OT: Linda Ronstadt

Any fans here?

I've decided to buy a compilation and was wondering what people here thought was the most comprehensive.

I've been watching a few of her televison performances on You Tube and this one is a particular favourite:

Well, she did cover the Stones' "Tumbling Dice," available on her 1977 album, Simple Dreams. In a July 21, 1978 performance, Ronstadt actually joined the Stones onstage for this song.

Mick Jagger was actually quite enamored with Ronstadt's version of his band's tune, and even encouraged her to start singing more rock-oriented songs.

OK, I have ordered The Best Of Linda Ronstadt: The Capitol Years. It's a compilation comprising her first four solo LP's, with a few bonuses thrown in. There are a few 'Best Of's' out there, but they all seem a little skimpy on content. From what I have heard of her thus far, it's the L.A. Laurel Canyon type stuff that seems to appeal the most.

She's great!
I read once where she was talking about singing begging songs.
The kind of song where you are begging someone to stay with you.

No one sings those songs like her!

I like her and have the two Greatest Hits compilations and a nice bootleg DVD compilation. But out of all those country rock songstresses who made it in the 70s I still think Emmylou is the best.

heart like a wheel album just magnificent. such an amazng precious singer.

her version of mike nesmith's 'different drum' has her right at ground central with the advent of alt. country roots music, before even Gram...linda's an international treasure... the album where she's cuddling a pig (no lie) on the cover also Magnificent...

I love her and bought almost all of her cds in the 70's and 80's. And HB is right about " Hasten Down The Wind". It's a masterpiece for that type of music, I guess most of it can be considered " torch songs". "Heart Like A Wheel" is another gem, I agree BEELYBOY. I think Mick had a fling with her in t he 70's ( BIG SURPRISE) about the time that she performed on stage with the band. She was quite the looker back then...even though she has gained a few pounds, she's still pretty.

I still pull her records out from time to time too. Several nice bootlegs in circulation; see Nov-18-73 (Record Plant) and the KBFH from '75 to name a couple.

I know Big Al's thread is about her music, but weren't Linda Ronstadt and Mick very good friends -if you know what I mean - at one time?

I met her very briefly once in a pub called the Red Lion in Brentford, just a quick intro by thge bar , she was with Steve Simpson and his band Chuck Farley, can't remember if she sang on stage or not, nice lady.
I saw something on TV last week about Latin music and I am sure she now performs more of that kind of music than Country.

The only two big hits covering Stones songs that I can think of are Tumbling Dice by Linda Ronstadt, and Satisfaction by Otis Redding.

Are there any other big hits like that?

Out of Time by Chris Farlowe was number 1 in the UK in 1966 and remains the best known version of the song.

Just listened to Farlowe's version. Nothing to write home about

Hard to believe the Stones couldn't have had a hit with this song, or maybe they couldn't be bothered to promote it as a single. I never heard the version below. .this one is a lot better than the one with Brian playing the vibes.

Wait a minute...

Mick and Keith actually did write a few songs for other artists. Cases in point:

1. Marianne Faithfull singing "As Tears Go By," a song the Stones recorded for themselves a year after her version's release; producer/ex-manager Andrew Oldham also was a co-writer. However, Faithfull's 1987 version is very dreadful to listen to, as her voice was pretty much "coked" up.
2. Gene Pitney singing "That Girl Belongs to Yesterday."

"Don't Cry Now" is a good one, has Love Has No Pride, Silver Thread and Golden Needles, JD Souther's "The Fast One", Randy Newman's "Sail Away", Neil Young's "I Believe In You", and Desperado.

Somple Dreams is pretty good too, has a couple of good Warren Zevon covers, Carmelita, and Poor Poor Pitiful Me. Plus Tumbling Dice.

Ohhhhhh man I love this Broad, what a set of pipes on her, pure
magic. I remember when I was a kid she sang "Crazy" for Jimmy Carter,
in 1977 it looked like he was in a haze. Did she ever produce a live album.
That's the gem I would buy.
