Third Day's first full length recording was called Contagious. The album was recorded for about $3,000 in Furies Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. Every member of Third Day was a student at the time of this recording. (spring 1994) In fact, Tai was still in high school. Many of the tracks from Contagious were present on our first national release Third Day. Some of the songs that were only on this record were Blues Song, Simply Amazin', and Faith, Hope, and Love. Only 1000 cds and 1000 cassettes were ever manufactured for this independent recording. Copies of Contagious have auctioned for as high as $300 on ebay. The album cover was a picture of Tai's older brother playing in the mud. Third Day's Contagious cover has a picture of Tai's older brother as a kid.
