Greatest Hits Live

by: Christopher Cross

In 1979, Christopher Cross became an overnight star with the release of his self-titled debut album. The Texas-born singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist suddenly became a multi-platinum success as he helped re-define soft rock with a string of hit singles built around his catchy but easygoing melodies and evocative lyrics. 20 years after Cross' first album was released, he took a look back at the high points of his career on the 1999 album Greatest Hits Live, with Cross and his band re-creating his most popular tunes on-stage at Santa Ana, California's Galaxy Theatre. Former Doobie Brothers vocalist Michael McDonald guests, playing keyboards and performing his distinctive backing vocals on "Ride Like the Wind." Other selections include "Sailing," "Arthur's Theme (The Best That You Can Do)," "Never Be the Same," "Think of Laura," and many more. ~ Mark Deming
