Taking a tip from the classic, "The Transformed Man" by William Shatner, Mission Impossible's Greg Morris treated the world to his version of the "talking song" on an album he released in 1968. "For You" features Morris speaking his way through romantic songs such as "For Once In My Life", "The Nearness of You", "Come Rain Or Come Shine" and "The Twelfth of Never" just to name a few. The liner notes on the back cover start off with "To say that this first album by Mission: Impossible television series star Greg Morris is unique is putting it mildly". Unique is without a doubt the best way to describe this. One might think of the sultry and seductive style of Barry White. Believe me, this is no Barry White album! All I can say is that if mono-tone lyric readings are what you crave, then this album is "for you . . . " Enjoy!
