Linda Ronstadt: Greatest Hits (Asylum)*****

Barbara Charone, Sounds, 25 December 1976

THIS ALBUM is great. Had it been live, it would have been even greater. The twelve tracks here represent some of the very best Linda Ronstadt vinyl vocals. But onstage, most of these tunes break out of their tightly structured, well produced studio confines and explode into something grander.

Total word count of piece: 408
