Linda Ronstadt Greatest Hits LP (Red Vinyl)
Classic Hits on Red Vinyl LP!
Ronstadt's biggest selling album of her career! Originally released in 1976, this release is packed full of classics!
Linda Ronstadt's appeal crossed so many genre lines it's impossible to
categorize her as anything other than a gifted vocalist. She enjoyed success on
country and rock charts alike with a voice that capably handled the requirements
of both styles. There was a commanding roughness to her you-did-me-wrong
classic, "You're No Good," that mixed both soul and R&B stylings into her
vocals. In a similar vein, she handled the Motown standard, "Heat Wave," like a
pro, this time giving it the slightest hint of a country twang.
She even rose to the occasion of covering Buddy Holly's "That'll Be the Day."
Rondstadt had some of her best moments with material that had a more emotional
element, regardless of genre. "Love Is a Rose" and "Tracks of My Tears" are good
examples of the disparate styles she could navigate with equal aplomb. Greatest
Hits doesn't chronicle Rondstadt's hits past the mid-1970s, but is still worth
owning, not only for the songs themselves, but as a point of reference in her
"...an excellent overview of her peak years." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine,
