Title: Ronee Blakley. Label: Man in the Moon. She was a singer-songwriter but with a decided folk-based style who found a measure of fame with this release, issued in 1972. The standard of the music on this album draws comparison with the material of these artists while the quality is right up there too. Blackley didn’t just sit and sing, though, she was the one with the arrangements and the piano noises too. There is real meat in this album. Social matters are addressed, for example on Fred Hampton, inspired by the deputy chairman of the Illinois Black Panther movement who was shot and killed by the police.

In 1972, the folk-rock album "Ronee Blakley" debuted on Elektra Records. The album featured Blakley’s original songs, accompanied by her talent on the piano. Blakley also made the musical arrangements. The song Bluebird featured a duet with Linda Rondstat. Ronee's songs were published by her own company, Sawtooth Music. Blakley’s second album, "Welcome" was released on Warner Bros. It was produced by Jerry Wexler and recorded at the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Alabama. The Los Angeles Herald Examiner wrote it was a "near perfect album.
Blakley just wrapped up her first studio album since the 2000s, which will include her own freshly minted remake of Hurricane, recorded with a band that includes Dave Alvin. Then Bobby Neuwirth said, Ronee, there’s somebody I want you to meet, and it was Bob Dylan. Eventually Bob got up on stage and started playing piano and singing, and I got up there and started playing and singing with him. We just immediately fit together as we were doing four-handed piano and singing harmony. Hurricane was the final song I recorded for my new album. I had sung it so many times with Bob, so I knew it was in me. And I knew the musicians I was working with.
