@NYCLatinaMeSometimes we're too young to know and sometimes we're too old.


I was a Ronstadt fan years ago and she was a big deal.


Now I'm on the other end of the age continum -  I doubt I can list 5 current singers that are big deals ---  and definitely not 5 that are big deals to me personally.

She could sing anything. Her "What's New" album with Nelson Riddle was one of her best.

Linda is truly the queen - amazing voice and huge talent!  Bonnie is another favorite and right on in what she says about Linda.  So sad that she is in poor health.

I must have played that entire album 1 million times!!  Loved it.


On my Cox Cable I have a station that plays her (and her contemporaries of American standards music) that I exercise to each day.  I just listened to her sing "what's new" this morning.  Loved every minute!!

I have to give her a lot of credit for getting as popular as she was. She was an unknown Latina woman singing in a male-dominated music industry.  That must have been some battle.
