I'm so shocked and saddened to read her announcement.  She had such an amazing instrument.  And she excelled at so many different genres.

In the History of the Eagles special someone (I don't recall who) when discussing her cover of Desperado said that Linda Ronstadt 'had a voice as big as a house'.  A very apt way to describe her vocal presence back in the day.

Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.

She really surprised her critics when she played Mabel in the (now legendary) Public Theater's production of "The Pirates of Penzance".  Nobody has ever managed to top her in that role.  I pray they find a cure for this horrific disease very, very soon.

had a tremendous crush on her in the 70s and 80s.  Amazing looking lady.  I have an aunt who looks nearly identical to her.   Even now, they favor. 

 

Anyway, wishing the best for her.

Here's my favorite from Linda:

 


There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

I think I fixed it.  It worked for me, but it was playing it twice about a second apart, like some weird stereo version.  There wasn't a genre she tackle that I didn't love her work.  Luckily, we have the recordings.  My thoughts are going out to her and her family and friends.
