Welcome to the club, Frank.
Yes, apparently Linda's idea of "retirement" is to go on a summer
tour, mostly in the big-band style of WHAT'S NEW, though on one
occasion she will work with the mariachis, and on another--Telluride
in Colorado--she will guest with longtime pal Emmylou Harris doing
As for her record company, to my knowledge she is still with
Elektra, where she has been since 1972. All of us Linda Ronstadt
fans are constantly guessing what exactly she will do next. Two
projects seem to be in the offing: a jazz ensemble album, and an
acoustic Americana one. Which one comes first, of course, is up to
Linda herself. But it'll be interesting. Stay tuned!
P.S.: For another side of Linda, pick up the all-star Cajun tribute
album EVANGELINE MADE. Linda sings harmonies with noted Cajun
musicologist Ann Savoy on two tracks.
