Linda Ronstadt, 'Heart Like a Wheel'

Capitol, 1974

A hippie country sweetie-pie becomes the star of the burgeoning LA. soft-rock scene, with gorgeous tributes to Buddy Holly, Hank Williams, the Everly Brothers and the McGarrigle sisters.

Essential moment: "You're No Good," revving up a great old Betty Everett song with dread and paranoia.
