Midstream (1978) is the second studio album by Debby Boone. The album's title refers to the change in producers "midstream" on the album. The first seven songs were produced by Brooks Arthur; the remaining five songs were written and produced by Joe Brooks who was responsible for Boone's "You Light Up My Life." Brooks' songs were all written for his film, "If Ever I See You Again." (On the film's soundtrack, Boone was only featured on the track, "California.") Another "Midstream" track, "When You're Loved," was one of three songs recorded by Boone for "The Magic Of Lassie" soundtrack.

"Midstream" failed to match the success of Boone's first solo album, You Light Up My Life." The album only reached No. 147 on the Billboard 200 and none of its singles returned Boone to the Top 10 on either the Pop, Country or AC charts:

The album's singles include:

  • California (No. 50 Pop, No. 20 AC)
  • God Knows (No. 74 Pop, No. 22 Country, No. 14 AC)
  • When You're Loved (No. 48 AC)
