Biography

With roots in the Los Angeles country and folk-rock scenes, Linda Ronstadt became one of the most popular interpretive singers of the '70s, earning a string of platinum-selling albums and Top 40 singles. Throughout the '70s, her laid-back pop never lost sight of her folky roots, yet as she moved into the '80s, she began to change her sound with the times, adding new wave ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked country-rock gem July 16, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Although Linda has publicly disparaged her early albums, from her days in the Stone Poneys up to DON'T CRY NOW, in retrospect these are now landmark albums in the developement of the L.A. country-rock style of which Linda was to become the Queen after her 1974 smash HEART LIKE A WHEEL.
This 1972 self-titled album is, in my view, an overlooked country-rock gem. Like its five predecessors, it is somewhat crude and not polished, but it contains hints of what was to come. Linda covers such country standards as "Crazy Arms" and "I Fall To Pieces" with amazing aplomb, and never tries to sound overly twangy. On "Ramblin' Round", she does twang rather nicely over her own bluegrassy arrangement. She also does a very husky version of Fontella Bass' 1965 soul hit "Rescue Me", with some tasty rock backing by Don Henley and Glenn Frey, soon to form the Eagles from her 1971 backing band.
For me, Linda's great achievement on this album is her sensitive live version of Neil Young's "Birds." This song, like the album's opening cut "Rock Me On The Water" (by Jackson Browne), indicates the kind of sensitivity she would bring later on to the singer/songwriter material she often did.
Linda's greatest strength has always been in country-rock; and this early album is proof of that.

5.0 out of 5 stars A seminal album in Linda's career December 27, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album was the last of Linda's early country-folk-rock music before she began the transition to the mainstream pop-rock artist of the seventies that made her famous. The music is still fairly simple and raw, unlike the slicker music that came later, but the song selection gives clues about the future. The backing musicians became the Eagles soon after this album was recorded. Linda followed this album by recording Don't cry now, a fine country-rock album, then by the hugely successful Heart like a wheel.
The songs are mostly (perhaps entirely) covers. I fall to pieces (Patsy Cline), Crazy arms (Ray Price) and I still miss someone (Johnny Cash) are proof of Linda's enthusiasm for country music. They sit comfortably among the other songs here, including Rock me on the water (Jackson Browne), In my reply (Livingston Taylor), Rambling round (Woody Guthrie), Birds (Neil Young) and Rescue me (Fontella Bass).
If you like Linda's other early albums (Hand sown home grown and Silk purse), you will surely enjoy this one also. There really isn't much to choose between the three of them on quality.

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
these songs captured my attention as a FM dj at a college station in the early 70's-what would become the eagles was her traveling band Linda can belt out a song with the best of them and she surely does on several here. I think the choice of music was eclectic-a trademark of hers on future efforts-the players can play and Linda will kill with that voice- this is a little country so if you don't like pedal steel guitars this isn't for you- I love this more than "heart like a wheel" and the rest-she was full of passion on these songs and it comes through.She wasn't famous when these were recorded so it's sparse on studio gimmicks which I appreciate. If you appreciate the changes country has made in 20 years this is an album that pointed the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mellow music combined with Linda's resonating vocals. November 5, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Linda can sing old or new lyrics and bring out in them a warmth that enchants young and older audiences alike. The tunes on this album were the lullabies I put my babies to sleep with in the 70's and we all continue to list these as our alltime favorites. Rock Me on the Water has a gospel quality that endures. Crazy Arms and I Fall to Pieces are "cry in your beer" standards that Linda really puts her broken heart into. Only a lady who has lost at love can put the unspoken tears into a lovesong like Linda Ronstadt. Ramblin' Round is an old-timer's delight from my Dad's generation. The others songs on this album are pure Ronstadt...and unforgettable! She's a four-star talent all the way!

4.0 out of 5 stars Linda Ronstadt On The Way Up! July 14, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a lovely album by Linda Ronstadt recorded in the brief period after she had left the Stone Ponys and before she really burst onto the scene with "Long Long Time". The collection included here are really much more country and even blue grass than she would move to later, but the effect of that clear, sharp voice on all these traditional songs is simply electrifying. I had the opportunity to see her at a small venue in Lenox, Massachusetts called the Music Inn, a country summer place where the performer was up on a covered stage which was more an open platform covered by a roof than anything else, and the audience was sprawled out across an expanse of lawn that made a natural sloping amphitheater. Of course, Linda and the small group she had backing her were simply spellbinding.
Here she works her way through a number of great songs, putting her own special style to magical work. From Jackson Browne's early "Rock Me On The Water" to Willy Nelson's "Crazy Arms", from "I Won't Be Hanging Around" to "Crazy Arms", from an electrifying "I Stil Miss Someone" to "In My Reply", from Patty Cline's "I Fall To Pieces" to "Ramblin Round", this is terrific country work by a performer who was just starting to find her style and form. My favorite song is her interpretation of Neil Young's "Birds",along with a rip-roaring version of "Rescue Me", one of her first hits. This is an album that is essential for any real Linda Ronstadt fan. Enjoy!
