  • Unlike the crop of West Coast artists with whom she was associated (e.g., the Eagles, Jackson Browne), Linda Ronstadt is a singer, pure and simple. Her extraordinary, clarion voice enabled her to distinguish herself as an interpreter of other people's songs in an era that prized the singer/songwriter. Whether she sang country, straight-ahead pop, '50s rockers, or even soul, the results were contagious. This package provides the essentials from the Golden Age of Ronstadt, the early- to mid-'70s, when she ruled the radio.
  • All her major chart hits are here, from "Different Drum" with her pre-solo-career group, the Stone Poneys, to the country-rock of "Desperado" to her sprightly renditions of hits by Buddy Holly (That'll Be the Day") and the Everly Brothers ("When Will I Be Loved.") She belts her way through the soul classic "Heat Wave," and turns in an aching cover of Smoky Robinson's "Tracks of My Tears" that does ample justice to that poignant ballad. "You're No Good," perhaps her signature song of the era, captures all of the things that characterize her work: a strong melody, imaginative arrangement and crisp production, all carried by that inimitable voice.
