22 April 2021 - Linda Ronstadt - You’re No Good

Linda Ronstadt is not an artist you hear about much anymore.  She was HUGE in the 1970's.  She was once called the highest paid woman in rock and roll.

That's probably because a lot of her hits were covers.  Take this one, originally recorded by Dee Dee Warwick in 1963.  Ronstadt's 1975 version went to number one on the Billboard charts, the only time she would reach the summit in her illustrious career.  

The irony is, she doesn't think she sang it very well.  She doesn't like her own biggest hit.  That's OK.  Everyone else does!
