Beautiful Voice of Country
on 23 May 2013
It seems a long time since Crystal hit the UK charts in the late 70s. But the quality of these recordings (largely reflecting her studio albums from 1979 to 1996) shows a high quality output which has been unjustly ignored. The big 70s hits, Brown Eyes Blue and Talking In Your Sleep are here in rerecorded versions which are fine. My favourites include excellent covers of Neil Sedaka's The Other Side Of Me, Bread's Everything I Own and Elton John's magnificent and beautiful tribute to Edith Piaf, Cage The Songbird. There's also American Songbook standards (Skylark, Loverman) and even an handful of Christian tunes. But in the main, it's easy to listen to, toe tapping MOR and country.
For this price and quality, you get little packaging style, but a feast for the ears.
