iTunes Review

Issued days before her induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Duets is, as the title reveals, a compilation of various duets recorded throughout Linda Ronstadt’s long career. A previously unreleased version of “Pretty Bird” with Laurie Lewis is the one true rarity, with much of the collection focusing on the latter part of Ronstadt’s career. She has won 12 GRAMMY® Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards, and one Emmy. Several of those GRAMMY-winning tracks are here, such as her 1976 cover of Hank Williams’ “I Can’t Help It (If I’m Still in Love with You)” with Emmylou Harris, her 1986 performance of “Somewhere Out There” with James Ingram for the soundtrack to An American Tail, and “Don’t Know Much” and “All My Life” with Aaron Neville from Ronstadt’s triple-platinum 1989 album, Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind. Three cuts here are from her 2006 album Adieu False Heart with Cajun music singer Ann Savoy. Best of all may be her 1976 duet with The Eagles’ Don Henley on Warren Zevon’s “Hasten Down the Wind.”

Linda was an outstanding singer and it is sad she can no longer perform due to Parkinson’s. This CD is worth every penny

A good review of Linda's progression through her early country / rock days to her later, more refined library. Interesting to see what she believes to be the "best" of her duets. I would have added several other tracks personally.

An incredible talent and ohh so sexy back in the day. I will always love you and that incredible voice. Best wishes always.

Where's Adios?

Hmmm. If Rhino is gonna make a compilation to capitalize on Linda's induction into the RNR Hall of Fame, then include arguably Linda's best songs. This one seems to be lacking "Adios" with incredible vocals from Brian Wilson.

With roots in the Los Angeles country and folk-rock scenes, Linda Ronstadt became one of the most popular interpretive singers of the '70s, earning a string of platinum-selling albums and Top 40 singles. Throughout the '70s, her laid-back pop never lost sight of her folky roots, yet as she moved into the '80s, she began to change her sound with the times, adding new wave influences. After a brief flirtation with pre-rock pop, Ronstadt settled into a pattern of adult contemporary pop and Latin albums,...
