    Written and produced by Allen Reynolds. I think Reynolds wrote three of her top ten hits. This is still one of my top ten favorite songs she ever released. Such a great song and I love that little country flavor she has while singing it.

    The live arrangement here is different than the studio recording as it’s missing the punch of the rhythm track and the excellent piano fills. Allen Reynolds essentially took the same style of backing tracks he had produced for Don Williams and adapted them for Crystal. It was a very effective sound to launch her hit-making career. But within a few years they veered off into purely pop sounding arrangements.

    Always loved this sound for her. This was a favorite record for us DJ’s at that time because it clocked in at just 2:14. Very useful when you needed a short song to back-time to news or a hard break.
