Poor, Poor Pitiful Me
Ronstadt was in the midst of really hitting her stride when Simple Dreams came out in 1977. Highlighted by country rocking interpretations of "It's So Easy," "Tumblin' Dice" and especially Warren Zevon's classic "Poor Poor Pitiful Me," the album is an excellent starting point for newcomers. Fans already know this one is essential. Don't miss "Carmelita."
