Linda Ronstadt is truly a worldwide gift to all forms of popular music everywhere. She continues to be a superstar who inspires generations of music lovers with the many fine recordings she has made over the years.
After her stellar run of hit singles and albums throughout the '70s, Linda got together with a super group of renowned musicians and created another pop masterpiece with Get Closer. The 1982 classic features some of her most revered songs like her top chart Grammy nominated hit "Get Closer" along with more hits like her stellar interpretation of Billy Joe Royal's "I Knew You When" and the Jimmy Webb penned smash "Easy For You To Say".
Her rock & roll side is showcased on the Knickerbockers classic "Lies" plus further rock readings with Bert Bern's pop smash "Tell Him", and a fine duet with James Taylor on "I Think It's Gonna Work Out Fine".
Known for her championing of Jimmy Webb's catalog, she continues with another one of his big classics, "The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress", plus a stellar reading of Kate McGarrigles's "Talk To Me Of Medicino".
More superstar duets abound with J.D. Souther on "Sometimes You Just Can't Win" and the tender album closer "My Blue Tears" with Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton, pre-dating the superstar Trio sessions.
