Ronstadt, a soprano, and Savoy, an alto, sing together as The Zozo Sisters on the album, which brings together a mixture of Louisiana Cajun sounds, popular music of the 20th century, and folk/rock classics. The album includes an interpretation of The Left Banke's 1966 hit "Walk Away Renée", Harry Belafonte's 1950s hit by John Jacob Niles "Go Away From My Window" and the French classic "Parlez-Moi D'Amour". Ronstadt takes lead on Julie Miller's "I Can't Get Over You," with Julie's husband Buddy Miller on guitar and Savoy takes lead on Richard Thompson's "Burns' Supper."

On her collaboration with Savoy, Ronstadt remarked: "We could have made a quilt, I guess, except we're musicians, so we're making a record together instead. She sings in French — I don't speak French — but there's traditional love in this bond."[4]

The album was recorded at Dirk Powell’s Cypress House Studio in Louisiana. It features local musicians, including Chas Justus, Eric Frey and Kevin Wimmer of the Red Stick Ramblers, Sam Broussard of The Mamou Playboys, Dirk Powell and Joel Savoy, as well as Nashville performers, like fiddler Stuart Duncan, mandolinist Sam Bush and guitarist Bryan Sutton.

Critical response and accolades

The Ronstadt/Savoy album received mixed reviews but landed on several year-end Top Ten lists. It peaked at #146 on the Billboard album chart. The recording earned two Grammy Award nominations, including Best Traditional Folk Album and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.

The discography of Linda Ronstadt, an American rock, pop and country artist, consists of 28 studio albums, 1 live album, numerous compilation albums, and 63 singles. After recording three albums with her folk rock band, The Stone Poneys, Ronstadt debuted on Capitol Records as a solo artist with 1969's Hand Sown ... Home Grown.Between 1970 and 1973, Ronstadt released three studio albums: two on the Capitol label, Silk Purse (1970) and Linda Ronstadt (1971); and one on the Asylum label, Don't Cry Now (1973). Developing a Country Rock sound similar to that of Eagles, Ronstadt recorded 1974's Grammy-winning Heart Like a Wheel, which sold over two million U. S. copies and spawned the #1 hits "When Will I Be Loved" and "You're No Good". Her next album was 1975's Prisoner in Disguise, which followed a similar musical format and contained a Top Five cover of "Heat Wave". Hasten Down the Wind in 1976 featured two Ronstadt-composed originals and established Ronstadt as the first ever female recording artist to score three million-selling albums. Its biggest hits were a remake of Buddy Holly's "That'll Be The Day" and a reworking of Willie Nelson's "Crazy". The album won Ronstadt her second Grammy Award.

Her 1977 release, Simple Dreams, followed a more Rock-oriented format. It went Triple platinum in America alone and produced two simultaneous Top Five hits: the Platinum-certified "Blue Bayou" and "It's So Easy". Additional hits from the album included "Poor Poor Pitiful Me", "Tumbling Dice", and the Top 10 Country hit "I Never Will Marry".

The following year, Living in the USA included a cover of Chuck Berry's "Back in the U.S.A.". It also contained a soulful Top 10 remake of the Motown classic "Ooh Baby Baby" which crossed over to R&B radio. In addition to the conventional Asylum release that is listed below, special limited-edition releases were also made of this album in red vinyl and picture disc. "Just One Look" was the album's third hit single.

Ronstadt's first disc of the 1980s was the New Wave-styled Mad Love. It debuted at #5 on the Billboard album chart and quickly became her seventh million-selling album in a row. It produced Top 10 singles with "How Do I Make You" and the scorching "Hurt So Bad".

On April 24th, 1980, Ronstadt recorded a concert at Hollywood’s Television Center Studios for HBO, to coincide with the release of Mad Love. 12 hand-picked performances by Ronstadt were later released in her only live album, Live in Hollywood on February 1, 2019.In 1983, Ronstadt changed musical directions towards big band jazz and traditional pop music, recording What's New, which was certified Triple Platinum in the United States.

To celebrate her Mexican American heritage, Ronstadt recorded the Spanish-language album Canciones de Mi Padre in 1987, selling more than two million copies in the U. S. and winning Ronstadt another Grammy Award. It stands as the biggest-selling non-English language record in history. The same year, she also teamed with Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton for the collaboration album Trio, which spawned four Top 10 Country music hits, including the #1 single, "To Know Him Is To Love Him". Her 1989 release, titled Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind, was Ronstadt's first pop music album in seven years. It produced two Grammy Award-winning duets with Aaron Neville on the Billboard Hot 100: the Gold-certified number 2 hit "Don't Know Much" and the number 11 hit "All My Life". Both songs were long-running #1 Adult Contemporary hits.

After releasing two less successful Spanish albums in the early 1990s, Ronstadt returned to something more contemporary with 1993's New Age-styled Winter Light. It was followed by her 1995 return to Country Rock: Feels Like Home. Her Grammy-winning album of children's lullabies was issued in 1996 and had strong sales. Her 1998 release, We Ran, featured more Rock-oriented album material. In 1999, Ronstadt reunited with Harris and Parton for Trio II, which won Ronstadt her eleventh competitive Grammy Award and nineteenth Gold album. That year she also recorded a Southwestern-inspired release with Harris, Western Wall: The Tucson Sessions.

Her 2004 release, Hummin' to Myself, was Ronstadt's fourth album of traditional jazz standards . In 2006, she made what turned out to be her final studio album – Adieu False Heart – mixing Cajun music with rock in a collaboration with Ann Savoy.

As a testament to enduring interest in the trio, the band's three albums: The Stone Poneys; Evergreen, Volume 2; and Linda Ronstadt, Stone Poneys and Friends, Vol. III, were released together as single CDs for the first time in the 1990s in the US (nearly 30 years after the music was recorded), with the first two albums reissued in Australia in 2008.

Their name comes from a translation of Baton Rouge, which means "red stick" in French. The most recent line-up consisted of Linzay Young (fiddle, lead vocals), Daniel Coolik (fiddle, mandolin, electric guitar), Chas Justus (guitar, vocals), Eric Frey (Upright Bass, Vocals), Blake Miller (accordion and acoustic guitar) and Glenn Fields (drums). Past members include Josh Caffery, Joel Savoy, Oliver Swain, Kevin Wimmer, Wilson Savoy and Ricky Rees.

The band played a combination of traditional Cajun songs (sung in Cajun French), as well as covers of Western Swing classics (particularly the songs of Bob Wills), early American jazz and blues covers (Stuff Smith, Count Basie, Fats Waller and more), and honky tonk and dance-hall music, as well as dozens of tradition-inspired original songs.

The Red Stick Ramblers have appeared in a season finale of the Travel Channel's "No Reservations", with chef Anthony Bourdain, entitled "Cajun Country".

Following this appearance the band scored a role in the third season of HBO's Treme, starring as Lucia Micarelli's character Annie's band the "Bayou St. John Playboys" and later "Annie T's Bayou Cadillac." Three Red Stick Rambler original songs, Made in the Shade, Katrina, and Morning Blues, are featured in season three of Treme. The band also returned to appear in the final abbreviated 4th season of Treme.

The rhythm section of the Ramblers performed as the backing band on several tracks of Linda Ronstadt and Ann Savoy's 2007 release Adieu False Heart.

On 26 October 2013 at the Black Pot Festival in Lafayette, LA, a festival started by the Red Stick Ramblers in 2006, the band announced that this would be their last show as The Red Stick Ramblers. 5/6th of the members of the most recent personnel of the band have gone on to form The Revelers, which is currently active.

Walk Away Renée

"Walk Away Renée" is a song written by Michael Brown, Bob Calilli, and Tony Sansone for the band the Left Banke, released as a single in July 1966. Steve Martin Caro is featured on lead vocals. It spent 13 weeks on the US charts, with a top spot of number 5.The song features a flute solo played during the instrumental bridge of the middle portion of the song. Brown got the idea for the flute solo from the Mamas & the Papas song "California Dreamin'" which had been recorded in November 1965 but wasn't a hit and in heavy rotation until early 1966. The arrangement also includes a lush string orchestration, a jangling harpsichord part, and a descending chromatic bass melody. Its production was credited to World United Productions, Inc., but the session was produced by Brown's father, jazz and classical violinist Harry Lookofsky, who also led the string players.Rolling Stone placed "Walk Away Renée" at number 220 in the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. The song returned to nationwide charts with cover versions by The Four Tops (1967) and Rick Price (1993).
