Linda Ronstadt Appears on
||Nitty Gritty Dirt Band|
Symphonion Dream (1975)
The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's first pure studio recording since Will the Circle Be Unbroken, Dream is another very different earful sort of psychedelic country/bluegrass. The band is joined by Linda Ronstadt, Leon Russell, and actor Gary Busey (as "Teddy ...
Let It Roll (1988)
When Little Feat reunited in 1988, they were embraced by some dedicated fans, but were spurned by nearly an equal number of cultists. That's because to certain diehards, Little Feat belonged to Lowell George and, without him, the group doesn't ...
Anthology: The Warner/Reprise Years (2001)
Were it not for Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris, the universally acknowledged king and queen of progressive country, countless young alt-counry bands would have never donned their faded Levi's and battered Telecasters in the first place, and even if they ...
Black Rose (1976)
Excellent album steeped in the Southern California country-rock sound of the 70s, with all the usual suspects (Danny Kortchmar, Waddy Wachtel, Kenny Edwards, and Russ Kunkel, and producer Peter Asher -- all Ronstadt veterans -- plus Glenn Frey and Don ...

Sister Kate (1971)
This classic recording by the sibling of Livingston and James Taylor offers valuable insight for fans of Carole King's landmark album, Tapestry, but Sister Kate is also a great work in its own right. Peter Asher of Peter & Gordon ...
20 Exitos Del Folklore (1977)
This was the fourth in a series of hit albums Linda Ronstadt made in the mid-seventies, starting with HEART LIKE A WHEEL. Like its predecessors, SIMPLE DREAMS is a rich collection of pensive folk ballads, pop with country leanings, and ...
Gold: Best of John Stewart (2000)
John Stewart's Gold is a spectacular two CD, 41 song best of compilation. It is perfect for the casual fan...if there is such a thing. Stewart has a diehard cult of fans who probably have every LP or CD they ...
||Produce / Jimmy (Songwriter Webb|
Suspending Disbelief (1993)
Jimmy Webb is a songwriter who likes to paint on a large canvas, whether he's writing about glory or loss. SUSPENDING DISBELIEF is just such a canvas, featuring Eagles-style production and many of LA's top studio talents. The wonder is ...
Trouble in Paradise (1983)
On his '80s recordings, Newman relied on a slick, poppy wall of sound provided by the L.A. session vets that were his longtime compatriots. It's hard to tell whether the smooth, L.A. sound that permeates records like TROUBLE IN PARADISE ...
Way It Is (1996)
After a long absence from solo work, Valerie Carter released "The Way It Is" in 1996. Following the pattern of her debut, it featured a fine selection of songs and a fine array of guest performers. The years since her ...
Karla Bonoff (1ST LP)
If Karla Bonoff's debut album sounded like the sort of record that Linda Ronstadt or James Taylor were making at the same time, that shouldn't have been a surprise: the rhythm section of Leland Sklar and Russell Kunkel was the ...

Tracy Nelson (1974)
It's amazing how many good singers from the early '70s have recorded several worthy albums only to disappear from the scene forever. Tracy Nelson, from the photo on her self-titled album, gives the appearance of just a slip of a ...
Disney Wishes! (2005)
Disney Wishes! is a 15-song offering of something truly special in the Disney catalog. The elegance and simplicity of the Make A Wish Foundation is amazing: to grant terminally ill children a single wish no matter how large or small. ...

||Must Love Dogs (2005)
You'd think that a rom-com soundtrack that begins with Christopher Plummer reciting Yeats' poem "Brown Penny" would be different than your average collection of sweet, sentimental film music. And you'd be right: the soundtrack to Must Love Dogs is certainly ...
Larson's third Warner Bros. album, reissued on CD in Germany but not America, is a bold, melodic collection of midtempo country-inspired pop/rock. Her voice isn't always strong or rich enough to sustain interest in which she's singing, but the diversity ...
