This is Linda Ronstadt's very first solo recording after the breakup of the Stone Poney's. Released in 1969, it's also the first record featured her first backup band, the legendary Swampwater with Gib Guilbeau. For more information on Swampwater take a look at the label Swampwater. The music on the record itself is a mixture of some kind of country/folk style.
