I love Linda's voice, I think I started a thread about it before.  Especially on "Long Haired Lady".  That song would not be the same without her raw vocals.  heart

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Yeah, I would've figured you liked that song! Sorry that I don't share your opinion, though – that's my least favourite Ram track precisely because of Linda's singing. She just sounds so…bratty. Really irritates me.

I like Linda best in small doses, like when she adds backing vocals on "Let it Be" or the "occasional oos" on the McCartney album.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

That's okay because that's why I like the vocals in that song.  It's that they are so "bratty".  I just think it suits the song well.   heart

I like Linda's bratty sound.  I think Paul detected that and used it to advantage.  The weakness of the song Long Haired Lady, in my opinion, is its rather plodding tempo and repetitive nature.  Linda's voice and Paul singing those two little refrains based on F major--Bb major--D7--G7 are what I like.

The ending "Love is looooong" is long, for sure.. but I love it.

I admit I like Linda's bratty sound too. It seemed to fit very well for that era for some reason.
