In addition to original material, Linda covers Patsy Cline's "Crazy" and
Buddy Holly's "That'll Be The Day" and emerges with sure-fire hits.
Released in the middle of the singer's prime output, 1976's Hasten Down The Wind
is one of Linda Ronstadt's most powerful, mature and yes, adventuresome albums
she was to undertake. Drawing on mostly ballads and using crafted arrangements
to emphasize vocals (many featuring gorgeous a capella sections); never to-date
had she delivered such a song-to-song concentration of emotion. Continuing to
find her muses in writers as diverse as the late Warren Zevon ("Hasten Down The
Wind"), Ry Cooder ("The Tattler"), Willie Nelson ("Crazy") and truly Karla
Bonoff ("If He's Ever Near" and two of the strongest cuts: "Lose Again,"
"Someone To Lay Down Beside Me"), this collection was the artist's first to go
platinum and captured her a Grammy for the year's Best Female Pop Vocal
Performance. Her cover of Buddy Holly's "That'll Be The Day" charted at #11 on
the Singles Chart, while "Crazy" peaked at #6. The album itself topped the
Country Chart and went to #3 on Pop. Support comes from many of her regulars;
Andrew Gold, Russ Kunkel, Waddy Wachtel, Kenny Edwards and Dan Dugmore plus
guest harmony vocals on the title tune by Eagle Don Henley.
