It's no surprise that Suze DeMarchi from Aussie rock legends the Baby Animals is a big fan of Linda Ronstadt - what self-respecting woman in music isn't? Linda is a force, and so is Suze!
Baby Animals have recently released their Greatest Hits collection which of course contains the songs that ruled the charts in the early and mid-90s; "One Word", "Early Warning", "Painless" and "Rush You". The band are currently on the Red Hot Summer Tour with Suzie Quatro and The Angles - info here.
The album set includes a ferocious cover of "How Do I Make You" originally by Linda Ronstadt and it's a ripper version too. The BA's version delivers the same energy as the predecessor, take a listen...
On social media, Suze wrote about Linda... "Our new single "How Do I Make You" from our Greatest Hits album.. Originally recorded by the beautiful Linda Ronstadt one of my childhood inspirational women..."
We also love the live version of the song by Linda Ronstadt from her first ever live album, Live In Hollywood, released on February 1. You can read more about that release here, and take a look at the official music video of the studio version below.
In fact, we see a few similarities between Suze and Linda. Both incredibly talented songwriters with incredible stage presence. So commanding in their stature and poise, yet still warm and welcoming - must be the vocal delivery with its equal parts rasp and smoothness, raw power and eloquent control.
