I have all four of her albums of standards and love them. If they'd been vinyl, I'd have worn them out by now. Really, really excellent.

Lovely. Last night we re-watched the version of Pirates of Penzance with Linda Ronstadt and Kevin Kline. Just wonderful.

Alas, this doesn't work. She's great with songs from the Great American Songbook, but not with Nelson Riddle, who doesn't let her interpret. Here she looks like a singing Barbie Doll. Riddle did miracles for Frank Sinatra, but paralyzed Ronstadt.

I have to say I agree, with Richard. I put it up because so many people like those two CDs but not me either.
