Led by Ronstadt's continually expanding musical tastes, the churn of young songwriters in 70s Southern California and the studio smarts of Peter Asher, the portrait of Ronstadt the artist continues to gain bone and sinew here with the widest selection of material yet covered. Carefully recorded and presented in a manicured guitars-strings-background vocal production style and sprawling, inventive arrangements brought to life by a virtual army of musical contributors, the object was to turn the prism on her rich, multi-faceted voice, providing different contexts for the urgency, anguish and vulnerability that she was so capable of projecting. In terms of pure singing, Prisoner in Disguise may contain the finest vocal performances in her entire catalog of recordings.

While ballads predominate, the sources here are impeccable and she nails them all. Opening with a bravura vocal performance on Neil Young's "Love is a Rose" she indulges her deep love for Motown in a measured version of Smokey Robinson's "Track of My Tears" and a rip-roaring, original-challenging charge through Martha and The Vandellas' "Heat Wave." As was often the case, she chose to name the album after an evocative, bittersweet ballad, here written by J.D. Souther, who also sings harmony on the track. Other highlights include a foray into reggae spiritualism via Jimmy Cliff's "Many Rivers to Cross," a cover of Little Feat’s "Roll Um Easy" (featuring Lowell George on slide guitar), and a pre-Whitney cover of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You," which while lacking Houston’s firepower is still artful and impassioned. A Top Ten hit on both the pop and country album charts, Prisoner in Disguise is a radiant, original example of Ronstadt's taste and virtuosity. © 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 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...

The Best of Neil Young Live

Long ago it became common knowledge that Neil Young—a fan of live albums, having released eight in his solo career since 1973—was building a massive tape library of shows. Like Bob Dylan before him (and Bruce Springsteen after), Young rode herd on a constantly expanding recording library that he first began talking about exploiting in the 1980s.
