A very classic lady singer, humble and sweet of Mexican roots, who revolutionized the music industry from the sixties to the nineties!

What a fantastic story of her and her music, all of it, to be told to everyone who now and in the future will find her in this DVD.

Wonderful documentary about a fabulous singer. Of course, it's a poignant viewing experience due to her not being to sing now, but that sadness is tempered by the sheer joy of reliving her musically diverse career. I liked that many of her songs were sung in their entirety , not just snippets. Linda R is a class act, then and now.

Saw her perform live back in 1971. Was one of the most extraordinary concerts I have ever seen. Don't miss seeing this documentary.

Just a heads up! January 1, 2020, CNN will have this wonderful documentary on in prime time. My family and I have already viewed the documentary. We all agree that Linda has left us a significant number of famous recordings. My favorite is "Your No Good"! That will never leave my hummer in my mind!!

I saw “Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice” when it opened at The Loft. I’m not what you would call a superfan; I own a couple of her greatest hits collections and of course “Canciones de Mi Padre” and a couple of others, but I don’t pretend to know about everything she’s ever done. This documentary certainly made me want to check out a couple of her other albums, though, especially the “new wave” one (“Mad Love”). Who knew she’d done a new wave album, although I shouldn’t be surprised considering she’s tackled just about everything under the sun: country rock, pop, opera, mariachi, American standards, and great and interesting covers of other artists (Buddy Holly’s “That’ll Be The Day”, Tom Petty’s “The Waiting”, The Rolling Stones’ “Tumbling Dice”, Roy Orbison’s “Blue Bayou”, Warren Zevon’s “Poor Poor Pitiful Me”, and so many others.) The documentary does a great job of telling Linda’s story from childhood to the present day, including interviews with family members and fellow musicians (Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, Don Henley, and JD Souther among them.) There are humorous moments throughout, including Linda talking about seeing The Doors in L.A. and thinking they would be such a great band if they would just get rid of their singer! What I find amazing (and sort of heartbreaking) is how hard Ronstadt is on herself; she’ll hear old records of hers and think about ways she could have done things better. Maybe that’s the mark of a great singer, though. After seeing this documentary and watching her induction as a Kennedy Center honoree, it’s clear that no one can hold a candle to that voice.
