    One song that never became well known that I really liked by her was Adios, circa 1990. And not too many albums ever that were better than Heart Like a Wheel

    While bowing to her singing prowess, I've never been a huge fan. "Different Drum" and the above "You're No Good" being exceptions. The band put together for this performance is spectacular with Danny Kortchmor, Russ Kunkel, Billy Payne and Kenny Edwards amongst others are all top notch players.

    Setting aside her vocal talents, I think one reason she is so beloved is that most of her contemporaries find her to be a really good person.

    A recent LA Times profile included an interesting quote from one of the producers of both the Ronstadt documentary film and the David Crosby documentary (actor James Keach).

    Keach, who also produced this year’s “David Crosby: Remember My Name,” acknowledges it was far easier to find people willing to sing Ronstadt’s praises than Crosby’s.

    “Doing the Crosby doc, a lot of his contemporaries felt like the experience he put them through was very rough on their relationships, so ultimately those folks didn’t really want to talk about how they felt,” Keach says. “Whereas with Linda, anyone you wanted to remotely interview was, like, ‘Sign me up!’”

    David Crosby pretty much burned all his bridges....and Ronstadt has been a delight....as the charm in the New Yorker article really comes through....
