Biography

With roots in the Los Angeles country and folk-rock scenes, Linda Ronstadt became one of the most popular interpretive singers of the '70s, earning a string of platinum-selling albums and Top 40 singles. Throughout the '70s, her laid-back pop never lost sight of her folky roots, yet as she moved into the '80s, she began to change her sound with the times, adding new wave ...

5.0 out of 5 stars End of the beginning 6 May 2004
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Although this contains more rock and less country than her previous albums, it has more of a country feel to it than much of the music coming out of Nashville in recent years. This was Linda's fourth solo album - she had also recorded some with the Stone Poneys - but although it was her best selling album up to that point in her career, it did not make her a big star - that happened as a result of the album after this, Heart like a wheel. This album is fairly mellow, being mainly a mix of ballads and mid-tempo songs with only a couple of up-tempo songs (Silver threads and golden needles, The fast one).
The songs include three originals (I can almost see it, Don't cry now, The fast one) written by John David Souther, a songwriter that provided Linda with songs during the seventies. Love has no pride (co-written by Eric Kaz, another songwriter whose songs Linda made good use of) has also been covered by Bonnie Raitt.
The album includes plenty of great covers including Desperado (Eagles), Sail away (Randy Newman), Colorado (Flying Burrito Brothers), Everybody loves a winner (William Bell) and I believe in you (Neil Young).
This album includes Linda's second recording of Silver threads and golden needles, a country standard first recorded by Wanda Jackson, which became a top twenty American hit for the Springfields in the early sixties. Linda originally recorded the song on Hand sown home grown, which I've already reviewed.
This album, on vinyl, was my introduction to Linda's music and it remains one of my favorites. Linda has recorded many different types of album and you need eclectic tastes (like Linda and I do) to enjoy them all. To enjoy this one, you need to like mellow country rock music, such as you can hear on the early Eagles albums.

I owned this on vinyl in the 70s (wore it out). Still sounds fresh and is one of her best albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Linda Ronstadt's First Hit Record 6 Jan 2002
By Matt Coker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
While it took HEART LIKE A WHEEL to make Linda Ronstadt rock's first female superstar, DON'T CRY NOW was her first certified hit record. DON'T CRY NOW peaked at #45 on the charts and was certified Gold, which was a large improvement (in commercial terms) over her previous recordings. It was also her first record on David Geffen's Asylum label, though HEART LIKE A WHEEL, released the following year, was issued by Capitol Records. Ronstadt's style had changed noticeably over her previous two albums. The breathtaking-roots-country approach of SILK PURSE had been replaced by a smoother country sound on LINDA RONSTADT. With DON'T CRY NOW, most of the country influence is toned-down (the steel guitar is used frequently, but the fiddle appears only on "Silver Threads And Golden Needles"). In 1973, many reviewers commented that if Linda Ronstadt would become a pure country singer, she'd be the industry's best. The soft-rock sound of DON'T CRY NOW is magnificent, it reminds me somewhat of Carole KIng's TAPESTRY, but DON'T CRY NOW has a more forceful style. Its one of Linda Ronstadt's most richly emotional albums. J.D. Souther takes full production command on four of the album's songs (three of which are his own), working with John Boylan (who produced her 1972 album) on two and Peter Asher (who she'd work with from 1974 to the early 1990s) on another two. Boylan takes the helm solo on two additional tracks. Ronstadt cuts three of Souther's songs on this album, she had never recorded any of his tunes prior to DON'T CRY NOW, but he would remain a notable presence on her work through the 1970s. Souther's "I Can Almost See It" opens the record with a subtle harmonica introduction. The recording is remarkable, though the song didn't chart well. "Love Has No Pride" did. Linda Ronstadt delivers the definitive version, using her skills as music's finest torch singer to bring additional emotional resonance to the recording. "Love Has No Pride" was produced by John Boylan. The country warhorse "Silver Threads And Golden Needles" had already been featured on Ronstadt's solo debut HAND SOWN...HOME GROWN is all-stops out rock/country (I mean it literally) arrangement. The DON'T CRY NOW version is superior, the album's only pure-country recording, one of the two uptempo songs on the album, produced by Boylan and Souther. Herb Pedersen, who was indispensable in the alternative country scene of the 1970s contributes harmony vocals and acoustic guitar. Its one of my favorite Linda Ronstadt songs, either version, but I like this one just a little bit better. The Eagles had used "Desperado" as the thread for their sophomore album, an unsuccessul concept album of the same name. Their recording of the song is an Eagles classic. Ronstadt offers a soulful rendition far greater than the original, and hers succeeds without the western connections of surrounding songs Souther's finest composition on the album is the title track, which Ronstadt gives a powerful edge through her extraordinary voice and singing skills. Like "I Can Aklmost See It", "Don't Cry Now" was a brand new composition at the time of recording. Peter Asher would be at the helm of her rock records from HEART LIKE A WHEEL to CRY LIKE A RAINSTORM-HOWL LIKE THE WIND (I'm not sure who produced MAS CANCIONES and FRENESI, though I think it was Asher). He co-produces "Sail Away" and "I Believe In You" with J.D. Souther. Randy Newman's "Sail Way" is a brilliant composition, but Ronstadt has been criticized severley for her version of the song. Ronstadt delivers a soulful rendition with some gospel overtones, but the ironic humor of Newman's original is missing. So what. Ronstadt's performing energy makes this track a worthwhile listen. "Colorado" was one of the few notable tracks on the Flying Burrito Brothers first post-Gram Parsons album. Rick Roberts, who played a crucial role in the discovery of Emmylou Harris, composed the song; a gentle sorrow-filled tune, which is given an exceptional reading on DON'T CRY NOW, produced by Boylan. I've always felt that Souther's song "The Fast One" was somewhat of a missed opportunity; there are exceptional pieces to the song, but the verse/chorus and the bridge aren't well-matched. Ronstadt version of the song, however, is excellent. William Bell had made a classic out of "Everybody Loves A Winner" and Ronstadt offers a marvelous rendition of the song. Boylan and Souther produced this song which features a horn arrangement. Neil Young's exceptional "I Believe In You" is the album's best song, and the best album closer in Linda Ronstadt's catalog. Ronstadt's vocal is filled with emotion as it rings out among the marveous string arrangement and breathtaking chorus. This is the definitive recording. It took me a while to enjoy DON'T CRY NOW, mainly because of the lack of uptempo material, but after I listened to it a couple times I think of it as an essentiaal. Not to mention a crucial step in Linda Ronstadt's path to superstardom.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific remaster worth the extra $$ for Ronstadt fans. 23 Aug 2007
By Wayne Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A transitional album for Linda Ronstadt in sound only, "Don't Cry Now" has more of a country-rock sound than later albums. Her first recording for Asylum, "Don't Cry Now" gets the deluxe reissue that it always deserved. The recording doesn't sound compressed or like it has been brickwalled pumping out volume at the expense of the dynamic range of the original recording.

Shawn Brittan does a marvelous job remastering this classic album. The album is a limited, numbered edition and is presented in a replica of its original gatefold sleeve (as with The Allman Brothers "Idlewind South" Mofi reissue). Like Steve Hoffman's excellent remaster of her Greatest Hits collection, "Don't Cry Now" has all of the advantages of CD without the disadvantages of most modern remasters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ronstadt coming into her own 20 Jun 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I first discovered Linda Ronstadt with this album, one of those that defined Country Rock in the 1970's, and it started my tremendous admiration for this wonderful artist with the purest, loveliest voice in pop/rock/country/mariachi (whatever she chooses to sing). She would acquire a lot more finesse, subtlety and sophistication later on, but there are still some unforgettable gems on this work. "Colorado" is a wonderful showcase for her voice in all its honey-sweet purity, and her version of "Desperado" is on an equal footing with The Eagles original, and certainly more vocally powerful. "Love Has No Pride" and "Don't Cry Now" are great ballad powerhouses for her also. All in all, a strong indication of what was to come, and an album that still largely holds up quite well today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Linda in 1973 11 Aug 2002
By Dee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Still a relatively young artist, she had not hit her stride yet. After listening to many of the albums from her repertoire, I have to say that this is her best one so far. The album is one of her most emotional and solemn, even more than her classic "Hasten Down the Wind'. It opens with the brilliant Harmonica driven "I Can Almost See it" and you can almost feel her heartbreak. "Love Has No Pride" is a torch singer's pride, she rips this one to shreds with her honesty and leaves no prisoners. She provides a good version of "Silver Threads and Golden Needles' but alittle too bluegrass driven, Janis Joplin's version is a little more superior. "Desperado" is the best song on this record and possibly the best in her whole catalog. The title track is just beautiful, she sings it so nicely with her friend Wendy on the harmonization. "Sail Away" is a definite miss, the chorus behind her is uplifting but this one drags. "Colorado" is a almost visual masterpiece and she almost melts your heart with her vocals. "The Fast One" is one of the two uptempos on this album and the best out of both of them. This one is cool. "Everybody Loves A Winner" is another winner. It's heartbreak in the lyrics but you can sense some optimism. She's a great interpreter. If you're looking for uplifting Linda, check "Get Closer" but if you want ball and chain carrying, heartrending Linda. Definately buy this one and "Hasten Down the Wind". Bow down to one of the greatest vocalists of our time.
