At 18, after watching the movie Ghost World, I decided to start a record collection. I now own hundreds of records and own over 900 cds.

Crystal Gayle I've cried the blue right out of my eyes
Loretta Lynn had two sisters who tried to make it in the music business, Peggy Sue and Crystal Gayle. Peggy Sue did two fabulous albums but faded into obscurity. Crystal would have done the same thing if it had not been for changing to United Artists. This is a collection of the material she recorded for the Decca label. She sounds a bit like Loretta Lynn here and that was the problem with Peggy Sue. Loretta wrote the lead track which was a hit and it is a very good song. I think my mother owned this album because I remember Everybody Oughta Cry which is a good song as well. Crystal was fortunate to get on another label and come up with a sound of her own. I love her Somebody Loves you album which she would make a few years later. This is worthwhile for curiosity factor and also it has a few good songs.
