Linda Ronstadt What's New on 200g LP from Analogue Productions

Mastered from the Original Master Tapes by Doug Sax and Robert Hadley

Linda Ronstadt was the leading female vocalist in rock 'n' roll when, sensing that it was time to change directions, she starred in the Broadway production of Gilbert & Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance, as well as the accompanying movie. Pirates of Penzance led the singer to a collaboration with bandleader/arranger Nelson Riddle, who arranged and conducted the triple platinum 1983 collection of pop standards What's New.

The pairing resulted in some impeccably-voiced productions from pop's golden age propelled to new heights by Ronstadt's interpretive skills. It was the first in a trilogy of '80s albums Ronstadt recorded with Riddle. What's New was a considerable hit, reaching No. 3 on the charts, where it stayed for five consecutive weeks, with sales to date in excess of three million copies. Ronstadt's next two albums with Riddle followed – Lush Life in 1984) and For Sentimental Reasons in 1986 – also albums of pre-rock standards.

Ronstadt's unrivaled vocals on this Analogue Productions reissue, mastered from the original analog tape by Doug Sax and Robert Hadley, have never sounded richer, with a broader soundstage, and more clarity and detail in the orchestral accompaniment. Made even better with a Stoughton Printing tip-on jacket showcasing the vibrant original cover designed by John Kosh.
