 Linda Ronstadt was the leading female vocalist in rock 'n' roll when, sensing that it was time to chdirections, 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 the triple platinum 1983 collection of pop standards What's New.

 

The pairing resulted in some impeccably-voiced productions from pop's golden age propelled to new heights by Ronstadt's interpretive skills. It was the first in a trilogy of '80s 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, with sales to date in excess of 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.

 

Ronstadt's unrivaled 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. Made even better with a Stoughton Printing tip-on jacket showcasing the vibrant original cover designed by John Kosh.
