Fabulous Friday: "Desperado"

I love The Eagles, but Linda Ronstadt's recording of "Desperado" is so much better than theirs. Here she is singing it in that 1977 concert from Hollywood, the one I saw on PBS a few weeks ago and inspired this tribute. Her performance is so lovely, and the video style is totally 70s, with the small image of Linda inset in the larger image of the pianist.
