A TRIBUTE TO LINDA RONSTADT
During the height of Linda Ronstadt's fame, recorded music was still pressed on vinyl and a singer was actually required to be able to carry a tune but she has managed to endure as one of the most dynamic and gifted vocalists in the world who could do it all: pop, rock, country, folk, Broadway, big band, jazz, opera and Mariachi. Unfortunately, her glorious voice is now silenced due to recently revealing that she is suffering from Parkinson's disease. Ms Ronstadt was a passionate vocalist who sang simply and clearly from the heart. In this era where many of today's artists are simply manufactured in the recording studio, this is a great loss for music lovers.
Here is a brief collection of some of the diverse sounds from Linda Ronstadt:
"When Will I be Loved" - Linda Ronstadt (1975)
"Falling In Love Again" - Linda Ronstadt (1984)
Finally, here is some vintage footage of Ms Ronstadt performing with Dolly Parton and Emmylou Harris:
