Wendy Waldman S/D?

Ran across her original version of "Pirate Ships" after hearing The Cure's cover of it and was intrigued enough to start digging.

Worth the effort? Another Ronstadt knockoff?

I've got a soft spot for Wendy

I used to have Strange Company and played it lots back when it was new. Still have Letters Home, but it's a casette and I don't do much with those nowadays. She has a great voice.

Never really thought of her as Ronstadtian, though.

I was thinking more of the era... Mid-70s, post-Topanga, Asylum Records, etc. etc. Karla Bonoff is the other person to namecheck, but she's kinda obscure outside of songwriting credits.
