February 19, 1977 and Linda Ronstadt wins the Grammy award for Best Pop Female Vocalist for her album "Hasten Down the Wind". The LP was to be her third successive platinum selling album,(she was the first female artist to achieve this) and featured a more contemporary set of songwriters and choices - although the Buddy Holly classic "That'll be the day" is probably the best known track from the set, and the chosen recording for this post. The album featured compositions by Karla Bonoff, Andrew Gold and Warren Zevon.

Linda Ronstadt is one of the most gifted pop vocalists of all time - her range, power and versatility are all testament to her pre-eminent status in the pop world - and her multiple #1 albums and prolific Top 40 statistics as well as 10 Grammy awards back this up. Her choices to explore country, pop, rock, jazz, traditional pop, traditional latin & opera among her genres make her one of a kind in the recording industry. As a young man growing up in the late 70's and early 80's - Linda Ronstadt was the highest profile woman in pop. Her beautiful face and voice were simply everywhere. My love affair had begun 2 years earlier with her breakthrough hit "Your no good", and that adoration has not stopped since. I am excited about posting other Linda Ronstadt gems in the future.
Enjoy!
