Sklar on bass, Jim Gordon on Drums, and Larry Knechtel on keyboards. Back-up vocals were supplied by Mylon LeFevre and Matthew Ward and Anne Herring of 2nd Chapter of Acts.
