    It pains me to write this I have waited for this book since I learned of its inception I own her albums, I ve gone to many a Ronstadt concert Simple Dreams is very light in the details and a slim volume of anything at all new If you ve been a fan of Ronstadt over the years as I have, most assuredly you will know pretty much all of what she has to offer here.Over the years, she had admitted to and discussed her various boyfriends, both long term and short term in articles and interviews It pains me to write this I have waited for this book since I learned of ...

    Let me start by saying that I m a huge fan of Ronstadt s contemporary pop country rock records I still consider Heart Like A Wheel, her 1974 breakthrough album, to be one of my favorite albums Even before HLAW, I was a fan Different Drum, Long Long Time, her work in country music.Having said that, this book turns out to be something of a disappointment, and not because she doesn t provide revealing details about her personal life I was hoping that Ronstadt would give us some real insight i Let me start by saying that I m a huge fan of Ronstadt s contemporary pop country rock records I still consider Heart Like A Wheel, her 1974 breakthrough album, to be one of my favorite albums Even before HLAW, I was a fan Different Drum, Long Long Time, her work in country music.Having said that, this book turns out to be something of a disappointment, and not because she doesn t provide revealing details about her personal life I was hoping that Ronstadt would give us some real insight into her musical career, her recordings and her era However, she zips quickly through all of this Her early solo albums are barely mentioned These records reflect an incredibly talented singer groping for a musical direction and it would have been fascinating to read her own take on this part of her career Even HLAW is dealt with fairly supe...

    She has a unique legacy of music spanning rock, Broadway, traditional American, opera, children s and Mexican songs The book is about that music not about Linda Ronstadt While it says this in the title, I think fans will be disappointed it is a very withholding memoir The content includes snippets about phrasing, vocal range, the sound of vowels, the technology, arrangements, rehearsals and choice of material As close to anything personal are the pages in the beginning about her family an She has a unique legacy of music spanning rock, Broadway, traditional American, opera, children s and Mexican songs The book is about that music not about Linda Ronstadt While it says this in the title, I think fans will be disappointed it is a very withholding memoir The content includes snippets about phrasing, vocal range, the sound of vowels, the technology, arrangements, rehearsals and choice of material As close to anythi...
