Deep Breakfast is Ray Lynch’s second album and was released in 1984. It was the first independently produced album to be certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (R.I.A.A.), and later was certified Platinum by the R.I.A.A., without the benefit of live performances or videos.[2]


The album's title is taken from a line in The Mummery Book by Lynch's spiritual teacher, Adi Da Samraj: "Evelyn slapped Raymond on the back with a laugh. 'You must be starved, old friend. Come into my apartments, and we'll suffer through a deep breakfast of pure sunlight.'" The sentence is quoted in the album's liner notes.

The title track for Deep Breakfast. Lynch won Billboard’s Award for Artist of the Year in his genre for this platinum album.

The Oh of Pleasure written by Ray Lynch and Tom Canning from Lynch's second album Deep Breakfast. The Oh of Pleasure appears on Grand Theft Auto IV video game.
