Evergreen (Part One)

Greatly Appreciated


Everyone knows the 1967 hit song by the Stone Poneys, Different Drum” – written by Michael Nesmith of the Monkees – which appeared on their second album, Evergreen, Volume 2.  By then, Linda was singing virtually all of the vocals solo (except on the album’s surprising psychedelic-flavored title track, “Evergreen (Part One)” which was sung by Kenny Edwards), but it wasn’t always like that.  Many critics think that their first album, The Stone Poneys is even better; on that album, Linda Ronstadt sang solos on only three songs plus one verse of a fourth.
