Don't Cry Now, her first record for Asylum, solidified Linda Ronstadt's position as one of the day's premiere female pop vocalists and interpreters. This is one of the most exceptional sounding female vocalist recordings of the 1970s. The album spent more than a year on the Billboard charts, and peaked at No. 45. Guest appearances include guitar work by both the Eagles' Glenn Frey and super-sessionman Larry Carlton, as well as harmonica work by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's Jimmy Fadden, bass and drums by Lee Sklar and Russ Kunkel, respectively. And the legendary Sneaky Pete adds tasteful pedal steel accents throughout.
Remastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's version sounds exquisite and reveals every nuance and shade of Ronstadt's voice. Don't Cry Now is part of Mobile Fidelity's effort to present this iconic singer's work as it was meant to be heard.
