Album of the Day
A native of San Antonio, Texas, Christopher Cross took the pop world by storm with his self-titled debut. Produced by Michael Omartian, CHRISTOPHER CROSS is immaculately crafted, with the singer-songwriter's fine voice supported by an ace studio band and such duet partners as Don Henley, Michael McDonald and Nicolette Larson. The nine fine originals on the Warner Bros. collection included four Top 40 hits, including “Never Be the Same,” “Ride Like The Wind” and “Sailing,” which topped the U.S. singles chart on this day in 1980. CHRISTOPHER CROSS sold more than 5 million copies, earned five Grammys (among them Album, Record and Song of the Year) and remains among the most enjoyable adult contemporary albums of its era.
