Originally released in 1986 by Warner Brothers Records, digitally reissued album remastered by Crystal’s son, Christos Gatzimos
Featuring classic Christmas favorites ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,’ ‘Jingle Bells,’ ‘Little Drummer Boy’
Grammy, AMA, ACM and CMA award-winning country music singer and Grand Ole Opry member Crystal Gayle has digitally reissued her 1986 holiday album, “A Crystal Christmas,” for the first time ever. Like he did on “You Don’t Know Me,” Crystal’s son Christos Gatzimos, returned to the studio and remastered his mother's collection of traditional Christmas compositions for digital release.
“I recorded ‘A Crystal Christmas’ with my producer, Jim Ed Norman, in the early summer of 1986 for Warner Bros. Records,” Crystal recalled. “To help us get in the spirit, we decorated the studio with candy canes and ornaments. This album is filled with my favorite traditional Christmas songs that we all grew up loving and singing. I’m excited that ‘A Crystal Christmas’ is now available digitally for the first time.”
“When I was a little girl I always looked forward to Christmas,” she added. “Being the last of eight children, I loved it when all my brothers and sisters came home to visit. I saved my money all year long so I could buy presents for them. One Christmas I went to Woolworths and bought all my sisters hairnets. The only problem was I bought gray hairnets. I didn’t know you were supposed to match their hair color. I just picked the prettiest ones. I even had money left over for candy!”
