Linda Ronstadt talking about Glenn Frey and Don Henley

In 1971, Don and Glenn and the rest of Linda’s backup band (Randy Meisner and Bernie Leadon) left to form the Eagles. They were together on six of the ten tracks on Linda’s third solo LP, Linda Ronstadt, released in January 1972, including three live tracks recorded at the Troubadour in March 1971.

Patti Smith and Sam Shepard in Sutter’s Bakery, New York City, 1971, by Judy Linn. 

So Sam just looks out on the river.
the badlands keep pulsing through his anatomy
the kind of bad that’s open and innocent:
the passion of a forest fire
the beauty of a poisonous flower, scorpion, snake.
Flames: the shot of silver:
James Dean’s death car…the silver Porsche
the stiletto…the pushbutton blade
the sliver of moon carved on his fist
mad dog dawn foaming at the mouth
heart like a garage
car…speeding like a demon

~Patti Smith, from “Sam Shepard: 9 Random Years (7+2)”, 1971, excerpted in this marvelous essay on her and Sam together that year, “Patti Smith: Star-Maker”, by John Blackburn
