Welcome to the
"Crystal Gayle" 
Video Archive!


"Collection #1"

1.  Performing many of her favorite selections, Crystal steps to the stage
for her very own musical special titled "Crystal Gayle In Concert."  Starting
out with a rousing rendition of "Gone at last" she looks simply beautiful. 
After performing a few of her "early, early" hits, she sings a wonderful
version of "Why have you leave the one that you left me for."  Which
has always been one of my favorites!  Slowing things down a bit, she
performs a wonderful rendition of "When I dream."  Jazzing things up
she steps into the roaring 20's with her exceptional version of "What
a little moonlight can do."  Continuing with songs from that particular
era, Crystal performs a delightful medley of favorites that we all know
"More than you'll ever know" "Lover man" "That man of mine" plus many
more!  Returning to her catalog, she sings a heartfelt version of "You
never gave on me."  Picking up the pace, she performs "Same old story
same old song."  Another favorite!   Then she sings two more!  "Talking
in your sleep" and "Ready for the times to get better."  Afterwards she
continues with a few of her newer releases "True Love" and "Our love is
on the fault line."  Returning to several of her biggest hits Crystal performs
"Don't it make my brown eyes blue" and "Half the way."  After receiving a
standing ovation, Crystal returns to the stage to perform "He is beautiful"
and in the closing the show "Rocky Top."  Throughout this delightful special
Crystal simply commands your attention, she is so beautiful!



2.  Appearing on the "Grammy Awards" Crystal performs a wonderful rendition
of "Don't it make my brown eyes blue."  She looks so beautiful!

3.  Making a special appearance on Nashville Now during the Holiday Season
Crystal sings "The Christmas Song" and "Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas"
from her latest release "A Crystal Christmas."  Throughout the show, Crystal talks
about many things:  her trademark long hair, the upcoming opening of her shop
in Nashville, and her family.  Which by the way, join her later in the show.  She also 
sings "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" and "He is beautiful to me."

4.  Performing "Our love is on the fault line" Crystal is simply wonderful, during
this particular appearance on the Tommy Hunter Show.  In closing, she sings a
fantastic rendition of her hit "Don't it make my brown eyes blue."



5.  "Live via satellite" Crystal joins the celebration on the 1985 "American Music
Awards" as they pay tribute to her sister, Loretta.  It's a heartfelt moment!


6.  Looking simply "RADIANT" Crystal visits the set of "Solid Gold" as a guest host,
and  performer, singing "You were there for me."  She is simply wonderful!



7.  Appearing on the 37th annual "Emmy Awards" Crystal performs a few bars of 
the theme song from "Cheers."  As always, Crystal is simply beautiful!  Very nice!



8.  Speaking very softly, Crystal shares with us, her thoughts of entering into
the country music field, which meant developing her own particular style.  As she
finishes talking, they present her latest video "Nobody wants to be alone."



9.  Returning to "Solid Gold" Crystal performs her latest release "A long and lasting love."
As always, she looks simply wonderful!    Very nice!



10.  After a short interview segment, Crystal presents her newest video "Touch and Go."
Which finds her in a playful mood!   It goes without saying:  she looks fantastic!

11.  The last item on this tape is kind of different, because it's not everyday
that a "country artist" becomes the focus of a daytime soap opera, but that's
just what happened when Crystal made a guest appearance on "Another World."
The storyline of the show, itself, revolved around a "serial killer" and for some
reason "the individual" decided that Crystal was going to be the next target.
In all honestly, I haven't seen this in years, but as the story started to unfold,
I was glued to the screen! 

Crystal's first scene begins with her singing a piano version of "Don't it make
my brown eyes blue" which is simply fantastic!  From there she interacts with the
cast, leading up to her performance later that evening, where she sings "Deep Down"
and "Lonely Girl."  During both of these musical numbers, she looks absolutely RADIANT!

After her performance things start to shift, and the killer comes after her!
In typical fashion we never see who the real killer is, and perhaps that makes the
scenes with Crystal that much more believable!  Quite a bit of this is shot in slow
motion, and so it creates a kind of scary feeling, that she is being chased. 
And Crystal is in every scene!  It's her and not a double! 

She has such a presence on screen, and it translates so well.  Her acting seems very
natural.  As the show draws to a close, Gary Morris joins Crystal for their duet of the
theme from "Another World."  Which is truly fantastic!

This particular collection is 2 hours and 35 minutes in length!


"Collection #2"

1.  Appearing on "The Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson, Crystal performs a

moment, with Joan Lunden.  Looking radiant as always, their conversation centers
around her children, as we prepare to celebrate the Holiday Season.  Which by the

new album, she spends a few minutes talking about her new shop, that is just 
about ready to open in Nashville.

first performance in Wabash, in ten years.  And afterwards, she gave a reception
for close family and friends.  Very nice!

shines!  Looking absolutely radiant, she talks about many things from her life and
career!  As the interview begins, we catch a glimpse of "Butchers Hollow" where
Crystal was born.  From there she speaks fondly of her sister, Loretta, who told her 
to not sing any of her songs, because then people would start to compare the two
of them.  But Crystal didn't feel that would be much of a problem, because she grew 
up singing all forms of music, not just "country."  As the interview continues, Crystal
strolls through the "Cheekwood Botanical Gardens" in the heart of Nashville, which
prompts her to confide why she loves the city so much!  Moving "inside" we are 
treated to a very special tour of her store, which finds Crystal sharing her thoughts
on what she would like to present, her role in the business, and her hopes for the
future!  Overall this is a very nice interview!



16.  Making a very special appearance on "Nashville Now" during the Holiday Season,
Crystal steps to the stage for a heartfelt version of her hit song, "Half the way."
Interestingly, when it comes time for the interview, Ralph Emery asks her if anyone
calls her by her real name, which is "Brenda."  From there, and throughout the rest
of the show, the subject of her "hair" and how she takes care of it, seems to fascinate
everyone.  Crystal also puts to rest those rumors about the headaches, and neck
pains, associated with her long hair, which was written about in the news.  Later in
the program, Crystal performs a new song, "Just an old love."  Then later, singing with
one of her band members, Crystal assures us that it will be a "Special Kind of
Christmas this Year."  Along with another holiday favorite, "I'll be
home for Christmas."  It's a wonderful evening!

"Thank you"
for taking the time to read through these rather lengthy descriptions!  

I know it seems rather "incredible" to believe!  
All these moments from the past.
Moments that you might have missed recording.
And those that you have only heard about!

Throughout the years, I've
shared many of these clips from my collection
with my friends, and they have always been astounded by all the appearances
that I was able to record.  To ensure the highest quality possible, I use a "dual deck"
vcr when I'm sharing any of these moments from my collection.
I look forward to hearing from you!
