Linda Ronstadt Simple Dreams Edition 180-gram LP Sourced from Original Master Tapes
1971 Breakthrough Spent Five Consecutive Weeks as the No. 1 record on the Billboard Album Chart
Linda Ronstadtâ€™s Simple Dreams continued a creative streak that found the singer turning out album after album of incredible material at an astonishing clip. Featuring an expanded palette of styles and cutting-edge narratives, the 1977 set may be Ronstadtâ€™s greatest work.
Paired with expert producer and arranger Peter Asher, Ronstadt delves into even deeper emotional waters to convey the feelings associated with loss, fantasy, risk, and romance. Her choice of materialâ€”ranging from covers of Roy Orbison to Warren Zevon materialâ€”is simultaneously appropriate and bold.
Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelityâ€™s numbered edition 180-gram LP marks the first time that this timeless classic has been remastered. Intimate, immediate, and detailed, the pressing brings Ronstadtâ€™s seven-octave range to the fore. These songs have never sounded so emotional, rich, pure, or, human.
