Linda Ronstadt is one of the most popular and versatile singers in all of music, bridging multiple genres and styles with great success. She has a long history of collaborations with such varied artists as Aaron Neville, Emmylou Harris, Don Henley, Frank Sinatra, James Taylor, Dolly Parton, James Ingram and more. The album will arrive in Australia the day after Ronstadt is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 10. The honour recognises her role as a pioneering female artist and pays tribute to her exceptional musical legacy, which has earned 10 Grammy® Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards and one Emmy®. Last year, Ronstadt released her best-selling memoir Simple Dreams and also revealed that she had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, which left her unable to sing. Although her singing voice may have been silenced, this collection shows why her songs never will be. This 15-song collection spotlights many of the pioneering singer's most memorable collaborations, including Aaron Neville, Emmylou Harris And James Ingram, as well as one previously unreleased duet with Laurie Lewis. Several songs on this collection are also Grammy winners. Ronstadt won her first in 1976 for a cover of Hank Williams' I Can't Help It (If I'm Still In Love With You) that featured Emmylou Harris and appeared on what many consider her masterwork, Heart Like a Wheel (1974). Another Grammy-winner featured on Duets is Somewhere Out There, which Ronstadt recorded with James Ingram in 1986 for the soundtrack to An American Tail. Duets also includes two of her most successful collaborations, both of which feature Aaron Neville. The Grammy-winning songs Don't Know Much and All My Life originally appeared on Ronstadt's triple-platinum album Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind (1989).
