Synopsis

Amazon.com
As time passes, the sophisticated country pop created by Crystal Gayle and producer Allen Reynolds gains luster. In the '70s, Reynolds's uptown arrangements and the pure beauty of Gayle's alto were closer in tone to the countrypolitan hits of Olivia Newton-John than to the rural twang of her older sister, Loretta Lynn. Her crossover success with "Don't It Make Your Brown Eyes Blue" helped lead country music to a larger middle-American audience. In retrospect the spare, tasteful quality of her songs holds up better than the music of most of pop country stylists of the era. Of her many greatest hits collections, Classic Crystal represents the best selection of her most memorable work. --Michael McCall

CD Reviews

Classic indeed
Trevor J. Hall | PERRY,, ME USA | 07/21/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The unique purity of Crystal Gayle's voice is still remarkable, the songs hit one with a freshness which belies the years since they were released. Most of these tunes were my favourites of the moment, but 'When I dream' remains my all time best song to bring on a mood of contemplation. A thoroughly enjoyable collection that I heartedly recommend for a stress free evening of musical enjoyment."
Don't it make my browneyes blue

"Not much of a review. I can not find her records here in Norway.
I have only one and I must have bought this in 1995 when I was in the US. It's Greatest Hits, but my favorits are not in here.
I saw a tv production long time ago, where a man was playing an instrument like a long box with strings on. She was (among others) singing about a slamming door. Would be glad for any kind of information on this. I just loved that show or what ever it was, and I do still love her voice, her attitude and her mother whom she was presenting.It is hard to pick a favorit,'cause I love most of her songs.But I love;Half the way,-
Livi'n in these troubled times,-too many lovers and Take it easy."
