Who would have thought that Linda Ronstadt would ever be singing the "old" songs?? Well,she does.....and she does it beautifully in this video with Nelson Riddle. The famous Sinatra arranger and the 70's folk/country icon are brought together for a memorable evening of "real music". From the emotionally packed "Dream" to the hauntingly memorable "I've Got A Crush on You" Linda portrays a true talent for massaging the lyrics to these old standards while maintaining her own unique style that has made her famous. You can tell from her gestures and movements that Linda truly was enjoying herself on this video. Her chemistry with Nelson Riddle clearly comes thru. What a charmer she is!! I recommend this video to anyone who wants to see Linda Ronstadt at her very best...... And watch out for those killer bubbles!!

Picture this -- the talent of Linda and torch songs from the 30s and 40s and even a touch of the early 50s -- then add the arrangements of Nelson Riddle and you have one of the best combinations you will ever have the pleasure of hearing. And the production from her entrance to the finale will make you keep your eyes on the screen throughout. Even the costumes are worth the watch especially for us who remember our prom dates in those multi-petticoat dresses. I've been a Linda Ronstadt fan since she was with the Stone Poneys and this performance showcases her brilliant singing abilities to perfection. I taped the original broadcast performance from HBO many, many years ago and stupidly taped in slow speed so I have been searching for another copy for some time. I managed to find one on the internet and purchased. What made the original performance so fantastic was Linda's encore performance of her hit "Desperado". The new tape does not include this encore so if you order this and it does not include the finale you'll never know what you missed. And that's really a shame. PS--she does several numbers on this tape that were not on the original CD w/Riddle so that's another reason to spend the [money] for this.

The concert was great. I remember watching it when it was first released. I forgot how really bad VHS tape is. The video quality is quite poor, but I think it could be because HDTVs don't reproduce old NTSC video very well. The sound quality on VHS Hi-Fi is absolutely beautiful. It would be nice if this was re-released on DVD or Blue Ray. If you are a Linda Ronstadt fan along with Nelson Riddle, copy the audio tracks to your computer. You won't be sorry. The quality of the audio recording is excellent.
