40 years ago, Linda Ronstadt released one of the most successful albums of her ground breaking career in 1977 with Simple Dreams. The new expanded version features remastered audio plus a trio of live songs taken from a 1980 concert performance. Simple Dreams: Expanded Edition will be released on September 15th.

Simple Dreams spawned two massive hits thanks to Ronstadt’s cover of Buddy Holly’s “It’s So Easy” and Roy Orbison’s “Blue Bayou” earning Ronstadt Grammy nominations for both Record of the Year and also Best Pop Vocal Performance Female. The album also won the Grammy for Best Recording Package.

Along with major hits, Simple Dreams also featured several tracks that would emerge as fan favorites, like the singer’s take on Warren Zevon’s “Poor Poor Pitiful Me” and the Rolling Stones’ “Tumbling Dice.” Country superstar Dolly Parton joined Ronstadt on the traditional ballad “I Never Will Marry”. Almost a decade later, Ronstadt, Parton, and Emmylou Harris would release their first Trio album.

In addition to newly remastered sound, the Expanded Edition of Simple Dreams also includes bonus live recordings of “It’s So Easy,” “Poor Poor Pitiful Me,” and “Blue Bayou.” All three are taken from a concert recording that originally aired on HBO in 1980 and are available here for the first time as standalone audio tracks.
