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

To celebrate 20 years since the release of her film “The Virgin Suicides”, Qobuz takes a look back at some of the top musical moments from the films of Sofia Coppola, like her collaborations with French duo Air or Thomas Mars from the band Phoenix.

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...

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.
