EDITORS’ NOTES

Over a career that spanned more than four decades, Arizona-born Linda Ronstadt put her inimitable stamp on a repertoire that included a range of genres: country-rock, folk-pop, adult contemporary, and beyond. The common thread was her resonant, revelatory voice. As this expansive collection shows, the skillful singer’s knack for impassioned interpretation infused rockabilly laments (“Blue Bayou”) with spine-tingling shimmer, transformed breezy soul-pop (“Just One Look”) by adding subtle, aching depth, and made New Wave struts (“Hurt So Bad”) utterly incandescent.
