Christopher Cross "(born Christopher Charles Geppert; May 3, 1951) is an American singer-songwriter from San Antonio, Texas. His debut album earned him five Grammys. He is perhaps best known for his US Top Ten hit songs, `Sailing,' `Ride Like the Wind' and `Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do),' the last of which he recorded for the film Arthur starring Dudley Moore. `Sailing' earned three Grammy Awards in 1981, while `Arthur's Theme' won the Oscar for Best Original Song in 1981 (with co-composers Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager and Peter Allen)." Christopher Cross continues to give concerts to this day.

These five tracks available for download as MP3 files display Christopher's talent and artistry but I am disappointed that "Arthur's Theme" is not among them. "Sailing" has Christopher squarely front and center and his smooth voice never sounded better! Moreover, the musical accompaniment for Christopher's vocals couldn't have been any better; what a great songwriter he is! "Think of Laura" is very pretty even though the lyrics are somewhat bittersweet and "Ride Like the Wind" is brilliant! "All Right" just plain sounds good; this tune about a man trying his luck at love once again is catchy and Christopher Cross does this beautifully. "No Time for Talk" again highlights Christopher's gift for singing songs he wrote himself.

Fans of Christopher Cross will probably have these songs already; therefore this music is best geared toward the more casual fan who may just want to download one or two numbers. Indeed, these tracks are particularly good for people just discovering Christopher's genius. The omission of "Arthur's Theme" is a real disappointment; but I still recommend these five songs.

I believe Christopher Cross to be one of the most underrated performers of all times. I purchased the mp3 version as usual and was instantly enjoying this CD. I love greatest hits albums and this was a great one.

Once again Amazon has allowed me to re-enter
my past by providing this terrific Rhino High-
Five collection of Hits by Christopher Cross.
You'll be singing along in no time as his soft voice carefully lays out the tracks you thought were gone! All that at a Terrific Price!

Love the few songs on this Album Collection. They are the most famous ones Christopher Cross made. They will certainly bring back some fond memories. I have this collection downloaded to my smartphone, and it appeared as though the sound was a bit lower than some of the newer songs I've downloaded lately, but which accounts for the 4 stars. But, in knowing that I would still purchase it again.
