          Hmm, never thought I would hear Kristin Chenoweth do an Eagles cover but she did a bang up job.

            Cool, because I tried to watch the audio video of this, but it wasn't available in the US. That is an outrage!...
            Great work.

                      Completely pure and authentic.
                      I’m a sucker for different renditions and Don Henley gave us a great gift of an American classic for the ages to be interpreted in Desperado. I’ve always treasured Linda Ronstadt’s version, however Ms Chenoweth and Mr Orland have found a different sensibility in the piece that speaks to the greatness of the vast American songbook. This version comes right out of the heartland and feels so real and from the heart. It’s the nutrition that we often don’t realize is our resource, our variances.
                      How beautiful

                            Glee should be identified with Kristin not the other way around.

                                  No the best choice for her voice. She flattened it out and made it boring.

                                              I would love to see her live in NY, but she's out of my price range unfortunately...

                                                I love Kristen. Love her broadway voice. Not too wild about some of the standards she sang. Not her style. She needs to stick to upbeat show tunes like the one with Ariana Grande.

Then again Linda Ronstadt - whose voice was powerful, tender and warm is - was on a vocal planet all her own. Four tunes on this album are from Ronstadt's repertoire. The producer, Steve Tyrell, a musical relation of Linda's. long as she loves Linda...

                                                                        • Harbor Heart
