L. Ronstadt, 1977: Crazy

Yes, Owen Bradley’s recorded production of Patsy’s performance is without equal. Her control and what I’d describe as painful restraint are as much the message as the words and melody. So this post is not your invitation state the obvious.

But oh, Linda …

Listen to the original version of "Blue Bayou" by Roy Orbison-

Then listen to the Linda Ronstadt version-

And you'll be groveling at her feet.


Yes, I know that performance is from The Muppet Show but the frog chorus is perfect and I can't listen to the regular version without missing the rhythmic "Ribbit"s from that one.

Linda is the real deal, beautiful voice, perfect intonation, great control with expression, and she was a real hottie back in the day. My post pubescence baby brother had her poster on his wall. I think if you compare her live version to Patsy Cline's live version most would agree it holds up pretty well. At least, I think it does.

"Blue Bayou" is my all-time favorite Linda Ronstadt song - I swoon whenever I hear it. It absolutely beats the everlovin' @#$%& out of Orbison's version.

It's my second favorite of her songs. My favorite is "Long Long Time"-

Thanks, that was great!
I have to say though, what happens to the sound @1:24 almost hurts my ears… weird.

Did you notice how none of the singers in the tribute came close to her?

I’ve had a crush on her since I became aware of her music at age 10 (1974). Beautiful voice with the looks to match it.



I sit on a man’s back, choking him and making
him carry me, and yet assure myself and others
that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his
lot by all possible means — except by getting off
his back. - Leo Tolstoy, novelist and Philosopher
(1828-1910)

While I agree with all of the great Linda takes, some of the unusual stuff (Riddle, Canciones, Gilbert and Sullivan) made her even more remarkable.

Then there were the collaborations:

High Sierra with Linda, Emmylou, and Dolly

If you already haven't, check out the Trio albums by these three ladies - they are amazing, especially the first one.

I've long owned Ronstadt's trio of American standards albums - they were probably my very first foray into a genre I now listen to regularly and enjoy greatly.

I have been remiss in procuring her albums of Mexican standards, many of which I grew up listening to. I've been meaning to for years, but have never just gotten around to it. I think this thread will push me over to Amazon...



It is what it is.

It was near the end of the DVD. It was about 5 current female country singers at possibly one of the award shows singing one of Linda's songs. It didn't play the actual complete tribute; just a few minutes of it.

It was the '70s and i was a little kid, and I can vividly recall a hazy, Vaseline-smudged camera filter, and an image of Ronstadt singing "Blue Bayou," my little kid emotions getting all roiled up inside.
