LINDA RONSTADT / JUST ONE LOOK - BEST OF COMPILATION (2015)
Just One Look: Classic Linda Ronstadt is a two-album set featuring a range of songs from Linda's long history and while not an all-encompassing 'Best of' compilation by any means, it is a well-curated first step into Linda's lengthy career and does provide a bunch of really great reasons to dig deeper into her catalog. Ronstadt, who emerged from SoCal's vaunted early-'70s country-folk scene, became the American female rock superstar of the 1970s. After the initial success of the Stone Poneys' Michael Nesmith-penned "Different Drum," Ronstadt expanded her horizons through interpretations of a long string of successful pop and R&B covers. Along the way she championed emerging songwriters like Warren Zevon ("Poor Poor Pitiful Me") and early Motown favorites like Martha and the Vandellas ("Heat Wave").
