    This 1971 album--the third solo outing by the former Stone Poneys vocalist (the Stone Poneys scored a big hit with Mike Nesmith's "Different Drum" in 1967)--established Linda Ronstadt as one of the leading lights of the West Coast country-rock scene of the early '70s. Given sympathetic accompaniment by musicians like pedal steel guitarist Sneaky Pete and future Eagles Glen Frey, Bernie Leadon, Randy Meisner, and Don Henley, Ronstadt's rich, expressive voice works wonders on this fine collection of folk-influenced country-rock.
    Capturing the same laid-back, cosmic country feel as the Flying Burrito Brothers, Emmylou Harris, and the early Eagles, Ronstadt takes songs like Jackson Browne's "Rock Me On The Water," Neil Young's "Birds," Eric Andersen's "I Ain't Always Been Faithful," and country standards like "I Fall To Pieces," and makes them her own. Though she would go on to become one of the biggest rock stars of the decade, she would rarely make music that was as honest, heartfelt or satisfying as that on LINDA RONSTADT.
