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

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.

And then Nirvana Killed Rock

Thirty-four years ago, Nirvana was born: the most unexpected punk swerve of the end of the 20th century. A rocketing career, international hits, hordes of fans and a tragic epilogue for this worldwide phenomenon. And what if Kurt Cobain’s band was none other than the last band in the history of rock? The ultimate generational phenomenon of genre, if not its last myth.
