Linda Ronstadt – Simple Dreams 200g 2LP 45RPM – QRP


Simple Dreams is the eighth studio album by the American rock singer-songwriter Linda Ronstadt, released in 1977 by Asylum Records. It includes several of her best-known songs, including her cover of the Rolling Stones song “Tumbling Dice” (featured in the film FM) and her version of the Roy Orbison song “Blue Bayou”, which earned her a Grammy nomination for Record of the Year.

The album also contains covers of the Buddy Holly song “It’s So Easy!” (a top-5 hit) and the Warren Zevon songs “Poor Poor Pitiful Me” (another top-40 hit) and “Carmelita”. The album was the best selling album of her career, and at the time was the second best-selling album by a female artist (behind only Carole King’s Tapestry).

    Ronstadt's fifth consecutive million-selling platinum album, selling more than 3½ million copies in less than a year in the United States — a record for a female artist!

    One of the most successful albums of Linda Ronstadt's career, Simple Dreams spent five successive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard album chart in late 1977, displacing Fleetwood Mac's Rumours at No. 1 after 29 record-breaking weeks in the pole position. It also knocked Elvis Presley out of No. 1 on Billboard's Country Albums chart after "The King" held the gridlock for 15 consecutive weeks after his death in August. It won the Grammy Award for Best Recording Package (in addition to several other high profile Grammy nominations).

    Simple Dreams was Ronstadt's fifth consecutive million-selling platinum album and sold more than 3½ million copies in less than a year in the United States alone — a record for a female artist. Simply put, Ronstadt just couldn't lose. Simple Dreams continued a creative streak that found the singer turning out album after album of incredible material at an astonishing one-per-year rate until she finally began to come back down to earth in the early 1980s.
