"Dont Cry Now" was in there somewhere...and I think was on Asylum and the compliation CDs are Capitol...and if I recall correctly, some or all of the Eagles were on "Dont Cry Now" too...altho I dont thing they actually all played together on anything...various members turned up on various tracks with the regular cast of session players...

Don't Cry Now (Asylum SD 5064) which was released after Linda's self-titled album (Capitol SMAS 635) and before Heart Like a Wheel (Capitol ST 11358) didn't have much of an Eagles' connection. Henley and Frey wrote "Desperado" but neither of them sang or played on her version. In fact, the only Eagle to play on the album was Glenn Frey, playing electric guitars on JD's "The Fast One" according to the credits on the LP's inner sleeve.

It was during the recording of Linda's self-titled album (released in 1972) that the original four Eagles first played together. However, none of the songs that made it to the album credit all four of the future Eagles on any one song. All four of them were on the album, just not together on any of the songs. A couple of songs feature three of them. Also, there was only one known live performance with Linda and the four pre-Eagles...12 June 1971 at Disneyland.

But Linda and Bernie Leadon go way back. She sang on Hearts and Flowers' records, and Bernie played on all three of the Stone Poneys' albums with her. The recording sessions for the first one go back to 1966. He also appeared on her second solo release "Silk Purse" (Capitol ST 407). Bernie was also a regular member of her back-up band, the Corvettes, when he replaced Jeff Hanna, who returned to the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Below are some frame-grabs from Playboy After Dark showing Bernie (red shirt) standing next to John London. The second one shows Linda pointing to Chris Darrow, and the third is a close-up of drummer, John Ware. This episode was taped on 22 October 1969. By December Bernie was with The Flying Burrito Brothers, and John Ware and John London had begun recording with Mike Nesmith's First National Band the following Spring ...so this was close to the end of the Corvettes.





Here is a very short video snippet of "Lovesick Blues" from 1971. Linda's band includes Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Sneaky Pete and Vassar Clements:

The earliest released Glenn Frey contribution on any of Linda's records appears to be on the single "(She's a) Very Lovely Woman" (Capitol 3021), Linda's interpretation of the Emitt Rhodes' song. This 1971 single was released first as the b-side to a song from an older album, before the sides were flipped. Capitol needed a follow-up to the hit, "Long, Long Time" and the upcoming album was no where near ready. According to staff at Muscle Shoals, Glenn was with Linda when she recorded it there. It wasn't included when the album was released the following year.

Hope I haven't strayed too far off topic trying to establish a timeline.

Jackson Browne with David Lindley....

Linda Ronstadt with Andrew Gold, Bob Warford and Ed Black on steel.

It took me a year to find and set up the lefty lap steel, and 18 years to get the first lefty bender.
