Producers: George Massenburg, Steve Tyrell, Peter Asher, Linda Ronstadt. Recorded at The Site and Skywalker Ranch, Marin County, California; Conway Recorders, Los Angeles, California between June & September 1993. Making the transition back to pop, Linda Ronstadt followed a series of forays into her Mexican musical heritage with a collection of well-crafted songs, mostly from the '60s and '70s. It's a similar approach to her early solo records, but here the result is less rock 'n' roll and more adult contemporary. Ms. Ronstadt has always had excellent taste in songs to cover, and this tradition continues in WINTER LIGHT, a meticulously crafted and performed record featuring a solid group of session musicians, including her frequent rhythm section of Russ Kunkel and Leland Sklar. Many of these songs are by the finest writers and songwriting teams of the past 30 years, including Brian Wilson, Bacharach/David, Jimmy Webb, and Goffin/King. Her version of "Don't Talk (Put Your Head on My Shoulder)" from the Beach Boys immortal PET SOUNDS perfectly captures the song's intimacy and poignancy. She offers an appropriately torchy version of Bacharach/David's "I Just Don't Know What to Do with Myself" and also covers "It's Too Soon to Know" by Deborah Chessler, a doo-wop-era songwriter and one of early rock 'n' roll's most unknown legends.
