Linda Ronstadt Chart Profile

This page lists the album chart runs of Linda Ronstadt. A list of songs by Linda Ronstadt can be found here. The albums are listed with the most widely successful first.

The group "The Stone Poneys" only had one Billboard hit "Different Drum" which was also credited to the lead singer (Linda Ronstadt outside the USA). So we've used her name for their songs. The backing band from her 1971 tour went on to great success as Eagles. The album "Cry Like A Rainstorm, Howl Like The Wind" featured Aaron Neville on many of the tracks.

#4 & #4 (under Duets w/Aaron Neville - Cry Like A Rainstorm...) are the same, Also #7 & #23 (Greatest Hits). Also #15 & #30 (Greatest Hits, Volume Two). Also #8 & #19 (What's New?). Also #21 & #38 (Round Midnight). And finally based on time frame of 1978, #2 & #37 are the same (Living In the USA).

Looks reasonable, data fixed, thanks
