There's a certain cosmic symmetry to the fact that Linda Ronstadt and her mighty voice—which were never captured on an official live record during her 70s and 80s heyday—have shot up the sales charts via a live soundtrack to an April 1980 HBO special at a time when Parkinson's disease has cruelly extinguished her ability to sing.

Recorded sound from television shows is notorious for being compromised and having limited dynamic range, and here those problems still exist but happily the sound in a 24-bit/96kHz stereo transfer which was given a "very minor burnishing," according to reissue producer John Boylan, is very good. The major tweak: bringing up Ronstadt's voice in the mix.

Live in Hollywood's 12 tracks (culled by Ronstadt from the film's 20 song set) were wisely selected to emphasize her 70s hits. Driven by an energetic crowd, the entire performance snaps into focus immediately, with opener "I Can't Let Go." Another big plus here is the obvious chemistry amongst a band featuring guitarist Danny Kortchmar, Little Feat keyboardist Bill Payne and drummer Russ Kunkel. Buddy Holly's "It's So Easy," Lowell George's "Willin'" and Roy Orbison's "Blue Bayou" (her perennial knockout punch) are all here in near-definitive versions. Ronstadt, who has often said she sings better after she's been onstage for awhile, audibly cranks up the tempos and intensity for the trio of "You're No Good," "How Do I Make You" and Chuck Berry's "Back in the USA," before closing with a masterful rendition of her signature ballad "Desperado," accompanied only by Payne's piano, Finally, nearly 40 years later, we have a tight, rockin', supremely musical example of Ronstadt at her peak. © Robert Baird / Qobuz

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.

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.
