Reviews:

''Adieu False Heart'' is a Grammy-nominated 2006 album by American singer/songwriter/producer Linda Ronstadt featuring Cajun music singer Ann Savoy. It is Linda's most current release as of 2010.

Ronstadt and Savoy sing together as The Zozo Sisters on the album, which brings together a mixture of Louisiana Cajun sounds, early 20th century gems, and folk/rock classics. It incorporates Ann Savoy's rich alto and the pure soprano of Ronstadt. The album includes an interpretation of The Left Banke's 1966 hit "Walk Away Renée", Harry Belafonte's 1950s hit by John Jacob Niles "Go Away From My Window" and the French classic "Parlez-Moi D'Amour". Likewise, Ronstadt takes lead on Julie Miller's "I Can't Get Over You," with husband Buddy Miller on guitar and Savoy takes lead on Richard Thompson's "Burns' Supper."

On her collaboration with Savoy for this disc, Ronstadt has remarked ""We could have made a quilt, I guess, except we're musicians, so we're making a record together instead. She sings in French — I don't speak French.. — but there's traditional love in this bond."

The Ronstadt/Savoy album received mixed critical reviews and even landed on several year-end Top Ten (favorite) lists. It peaked at a disappointing #146 on the ''Billboard'' album chart.

The album was recorded at Dirk Powell’s Cypress House Studio in Louisiana. ''Adieu False Heart'' features a strong cast of handpicked local musicians, including Chas Justus, Eric Frey and Kevin Wimmer of the Red Stick Ramblers, Sam Broussard of The Mamou Playboys, Dirk Powell and Joel Savoy, as well as an impressive array of Nashville aces: fiddler Stuart Duncan, mandolinist Sam Bush and guitarist Bryan Sutton. The recording earned two Grammy Award nominations, including Best Traditional Folk Album and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. - Wikipedia
