Providence 1978 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Providence Civic Center, Providence, Rhode Island; August 8, 1978. Fairly to very good audience recording.

Legendary singer Linda Ronstadt, 67, told AARP ( August 23, 2013 that she “can’t sing a note” because she suffers from Parkinson’s disease. Diagnosed eight months ago, Ronstadt began to show symptoms as long as eight years ago.

Thanks to the taper; and to shopkin527 (Steve Hopkins) for the transfer, encoding and for sharing the tracks at Dime.

shopkin527 noted: “Note: somewhat distant, but otherwise clear, consistent and apparently complete.”
