STUNNING 1984 BROADCAST BY LINDA RONSTADT WITH THE NELSON RIDDLE ORCHESTRA
Having released over 30 studio albums and 15 compilations to date, and charted 38 Billboard Hot 100 singles, with 21 reaching the top
40, 10 in the top 10, three at number 2, and one chart topper, Linda Ronstadt remains among the most successful American performers
of all time, having sold over 100 million records in her lengthy career.
In 1983, wishing to diversify, Ronstadt had enlisted the help of 62-year-old orchestral band-leader and conductor, Nelson Riddle. The two
embarked on an unorthodox and original approach to rehabilitating the ‘Great American Songbook’, recording a trilogy of traditional pop albums: What's New (1983) Lush Life (1984) and For Sentimental Reasons (1986), cumulatively sold almost seven million copies in the US alone.
Following the release of What’s New, Linda, with Riddle and his band in tow, put on a number of concerts in the US, showcasing the first two albums of the trilogy, and on March 9th 1984, at Santa Barbara’s Arlington Theater, they performed a stunning set which was broadcast across FM radio along the West Coast. One of the finest performances of the short tour, this previously unreleased recording is now available in its entirety on this CD for the first time.
