Album of the Day
Live in Hollywood
Linda Ronstadt released more than two dozen studio albums during her stellar five-decade career but surprisingly never released a live album – until now. The new LIVE IN HOLLYWOOD includes 12 of the singer's favorite performances from a 1980 concert recorded for an acclaimed HBO television special. For the show, she was joined by an outstanding band: guitarists Kenny Edwards and Danny Kortchmar, drummer Russ Kunkel, bassist Bob Glaub, keyboardist Billy Payne (of Little Feat fame), pedal steel guitarist Dan Dugmore and backing vocalist Wendy Waldman. The hit-packed set list includes "Blue Bayou," "Poor Poor Pitiful Me," "It's So Easy," "You're No Good" and a trio of Top Ten hits from the then-current MAD LOVE album. LIVE IN HOLLYWOOD captures Linda Ronstadt at the peak of her reign as America's most popular female rock singer.
