By the mid-70s, Linda Ronstadt and producer Asher had achieved a consistency with her albums, becoming almost clairvoyant in mixing material from a variety of sources, in styles ranging from art house esoteric to radio ready, into a coherent whole that continued to satisfy existing fans and win enthusiastic new converts. After her vocals and innate gift for unerring phrasing, it's the incomparable songwriting that's allowed these records to age so gracefully. Two major talents in the SoCal songwriting universe, Karla Bonoff and Warren Zevon, are elemental to the success of Hasten Down the Wind. Bonoff is heard in the moody bookends of opener "Lose Again," and closer "Someone to Lay Down Beside Me." And Zevon's dark ballad, here turned into a gentle lament with Don Henley singing harmony, serves as the album's title track.

The Grammy winning collection is anchored by a pair of sure-fire covers. Ronstadt confidently eases into Willie Nelson's "Crazy," putting her stamp on Patsy Cline's most emblematic hit with phrasing and a vocal timbre that are memorably distinct from Cline. Another example of Ronstadt's joyous way with the hits of her youth lies in her romping version of Buddy Holly's "That'll Be the Day." While she would go on in the 1980s to famously breathe new energy into the Great American Songbook with Nelson Riddle, her now classic 70s albums have become a compendium of enduring pop/rock songwriting from a similarly fertile pool of creativity. © 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...

Fleetwood Mac: The Blues Period

Fleetwood Mac led two consecutive lives: a blues-driven outfit from the 1960s led by Peter Green, one of the greatest guitarists of his generation, and another, a pop-rock band that became one of the most acclaimed groups of its era. Their 1977 album, “Rumours”, remains, forty years later, one of the best-selling records of all time and yet the band’s lesser-known early years are no less captivating.

Flamenco: The Unending Dance & Unwavering Song

On November 16th 2010, UNESCO officially recognised flamenco as a universal form of art by inscribing it on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The United Nations gave cante jondo (the deep, primitive singing of flamenco) a contemporary stature, exceeding its historical and ethnic origins.
