Silk Purse by Linda Ronstadt


Silk Purse is the second solo album by Linda Ronstadt, released in March 1970, a year after the release of her first solo set, Hand Sown ... Home Grown. It was recorded at Woodland Recording Studios in Nashville, the only Ronstadt album recorded in the country music capital, and it was produced by Elliot Mazer, who had previously worked with Richie Havens, Gordon Lightfoot, James Cotton, Rufus Thomas, Chubby Checker and Frank Sinatra and who had been recommended to Linda by her friend Janis Joplin.
