The first disc retraces the groundbreaking singer’s rise to fame during the 1970s with songs like: Love Has No Pride from 1973’s Don’t Cry Now; You’re No Good from her Grammy-winning, multi-platinum 1974 breakthrough Heart Like A Wheel; Heat Wave from 1975’s platinum-seller Prisoner In Disguise; Crazy from her third-straight million seller, 1976’s Hasten Down The Wind; and Blue Bayou from the 1977 Grammy-winning, multi-platinum release Simple Dreams.
The hits continue on the second disc, which opens with the collection’s title track, Just One Look, from Ronstadt’s sixth consecutive platinum album, 1978’s Living In The USA. Selections from four more albums are also featured: Hurts So Bad from the 1980’s platinum-certified Mad Love; the title track from 1982’s Get Closer; her extraordinary duet with Aaron Neville on the #2 hit Don’t Know Much from 1989’s Cry Like A Rainstorm, Howl Like The Wind; and Heartbeats Accelerating from 1993’s acclaimed Winter Light.
