Focusing largely on her career including being the first bona fide female rock star, the life of Linda Ronstadt is presented. That path from her upbringing outside of Tucson, Arizona with European and Mexican heritage to that stardom having moved to Los Angeles to pursue that singing career is shown, with commentary not only from her own lips, but that of many of her contemporaries who were also emerging at the same time. Her own sensibilities as a woman in a profession dominated by men affected not only the way she acted within that environment, but also impacted the face of rock music especially as it related to women. Her move out of rock music to other genres in getting back to other types of music with which she grew up is also presented, she being told told time and time again that such moves would ruin her career, but the contrary eventually happening with she and the music with each move being met with critical acclaim and popular appeal. These genres included light operetta in the form of Gilbert and Sullivan (most specifically The Pirates of Penzanze), pop standards in collaboration with Nelson Riddle, a purely country collaboration with old friend Emmylou Harris and new friend Dolly Parton, a pop music collaboration with Aaron Neville, and a recording of traditional Spanish-language Mexican folk songs. Not being a songwriter but owning whatever song she decided to sing, and the reason for her retirement in 2009, when she gave her last concert, are also discussed. And two of her higher profile romantic relationships, to fellow musician JD Souther and then California Governor Jerry Brown, are also touched upon.

This is one of those documentaries that has a lot to say about life and what is important in life. It's also very entertaining. It's a documentary that is both moving and entertaining. The narrator is not a professional musician and has a lot of surprises. You won't see any famous artists but you will see many musicians and other artists in this documentary. The narration is very engaging and will make you feel what the subjects are feeling. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who loves music and life.

I've been going to the shows for almost 10 years now, and this film was a great way to start the year. The first hour of the film was quite emotional, especially when you get to see more about the family's experiences. I would recommend this film to anyone who loves music or just a really good story. This is a must see.

This is a terrific documentary about the life of Linda Ronstadt, a beautiful singer who had a great life, and died tragically at the age of 33. There's a lot of sadness and tragedy in this documentary, but also a lot of light-hearted humor, especially about her work with the band Steely Dan. It's great to see that she was able to make her music and show that she was able to connect with the audience. As I watched this documentary, I found myself wishing that she could have lived longer. She was a great singer, and her music is incredible. She was a woman of many talents, and her life was a beautiful story of many people who were influenced by her. This is a great documentary to see.

I saw this movie at a festival in Montreal. The movie is incredible. I found it very entertaining and thought it was very well done. The acting is superb. I liked the music. I think that the movie is not very factual but it is not a documentary. It is an honest look at what the Beatles were like and what happened when they went to England. If you haven't seen it, go see it. I highly recommend it.

The Sound of My Voice is a touching and insightful look at a man's love of music and the business of it. With interviews with more than fifty musicians and managers, the film moves you through the ups and downs of the man's life. The film focuses on the music business, showing the complicated relationship between music and money, as well as the personal lives of those involved. The film explores a variety of subjects, including the difficulties of recording the music, the struggles with the record company and record labels, the business of record sales and the commercial success of this music, the music industry in general, and the challenges facing the musicians themselves. The film shows us the human side of the business, as well as the business side of the music industry. It focuses on the man's music and his passion for it, his desire to make it, his struggles with the business of recording it, his personal life, his relationships, his emotions and the way that he deals with the business of music. The film is narrated by George Michael, who talks about his life before recording music. It is also narrated by Steve Tompkins, a recording artist who has worked with George Michael. Tompkins' character describes George Michael as a musician who had all the fun in the world. The film is insightful, entertaining and well worth seeing. It is also extremely moving and sad. The music that George Michael was recording at the time of his death was truly brilliant. It was more than just a great record, it was a musical masterpiece. You will be moved to tears by the music and it's beautiful music. This is a documentary that I recommend.

When I first heard about the movie, I was unsure whether to go see it or not. But I had a lot of respect for the Beatles and especially John Lennon, so I decided to go and see it. And I really liked it. The movie is very much like the real life of John Lennon, but it is a little different. The whole movie is filmed in a very intimate and raw way. The way that the Beatles were in the seventies is portrayed in a very subtle and poetic way, as if you are actually there. It is a really interesting documentary, which is really inspiring and shows how one of the most important people of the seventies, the most influential people, the most influential people, became a legend. It is very fascinating. It is a good documentary, but not a great one. It is worth a watch, but not a great one.

I have been a fan of Linda Ronstadt since I was a kid. I was introduced to her by the O'Jays, who did an album with her. I thought she was a great singer. I was thrilled when I learned that she was to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I was shocked when I learned that she was to be replaced. I had to ask myself, "How can she be replaced?" She was a true entertainer, and I loved her singing. I could not believe it when I learned that the Hall of Fame would honor her so very late in her career. I was beyond furious. It was a mistake to honor her so late in her career. I was so angry and hurt. It hurt me to see her go. I was so disappointed. Linda, you are still alive. I loved your music. I was thrilled when I learned you were inducted. I hope you are not disappointed with the Hall of Fame. I know you were a true artist and performer. You will be missed by so many people. Thank you for your contributions to music. I am so sorry to see you go.

I was shocked and disappointed to find out that Linda Ronstadt had died a week after this documentary was released. The film was very moving, and was very sad. I recommend this film to everyone who is or has been in a similar situation. Ronstadt was very frank about her depression, and it is evident in this film. The time is ripe for another Ronstadt documentary to come out, and hopefully it will be done on a larger scale. My favorite scenes were when she would say "it's OK to cry", and it was clear that she was very happy with what she was doing. The acting in this film was very good, especially from Ronnie and Linda. The script was great. I could not believe that Ronstadt was talking about a woman's breast size in a manner that was such a personal attack, yet she was a big star. I could not believe that her song "Do you want to build a bridge or tear one down?" was in the film. I believe that the movie was an honest portrayal of her life, and it was sad to hear her say that her career was in decline and that she felt she was no longer able to do what she loved. She said "I want to stop doing drugs and go back to a quiet life. I want to be able to talk about my life and not be told how I'm doing." I was also moved by the fact that she said "I don't have a problem with my breasts. I have a problem with how they are portrayed." I highly recommend this film to anyone who is or has been in a similar situation.

This is a wonderful documentary about the life of Linda Ronstadt. This movie is so good, I can't remember the last time I watched a movie this good. The first part of the movie was about her early days, and I really liked that. The second part of the movie was about the early days of her music. I liked the part where she talks about how her parents were always trying to make her a better person. I also liked the part where she talks about how she wants to be a role model for her daughter. The most amazing thing about this movie is that Linda Ronstadt is still here, she is doing good things in the world. I was very happy to see her doing good things. Her voice is still great. I wish we would have had more of her, but her voice was so wonderful.

If you're in the mood for a documentary that's a little bit more intimate, a little bit more poetic and a little bit more insightful than the typical Hollywood doc, you might want to check out this film. The idea of the film is to show the life of Linda Ronstadt from her birth in New York, to her later life in the 1960's and 1970's. The film is filled with great memories of the times, from the late 60's to the early 70's. The most notable aspect of the film is the archival footage of the legendary performer. I must admit that it is a bit too long, and I wish that the film would have been edited down to a much shorter length. However, this is a documentary that anyone can enjoy. It's not for those who are on a tight schedule, but those who are looking for something a little different from the typical Hollywood doc should enjoy this film.

I remember the very first time I heard Linda's music. I was in my early teens and was listening to the Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and heard "Don't Stop Loving You". I had a hunch that this was a Linda song. I knew it wasn't the same Linda I knew, but I didn't realize what a remarkable talent Linda had. I couldn't imagine a life without her music. She and I are not alone. I'm a lucky person to have her music in my life. She is my rock and roll idol. I have been working for years to get her music released and distributed. And now, she has released a CD that is the equal of any CD I have ever bought. She is not only an amazing singer and songwriter, but a wonderful artist who will be remembered forever. She is the greatest. Thank you, Linda!

I have been a Linda Ronstadt fan for years and a little bit of music is in my blood, so I was very excited to see this movie. I'm glad I watched it. I have to say, I was a bit disappointed in the end. I found the end to be rather strange. The movie was definitely well made and well directed. I was impressed with the musicians and their performances. However, I felt the director didn't really give the full story. He didn't really explain the meaning of the music, how it became the songs, how the music came to be, or the people who made the music. I would have liked to have seen more of the people who made the music and their lives. It would have been more interesting to see them as they were in their day to day lives. I found the movie a little long, and I would have preferred to see more of the music.

After reading some of the reviews, I was expecting a film that would be a bit more complex, but I was pleasantly surprised. A film that can give you a deeper insight into the struggles of being a solo artist, and a deeper insight into the music business. It is an extremely well put together film, with great performances, and beautiful music. There is a very strong message and message for everyone. I think that people should watch this film and try to get to the point they are trying to get at, and not just sit and wait for a scene to be shot. This film is for people who are interested in the music business and the struggle of solo artists. You will have a better understanding of what it is like to be a solo artist and how difficult it is to be a solo artist. I think that this film will appeal to all audiences, and is very well put together. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone.

This documentary is extremely important. It gives us the truth of the industry. It shows us the dirty and dirty dealings that go on behind closed doors. It shows us the how the drug companies influence the government and the media. It shows us how much is at stake for the people who are involved. I am a drug dealer myself. I am still affected by what I witnessed. I was even an undercover drug dealer for years. I watched this documentary with my brother and his girlfriend. They were shocked. They were so shocked that they wanted to see this film and share it with everyone they know. This is a documentary that needs to be seen by everyone. I am so glad that it was made and I hope that this film is viewed by everyone who is in need of help.

I just saw this film at a preview screening and I absolutely loved it. I love Linda Ronstadt and this film is a must-see. The story of her life and her music is very personal and powerful. The film really shows her passion for her music and her incredible talent. The acting is great. The documentary is a great companion piece to the film. It also shows her marriage, her children and her final years. This is definitely a must-see.

I loved the first part of this documentary, the story of Joan Baez. But, it seemed a little rushed at times. It felt like they had a lot of stuff to cover and they didn't have enough time to cover it all. The first half of the film is very good. It tells the story of how Baez got started and how she went from a country singer to an artist. But, it felt like they were going back and forth from one story to another. It's not a bad film. But, the second half of the film was very slow and I was starting to get bored. The music was nice. But, the second half of the film seemed like it was going to go from one story to another. I think the music should have been longer. The story about the movie was good. But, I think it could have been better if they had a lot more time to cover it all. I also think the documentary should have been longer. But, the music was nice. I recommend this movie to everyone.
