Adieu False Heart

Adieu False Heart by Linda Ronstadt and Ann Savoy

I only loaded this CD into the listening center at the store because my Mom loves old Linda Ronstadt songs and we often like the same music. I was curious to hear something new by her.


I played it for my guy Allen with the cover hidden. His eyes went wide and he heard two songs with rapt attention. Who Is This? he asked. He was as surprised as I was.

I recall reading an interview with Linda saying she wasn't always happy with her singing. In the early days she didn't know that a song could be played in a better key for her voice.
Well, this recording has every key perfect for her voice. She creates such beautiful colors and sounds more free and light. She's completely in love with every note. And the duo of the two women's voices is perfection. The first track alone, with that passionate fiddle, was enough to melt my heart.

One more CD on the 20+ CD wish list. But it cut in line to get to the top of the list.

[Dec: Got a Christmas gift certificate so got the CD right away. It's even better than what I heard on the short samples!]
