Simple Dreams is the most successful of Linda Ronstadt's studio albums to date. Spending five weeks at No.1 on the Billboard 200 album chart in 1977, it replaced Fleetwood Mac's long-running Rumours from the top spot. The album was such a success that Ronstadt became the first artist since The Beatles to have two singles in the top five at the same time, "Blue Bayou" and "It's So Easy".
