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

The Prince of the 80s

In the family of funk Prince Rogers Nelson was a genre all by himself. In 40 years of career, he managed to mix the legacy of the founding fathers (James Brown, Sly Stone and George Clinton) with influences like rock 'n' roll, electro and even jazz. An exuberant and stunning groove that shone mainly between 1978 and 1988...

Charles Aznavour: Let The Show Begin!

Charles Aznavour’s life can be summed up with two words: “song” and “comedy”. Very much like a passionate craftsman, the 94-year-old interpreter gave everything he had to show business. So much so that he has made this theme one of the pillars of his work.

New Order: From Darkness to Dance-floor

How does one Mancunian group move from perhaps the gloomiest band of the punk era to a master of the dance-floor? In the early eighties, straight out of Joy Division’s ashes, New Order marked one of the first successful unions of rock’n’roll and dance music. A perfect soundtrack for a morose, Thatcherite England.
