This eclectic collection circa '76-'80 underscores a newfound rock & roll assertiveness in the rootsy rock diva as she gleefully covers material like Chuck Berry's "Back in the U.S.A." and the Stones' "Tumbling Dice." In fact, one can hear the not-so-distant rumbles of the punk rock revolution as Rondstadt gives Deborah Harry a run for her money on "How Do I Make You."
In another context, one also hears the natural Mexicali strains emerging on her beautifully realized version of Roy Orbison's "Blue Bayou," a decade before the two groundbreaking collections of Mexican songs dedicated to her father. Continuing her established practice of introducing the best in singer-songwriters, we have her definitive takes on Warren Zevon's "Poor, Poor Pitiful Me" and Karla Bonoff's haunting "Someone to Lay Down Beside Me."
