Linda Ronstadt was the leading female vocalist in rock'n'roll when, sensing that it was time to change direction, 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 this 1983 collection of pop standards "What's New". It was the first in a trilogy of 1980s 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, and selling to date more than 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.Let's just say that the 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. Such a sweet record, made even better with a Stoughton Printing tip-on jacket showcasing the vibrant original cover designed by John Kosh. You'll settle in for some impeccably-voiced standards from pop's golden age and be transfixed by Ronstadt's interpretive skills.
