Linda Ronstadt - Don't Cry Now

Don't Cry Now (1973) is Linda Ronstadt's fourth release. The tracks on Don't Cry Now were produced individually, some by John Boylan; some by John David Souther; and by British arranger Peter Asher, former member of the 60's folk duo Peter & Gordon. Asher was the head of A&R for Apple Records prior to his move to USA.
The album contains three songs composed by Souther, one by Randy Newman, a cover of a Neil Young ballad, one originally from the Flying Burrito Brothers, and a version of the Eagles' Desperado, which the band had released earlier that year.

Linda was quite the hottie in her day. That inner sleeve photo with the Porky Pig t-shirt is an indelible image in my brain... ;->
