Crystal Gayle -- What do we think, gurls?

She had a pretty and precise voice and a good range. She had big eyes. And long hair.

I love the covert (semi-covert!) sexuality in this.

There was a country showcase within the past decade or so & she was the only country star that visited the gay area (it was before gay marriage was legalized by the SC in 2015) so I had great respect for her after that. I think Reba & a couple other names didn't bother to show up even for a couple minutes which ruffled some gay feathers. I recall Gayle did a couple songs for the crowd. What an artist & a human being!

And I don't know what show this is, but she's introduced by Andy Gibb:

I drew a charcoal portrait of her in senior year art class. It was titled “Crystal” and took me months to complete.

It won no prizes In the annual art show but I believe it figured prominently in my outing myself to the rest of my high school.

I love her dearly and I've seen her in concert several times. Her records adorin my walls. My favorite thing about her concerts is that she changes nearly nothing right down to the banter with her bandmates in between songs.

by Anonymousreply 16March 8, 2023 11:08 PM

R16 how is she in concert these days? Is her voice much changed? Read a few reviews that her sister does most of the singing in the show and sometimes Gayle doesn't even do many of her hits.

Saw her show back in November and she sang many of her hits.

R17 she sings quite a bit of her head and also sings most of the show her sister Peggy Sue has toured with her for the last 20 years as far as I know and does the same songs she has always done which are usually sucks that she herself wrote.

by Anonymousreply 22March 8, 2023 11:23 PM

Songs rather than sucks oy. Also her voice sounds pretty good to my ears. She actually put out an album a few years ago of covers of old country songs that's pretty good.

From a chart perspective, I think Crystal Gayle was more successful than Loretta.

I get that Loretta was basically doing the hard work of digging out and paving the road that every other woman in country music (and maybe lots of women who decided to write and sing their own songs) walked down.

But Crystal just had a ton of country hits as well as Dolly-style crossover to pop.

Loretty was long gone by the time Brenda Gail was born and she grew up in Indiana and married to her high school sweetheart.

You and I was her last hit on the pop charts and it was at the tail end of the country/pop crossover hits that happened in the late 70s early 80s.

When I performed ‘Talking in Your Sleep’ I was thirteen years old. I wanted our music teacher to be in the bed on stage when I sang the song. He was game to do it as a gay bit, but soon it became a drag compromise, until finally it was just me in my satin pajamas that I bought for the show, singing to a teddy bear, actually a sock monkey. This was in the 1970s..I lost to a garage band that covered Parliament’s hit Flash Light. They brought actual flashlights!

I decided to listen to her most recent album this morning and I absolutely love it as much as when I first listen to it and her voice just sounds great covering all this really awesome old songs.

This thread made me want to share it all the other awesome '80s ladies that I absolutely still love to this day many of whom I've been lucky enough to meet over the years including Sylvia who put out a children's album last year that I enjoyed. Lacy j Dalton considered one of the outlaw country stars so now works to protect wild horses in Virginia City Nevada who I've been was lucky enough to see a couple summers ago. Carlene Carter, juice Newton, Roseanne Cash, Bailey and the boys, Tanya Tucker, Paulette Carson from highway 101, KT oslin is sadly left us as well as the late Holly Dunn his Daddy's hands I always thought was kind of silly but I enjoyed and my cousin played at our uncle's funeral. No one takes the train anymore it's one of my absolute all time favorite songs. And her son maybe I mean yes and the controversy it caused.

There's so many stories I could tell about all of these women and so many more too that I can't even list all of the great wonderful artists from that era.

She's more talking than singing in that performance. I get it, she's in her 70s, and the voice is gone. Sinatra did the same thing.

Nobody can take away her career and the great songs.
