Don't Cry Now
Don't Cry Now, her first for Asylum was released in 1973 and would help solidify Linda Ronstadt as one of the premiere female pop vocalists for the next two decades. This is one of the most exceptional sounding female vocalist recordings of the 1970's.
After her breakthrough on Capitol Records with The Stone Poneys (Different Drum) plus some acclaimed solo releases, Linda Ronstadt jumped to David Geffen's bourgeoning Asylum roster, joining The Eagles and Jackson Browne to form the genesis of the "California Country-Rock" sound.
Various tracks were produced by John Boylan, J.D. Souther; and, for the first time in what would be a long and highly successful relationship, British musician (Peter & Gordon) Peter Asher. The album spent more than a year on the Billboard chart and peaked at No.45. Featured hit singles are the Eagles' "Desperado," Bonnie Raitt's "Love Has No Pride," Randy Newman's sly observation on slavery and southern culture "Sail Away" plus a nod to both Dusty Springfield and the Grand Ole Opry with "Silver Threads and Golden Needles."
Guest appearances include guitar work by both the Eagles' Glenn Frey and super-sessionman Larry Carlton, plus harmonica by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's Jimmy Fadden, bass and drums by L.A."A-teamers" Lee Sklar and Russ Kunkel respectively, plus last but certainly not least, the legendary Sneaky Pete adding his tasteful pedal steel throughout.
