Although J.D. Souther produced most of Don’t Cry Now, Linda Ronstadt’s fourth solo album, it was Peter Asher (brought in to helm a pair of tunes: "Sail Away," and "I Believe in You") who proved to be this album’s most career-changing effect. A onetime half of the British duo Peter and Gordon as well as A&R head for The Beatles’ Apple Records, Asher and the then still-emerging artist Ronstadt had an instantaneous natural connection which empowered a string of classic smooth Southern California-styled country rock records. Derided by some as too calculated and polished, they nevertheless made Ronstadt a star and with Don’t Cry Now, started her 70s run as an award show and singles chart mainstay.

Assembling an all-star group of musicians from Southern California, Memphis and Nashville that included guitarist Larry Carlton, pedal steel player Buddy Emmons, singer Glenn Frey, keyboardist Spooner Oldham and drummer Russ Kunkel guaranteed a solid musical foundation. Besides impeccable taste in material, Asher and Ronstadt’s secret weapon was the plethora of new material to choose from coming from young SoCal-based writers like Souther, Frey, Don Henley, Randy Newman and Neil Young. While "Love Has No Pride" and her exquisite negotiation of Glenn Frey and Don Henley’s "Desperado" became permanent parts of her live set, it was "Silver Threads and Golden Needles," first recorded four years earlier on Hand Sown… Home Grown, that became a Top 20 country hit. The wild card here is Newman’s "Sail Away," complete with pedal steel and Ronstadt singing over a female gospel choir. An intriguing start to an influential partnership. © Robert Baird / Qobuz

Neil Young in 10 albums

It’s hard to shout “Rock’n’roll will never die!” without sounding like an idiot. But Neil Young can pull it off. Easily. For over half a century, the Canadian legend has proved himself to be one of the greatest songwriters of his generation, constantly renewing himself and taking rock’n’roll down both rustic and rougher paths. The proof lies in these ten albums.

The Women of Nashville

It's not easy to elbow your way through the macho Music City scene, the birthplace of country music, when you're a woman. Over the years, some of them have nevertheless managed to shift lines and attitudes, like these ten pioneers and revolutionaries who have put – even stamped – their boots on Nashville's table.

Alice Cooper Doesn’t Run from Danger

The Alice Cooper story is, first and foremost, an extraordinary tale of “split personality”. Like something straight out of “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde”, singer Vincent Furnier surrendered to the domination of showman Alice Cooper. But by his own admission, the man who always speaks of “Alice” in the third person in interviews remains a simple, completely normal guy in private, far from the stage where he enacts his excesses and provocations. Throughout a career stretching over 50 years, there is an evident streak of schizophrenia in his many stylistic changes. While we credit him with the invention of shock rock, he has ventured into almost every genre with varying degrees of success, from pop to nascent hard rock, with forays into heavy metal, new wave and industrial…
