Linda Ronstadt: Simple Dreams

Sandy Robertson, Sounds, 24 September 1977

THESE DAYS Linda Ronstadt works to a production line formula: You get a nice sleeve (this one is by Kosh, who did a similar job on the recent Capitol/Ronstadt retrospective double), fill it with 12 inches of plastic containing slick rereadings of other people's material and then you sit back and wait for the mailman to deliver the gold albums. No more country innovation a la Silk Purse era, when you sounded as if you maybe meant it just a little.
