Reading Rick's assessment 40 years or so on I agree with what he writes. A cohesive band could've played these songs better but I still love his voice! Listen to Firefall's C.D's where his talents come to some kind of fruition!

2.0 out of 5 stars excellent arrangements too, 11 April 2017
This review is from: Carousel (Audio CD)
I have 2 other C.D's by Gerry and virtually all of his recordings as part of America. Sadly Gerry's voice, (which has always been an acquired taste?), is now much weaker than formerly and very breathy. The very accomplished session musicians, excellent arrangements too, really do swamp his voice on most tracks. I've played it 3 times now and apart from the track written by Jerry Rafferty it all seems to lack melody, something that Gerry's writing formerly had in abundance. The vocal balance with Dewey Bunnell (1/2 of America) is missing and thus the solo voice is insufficient to me to carry these songs.
Maybe I'll like it more with repeated plays, but I really am very disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars She's an amazing interpreter and singer, 11 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: What's New (Audio CD)
I absolutely adore Linda Ronstadt and have many of her C.D.s. She's an amazing interpreter and singer, Here comes the but --- I think the Nelson Riddle arrangements swamp the songs and to an extant her vocals - not that her voice isn't wonderful it's just that the arrangements are too much and intrude! 'What's New' is taken so slowly it becomes a dirge, with this wonderful voice frustrated by a ridiculously slow tempo.

I don't know whether its solely the arrangements or the choice of song - but generally she has impeccable taste in choosing material - Try 'Heart like A Wheel' and you couldn't do better. Maybe it's my ears have gone, maybe I should try again and listen more intently? I so want to like it but it doesn't work for me.
