5 starsOne of her best
As time goes by, it becomes more and more apparent what a subversive artist Linda Ronstadt was during her hit-making days. On Hasten Down the Wind, made at the height of her popularity, she throws a few bones to the public (i.e. That'll Be the Day, Crazy) to keep them buying her music, but then slips in what keeps her interested in singing (i.e. the incredible Lose Again, Try Me Again and the stunning Down So Low.) Her range is on full display here, from the beautiful title track sung with sriter J.D. Souther to reggae (Rivers of Babylon, Give One Heart) to contemporary artists she is promoting (Karla Bonoff's If He's Ever Near, Someone to Lay Down Beside Me.) Finally, we see her first recorded venture into singing in Spanish (Lo Siento Mi Vida,) hinting at her future. Hasten Down the Wind has truly stood the test of time to become a true classic, and sounds amazing on this gold CD remaster. Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for Ronstadt? Unnecessary - she transcends all categories, as strongly evidenced on this album - she is a true musical artist across all genres.
