Product Description

*Crystal Gayle is one of the most consistently successful country stars ever (also known for her trademark ankle-length hair and for being the sister of Loretta Lynn), scoring 52 hit singles (and counting) on the Billboard Country Charts, including 34 Top Ten entries, eighteen of which reached # 1. Crystal still tours all the year round, and all around the world.
*This third pairing in Edsel's reissue programme of Crystal's nine albums originally released on the Columbia, Elektra and Warner Bros labels between 1979 and 1988 features two albums produced in Los Angeles by Jimmy Bowen (Sinatra, Dean Martin, Garth Brooks, Steve Earle, The Judds and many more), with four tracks produced by Michael Masser (Whitney Houston, George Benson, Roberta Flack, Diana Ross).
* "Cage The Songbird" (November 1983) and "Nobody Wants To Be Alone" (April 1985) include six Top 5 singles (including two # 1s) between them, as well songs by Elton John, Rodney Crowell, Tom Waits and Gerry Goffin.
*The booklet contains all the lyrics and credits, and is extensively annotated by Country Music People magazine's Tony Rounce. There will be ads in Uncut, Record Collector and Country Music People.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 5 Jun. 2009
Format: Audio CD
This is one of a series of twofers released in Britain coveringing Crystal Gayle's Columbia and Warner albums. Here you will find her second and third Warner albums (Cage the songbird, from 1983, and Nobody wants to be alone, from 1984). I do not play these albums as often as most of Crystal's other music but I always enjoy hearing them. They are high quality albums featuring the type of pop-country music that was popular on American country radio at the time, helping to maintain Crystal's position as one of the most important female singers in country music at the time, though she did not maintain that position for much longer.
The title track of Cage the Songbird is a cover of a relatively obscure but wonderful Elton John song. Other great songs include The sound of goodbye, I don't wanna lose your love and Turning away as well as fine covers of Victim or a fool (Rodney Crowell) and Take me home (Tom Waits).

The second album here, Nobody wants to be alone, is similar in style and quality. It includes more great songs such as A long and lasting love, Tonight tonight, the title track, Coming to the dance and Touch and go.

If you are a fan of Crystal's music, you will love these albums.

1 of 5 people found the following review helpful By David on 16 July 2008
Format: Audio CD
Really pleased that Nobody Wants To Be Alone was being released on CD. Packaging and concept of the series is top quality. However, the sound quality on this album appears to be poor. Crystal's voice distorts and there is a lot of hiss. Or is it me with a duff copy? Thoughts would be welcome.

Nevertheless, a lovely album.

Two stars are for the sound quality. If that was up to the mark then it would have 5 stars...

One of the best Crystal albums of her career 26 Feb. 2009
By caj - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Cage the Songbird is my favorite Crystal album. Produced by Jimmy Bowen, it is full of beautiful ballads and a few uptempos. I Don't Wanna Lose your Love is my favorite CG song and it, along with Sound of Goodbye, Turning Away, and Me Against the Night were all top 5 hits - the only time she managed that feat. The rest of the album is beautiful, esp the title track written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin. This was also one of the first vinyl albums recorded digitally at the time.

Nobody Wants to Be Alone is not quite as good, but it still has some great songs. You Were There for Me, Tonight Tonight, and Coming to the Dance were all beautiful songs. The title track and Long and Lasting Love were both top 5 hits.

Definitely a cd you want to add to your Crystal collection.

why another 2 on 1 cd 17 Feb. 2011
By jjclark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Im a huge fan of Crystal Gayle being said first! My first crystal gayle cassette tape was Nobody Wants To Be Alone when I was a kid growing up in the 80's! I now collect the cd's from the early 80's. Cage The song bird and Nobody Wants to be alone were two very important records in Crystal's Career in the 80's. I really wish they would put these out on seperate Cd's like most are done for those of us who are collectors with the original artwork. Some of Crystal Gayle's best work is in these two records. My favorites being Me Against the Night, A Long and Lasting Love, God Bless the Child, and I dont want to lose your love.

Crystal Gayle :Cage the Songbird/Nobody wants to be alone 10 April 2009
By Camron Brandenburg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I really loved this Cd. I think it's great having 2 albums on one disc. Bring 'em on! I'd love it if Sylvia's albums were brought out the same way. These are two classic ladies of country!!!
