    Linda is my favorite female vocalists. After I saw this back when, I went crate digging to buy her albums in this style of song. Love the standards. And Nelson Riddle was the best. I have several of his early LPs.

    I learned that Linda had to relearn how to sing because singing standards, especially ones written by Nelson Riddle take a whole different set of muscles and she had to relearn, the intonation, holding her breath and all the other things to sing these kind of songs. I wish I had been there to see this concert live. I'm one person who though I grew up in the 60's and 70's learned to appreciate the standards of the 30's and 40's.

    The singers opened the eyes of many starry eyed young people back then and I love to hear these songs again and again. I'm glad that Linda and Nelson consented to this being recorded, because Nelson Riddle is gone now and Linda Ronstadt cannot sing anymore because of a disease that has struck her vocal chords. I miss her new coming out but glad that we have her recordings to cherish.

    Always so sweet and shy. The first time I saw her (Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, 1975) in concert, she was like a little girl blushing from a great deal of attention. This powerful singing voice was followed by a soft, childlike voice saying "Thank you" after belting out "Lose Again." She sent zillions of chills down my spine then, and these recordings do nothing to warm them.

    Sad that Linda has the complication of Parkinson's and cannot sing any longer – at her own admission….. however, what a legacy she leaves behind her !!

    This woman could sing anything.. from folk music (Dylan etc), to country rock (Eagles etc), pop music, Gilbert & Sullivan (on Broadway). Mexicana (Las Canciones de ma padre), to this, (The Great American Songbook) with one of the maestro arrangers, namely Nelson Riddle….

    I fear she will only be truly recognised as THE finest American female singer, after she has departed this mortal coil …. and I know that, in the centenary of Ella's birth this will seem to be sacrilege but, she is a much greater all-round singer than Ella Fitzgerald…!

    I had no idea there had been a concert of these songs. the 3 cds she made of standards are among my favorite music to listen to. I'm shocked to have stumbled accross this. and to see Nelson himself conducting his own arrangements.
    R.I.P Nelson. you were the best! only regret is that this concert wasn't recorded in stereo.
    thank you for posting it.

    This is not "complete".  The encore performance ("Desperado", which brought down the house) is not included.

    Truly, one of the greatest singing voices in recorded history, and one of the great arrangers of all time! What a combination. Ronstadt & Riddle!!!

    Her vocal technique and timbre remind me much of Martina McBride who would obviously be the epigone here.

    I was fortunate enough to attend this concert at the Arlington Theater in Santa Barbara back in '83. Amazing show from the beginning when they opened the curtains on the Nelson Riddle Orchestra to the very end with "Good-Bye". What made the evening even more special was that the majority of the audience was appropriately dressed in period attire. We even borrowed a friends car from the 1940's to attend. Linda's voice lives on forever with her range of genres and mesmerizing tone. Always wished I could meet her in person. (Linda – Are you reading this?). Watching this video was like reliving a dream!

    I'm approaching 80 years old and was busy working and raising a family back when this fantastic talent was popular. Didn't spend a lot of time listening to music.  Being pretty much confined at home for the last 10 years with by bride of 61 years who has Alzheimer I have enjoyed listening to a lot of music.  I had heard of Linda Ronstadt and of her great talent but  today is the first time I really discovered her for myself. There are some greats out there but this lady has made her way to the top of my list. I feel so fortunate to have found her for myself .  I understand she no longer sings due to health reasons.   What a loss! So thankful for the YouTube recordings.

    That was amazing. She has always been a favorite, but I am only just discovering her depth of talent. As someone said earlier, it will never disappear. Thank you, Linda.

    Criticism: when Linda sings with the other three ladies, their choreography is all messed up and amateuristic.

    Disappointing that Linda didn't do a better job with that.

    Otherwise, the singing is great.

    Sooo Good! Live in concert with a magical orchestra, singing beautiful tunes with no lasers or auto tune and backing tracks.

    make no mistake, IMO, this was a music history changer. It introduced this eternal music by the most accomplished musicians, to a new audience- Long live the classics

    Her versatility is amazing! Rocker, Mexican balladeer, and Big Band Front Person! All done with grace, professionalism and a modesty that makes her both memorable and loved by her fans. I support her in her fight…life can be so unfair!

    Her singing voice was warm, strong, sad and joyous. Simply a gorgeous tone and super arrangements. Opened our rockin' ears to a different sound with Nelson. The only girl singer I can listen to over and over – no matter what style she sang she captured and soothed the toughest part of our hearts.

    Ronstadt's trio of albums with Nelson Riddle were my gateway drug into the Great American Songbook, and for that I thank them.

    This is perfection. The sad thing is that Nelson Riddle had a year left to live.
