Linda Ronstadt’s voice has never sounded better than it does on Get Closer. It’s an uneven album, to be sure, but its spirit is unassailable. Ronstadt’s ringing soprano vibrates with clarity and authority on the record’s best songs, and sometimes she uses her voice like a daring rock & roller: she yells until it hurts your ears

Get Closer found Ronstadt returning to the genres that had resulted in her commercial and critical success throughout the 1970s, and working again with British musician and producer Peter Asher. The album contained two tracks originally recorded for but never included on previous albums. The first, a re-make of Jones' "Sometimes You Just Can't Win," was recorded in June 1977 with J. D. Souther on harmony vocals and intended for the album Simple Dreams. Greatest Hits, Volume 2 is a hits compilation album from American oducer Linda Ronstadt. It was released in late 1980 on Asylum Records, the disc covers mostly Ronstadts hard rocking singles.
