    I have listened to Ronstadt since her time with the Stone Poneys. Their big hit “Different Drum” was written by the late Michael Nesmith. There was no better female voice in the business. Her albums of Mexican and Cuban music are simply outstanding.

      Nesmith had a hard time selling it- IIRC he gave it to her.

      performing later in his life he would often introduce his creations with, “and here’s another song I never sang.”

    Ronstadt singing “La Cigarra”. Perfect Spanish. Perfect intonation. Perfect phrasing. Perfect…well, everything. No one comes close.

      Totally agree. Linda is in my opinion the most versatile vocalist in my lifetime. She can or could sing anything. She literally owns many songs.


      Part of my earliest memories of Linda is an incident involving her and a band that used stolen airline tickets for traveling. And also her close relationship with Jerry Brown, governor of Cali. She could now buy any airline and send Brown to the moon on an Elon Musk one way vacation to Mars.

      Her politics is however, hideous and disgusting. But I am getting over that aspect.

    Beautiful song…beautiful rendition…credit should also be given to the singer/songwriter—Fred Neil…one of the least appreciated songwriters of the ’60s’.

    His stuff is readily available on youtube…check out the original (1967—album: Fred Neil), or try the really strange concert, The Rolling Coconut Revue, August 2 1976 with Fred Neil, John Sebastian, Vince Martin [cf “Martin and Neil”–“Tear Down the Walls”], and many others…where Fred is REALLY stoned.

    If he had gotten what he deserved…he would have died a very rich man…but some get what they deserve, and others get way more…

    CC: oh, and so much more…

    While he was still around, he probably got more royalties from that one than anything else, because of “Midnight Cowboy”…but for some inexplicable reason, the director (or maybe the producer) chose Harry Nielsen for the soundtrack rather than Fred.

    Since then, “The Dolphins” has gotten way more attention…but too late for Fred…I just wish I had met him.
