Long before she ruled the airwaves as a pop diva introducing mainstream radio to Warren Zevon and Elvis Costello, Linda Ronstadt was part of the California folk-rock boom of the '60s. Though her trio, the Stone Poneys, was originally marketed as a hip version of Peter Paul & Mary, the Poneys transcended their packaging from the start. Their first album is an earthy, invigorating batch of songs along with a couple of well-chosen cover tunes. On the beautiful Fred Neil ballad "Just A Little Bit Of Rain," to choose just one highlight, Ronstadt demonstrates the strong vocal presence that eventually made her a household name.
