I forgot about Linda after my first date with Chrissie. This song is timeless.

Linda Ronstadt's voice reminds me of Joan Baez. They're not the same, especially in style, but that's what came to mind after all these years.

Her and Freddy Fender were my dads favs. My uncle played for Freddie Fender for a while. Have them on a playlist and still bring a tear to me eye when listening to certain songs. Brings back childhood memories and my dad.

I'd like to know the venue: what bicycle shop interior appears in this photograph?

This does not remind me of any of the 1970s era Tucson, Arizona shops.

The "deep rim aero wheels" on the wall-hanging bicycle are more likely wheel covers...

I remember seeing Linda sing at Summerfest in Milwaukee, back in the 80's. Seeing her perform live, I felt like a lovestruck teen again like back in highschool...... Couldn't concentrate at all tor a whole week in my college classes!

I hated former California Governor Jerry Moonbeam Brown because, for a while, he dated her.

They used to hangout at Lucy’s El Adobe restaurant in Los Angeles. I saw then there and I definitely hated Moonbeam.

By the 70s she had already moved to LaLa Land.

Yep, strange bedfellows to be sure. I think she was so disillusioned with the music lifestyle as it was that she willing to embrace the dark side, anything for a big change.

I agree, not local, I hit every shop before buying my UO-8 in '72. I think in the '70s she was only coming to town to do concerts and charity events, Heart Like a Wheel was out in '74 so she was a rock star in the late 70's and if she was hanging out in town it would have been big news.

There is a name on the bottom of the bike shop photos. Photos by Lynn something or other. See if that person is still alive and contact them for the info.

The clue could be in the signage on the walls and counter. Is it English or Japanese?

Signs appear to be in English and the person behind the counter looks to be Caucasian. Not a Japanese shop IMO.

Not sure I would ditch LR but agree about Pretenders. Check out the acoustic version of Creep, also on YouTube, if you haven’t seen it. Terrible video but a great cover.

London Calling is pretty much my go-to Clash anymore, although the albums have all aged well and most are in at least semi-regular rotation. If you haven't spent any time with Joe Strummer's solo stuff it's well worth a listen, especiallyStreetcore.

Someone around here has the London Calling album cover as their avatar, but I forget who it is.

That's Lynn Goldsmith, famous rock photog. I went down that rabbithole yesterday, gave up before reaching out.

I've been a big fan of the Pretenders since the early 80's Their music is absolutely timeless.
Chrissie Hind's ultra clear, pure tone voice really sets her apart from all other singers of her time and even today.
Totally different personality projected though when compared to LR. Kinda tough, with a definite edge and sometimes visually edging towards "Goth"" (way before it was popular).....
Frankly, I can't see Chrissie riding a bike..... maybe a tandem?, with her on the stoker saddle and her booted feet on the Captain's back, while he does all the pedaling......

If this is morphing into a thread about other female vocalists that are up there, I would include Johnette Napolitano. People might not have heard of her or not like Concrete Blonde's music, but she has an impressive set of pipes. Kind of scary like Joan Jett.

Here are some covers of songs people will have heard before. The Leonard Cohen cover was an impromptu change to acoustic because of gear problems. They winged it with just a guitar. They do a nice job with the Hendrix cover. She really gets theatrical on stage.
