    Crystal’s first number one hit and the first song she released that was written by the great Richard Leigh. I read years ago that Leigh played a tape of five or six songs for Allen Reynolds including I’ll Get Over You. Reynolds originally planned for Leigh to record it, but Leigh wanted it for Crystal.

    Reynolds wasn’t pleased with the first recording they made so he had the same band and everyone come back the next day and got exactly the right recording. Not sure what the difference was between the first and final version, but anyone who listens to this song should immediately recognize it as a sure-fire hit.
