1. She had such a beautiful voice.

Saw her in concert in mid-80's, her voice just soared. Love her music from back then.

10. Linda Ronstadt hooked me on a lifelong love of female vocalists

Other greats of the time in my opinion were Dusty Springfield, Judith Durham of The Seekers and while I was too cool to like her at the time, Karen Carpenter had a gorgeous voice.

4. Willin'

Prettiest stoner song ever, Lowell George was gone too soon.

Saw Little Feat open for Traffic in mid 70's. Brilliant show start to finish from both bands.

7. She has Parkinson's Disease, leaving her unable to sing due to loss of muscular control

(I don't think she ever had Multiple Sclerosis)

31. I heard an interview in which she stated she noticed vocal changes well before her diagnosis.

A fascinating, but sad story.

6. I was never a Linda Fan back in the 70s

But a guy in my last squadron LOVED Linda Ronstadt - But only in Spanish.

He convinced me that she was never as good in English as she was when she sang the old Mexican songs. She sounds fantastic on this track

I have always loved her voice from the first time I heard it with the Stone Ponys but the CD's she put out in spanish were the best of all.

Have always loved her. Saw her in Minneapolis when I lived there many years ago. She wore a little Cub Scout uniform.

Such a tragedy to lose her song....

27. I can't pick just one

She has been one of my favorite female vocalists forever .... What a huge, clear, true voice ....

Saw her at Kent State when I was a student there in the mid 70s oh my, fantastic. So tragic that she can no longer song.

29. Not a favorite song but my favorite album of her's was...

'What's New'. I'd always really liked a lot of her songs, and would often sing along, but I liked this one so much I juggled the money to buy the cassette when it came out.

30. One of the greatest female vocalists of all time paired with Nelson Riddle for a few albums

I like all the songs on your pick list, but I first heard the old classic Someone to Watch Over Me sung by Linda Ronstadt and it is fabulous.
