Greatest Hits was Linda Ronstadt's first major compilation album, released at the end of 1976 for the holiday shopping season.

Linda Ronstadt's Greatest. has been added to your Cart. After watching the glowing tribute to Ms. Ronstadt on the 2014 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Concert, sung by 5 divas from pop, rock and country, I realized that my collection of her music was woefully inadequate. I had a copy of her Greatest Hits (Vol. 1), but no room for another CD in my jukebox. What's a person to do? This single disc, which combines both Vols. 1 & 2 of her greatest hits, was exactly what I needed. There may be more complete compilations of her vast body of work, but none of them fit on one disc

Linda Ronstadt's musical career spanned over 40 years and many genres, before her retirement in 2011. Her debut solo album, Hand Sown. Home Grown (1969) followed the disbandment of the The Stone Poneys. If you want to know the best Linda Ronstadt album of all time, this list will answer your question. Examples include Silk Purse (1970), Spanish album Canciones de Mi Padre (1987), and Feels Like Home (1995).
