Wendy was part of the west coast sound that included the likes of Karla Bonoff, Linda Ronstadt and Maria Muldaur among others. She never really achieved the level of popular success that the others did, although her songs have been popularized by others. One of my favorites growing up. Another under-appreciated artist.
Recommended first album:
Love Is The Only Goal: The Best Of Wendy Waldman is the most readily available, and is probably a good starting place.

I had actually lost all hope that her music would ever be on CD, so it was a very pleasant surprise to stumble onto that CD one day. It's a really nice transfer, by the way, really clean, and clocks in at a generous 70:37! Finally, to be able to hear fine songs like "Western Lullaby," "Love Has Got Me," "Cold Back on Me," "Wild Bird," "Living is Good," without pops and clicks.
