An album that defines virtually everything that is right about adult contemporary pop--and yes, there are a few things--Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind contains lush, orchestrated arrangements of songs by first-rate tunesmiths such as Jimmy Webb, Eric Kaz, Paul Carrack, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weill, Isaac Hayes and Karla Bonoff. Four cuts, including the Grammy-winning "Don't Know Much", feature duets between Ronstadt (still singing with power and assurance even at the top of her range) and angel-voiced Aaron Neville. Other highlights include "Adios", with multi-tracked background vocals by Brian Wilson, and the title song, which is driven to new heights by the Skywalker Symphony Orchestra and the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir. --Daniel Durchholz

This CD, which was released in 1989, is a great collection of twelve great Linda Ronstadt tunes. As a matter of fact, four of them are duets with the great Aaron Neville, and the Skywalker Symphony Orchestra backs all of them up. This is a great CD, one that shows off Ms. Ronstadt's copious talents to good effect. I highly recommend this CD!

Format: Audio CD
"Cry Like A Rainstorm, Howl Like The Wind," upon its 1989 release, went triple platinum, selling better than three million copies, and proved to be one of American pop/rock singer Linda Ronstadt's all-time best sellers, in the third decade of her astonishing career. Ronstadt had won her first Grammy in 1975, on her way to selling more than 48 million albums in the United States and more than 70 million worldwide. "Cry," which was produced by Peter Asher, was a long-running Adult Contemporary #1 that won the singer Grammies in 1989, and 1990. No wonder: so many years into her career, it showcases her still singing with power, feeling and flexibility, still confidently hitting notes at the top of her range.

Ronstadt is widely considered the world's leading female rock and roll vocalist; the first rock diva that could fill an arena. She began her career with the Stone Poneys in the early 1960's -- I, for one, have a treasured vinyl single of her/their "A Different Drum," (written by Mickey Nesmith of the Monkees, meant for a male voice, and forever Ronstadt's). Nevertheless, she's still actively touring today. Try to catch her: I really love her in person and have been lucky enough to do so several times, most memorably her 1988 concert at New York's Town Hall in support of her Spanish language release of that year, Canciones Di Mi Padre.

"Cry" includes four duets with Aaron Neville, unearthly in their beauty. There's Karla Bonoff's "All My Life," "Don't Know Much," by the Brill Building songsters Barry Mann and Cynthia Weill, and Isaac Hayes's "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby." "I Need You" actually rocks a bit: both singers can.

I have over 5000 albums from Abba to ZZ Top, Sinatra, Neil Diamond, classical, rock, pop, soul, folk, reggae and country , and this is far and away my favourite album.

Blissful is perhaps the best description I can offer for the sound. Recorded in full digital at George Lucas' Skywalker Sound, and with full orchestra, choir and Aaron Neville and Brian Wilson The choice of songs is eclectic, and Linda's voice is truly rich expressive and beautiful.

I love this album I hope the uninitiated take the risk to discover what beautiful music this is.

Would love a high-res version please HDTRACKS!

EDIT - HDTRACKS have done one now - sounds even better in 24 bit!

This is one of the most beautiful albums I have ever heard. Ms. Ronstadt's voice is like velvet and capable of the most incredible range. She is accompanied beautifully,on some of the tracks by Aaron Neville,one of the fabulous Neville Brothers.

Its lush, its cheesy and its well over the top but Linda Ronstadt's magnificent voice and sheer musicality works within the genre to create a memorable album. Listen to the way she uses her full dynamic range in 'still within the sound of my voice' to shape the song and convey its emotions. Phenomenal.

'Cry Like a Rainstorm - Howl Like the Wind' is a really great album full of classics past and present with Ronstadt's voice at its truest. I'm also an Aaron Neville fan and so having him duet on a few of the tracks is an added bonus. If you liked her old stuff then you'll enjoy this one as well. I've listened to this album over and over and still enjoy it.
