She has lent her voice to over 120 albums and has sold more than 100 million records, making her one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time. Christopher Loudon of Jazz Times noted in 2004, Ronstadt is “Blessed with arguably the most sterling set of pipes of her generation … rarest of rarities‍—‌a chameleon who can blend into any background yet remain boldly distinctive … It’s an exceptional gift; one shared by few others.”

“When Will I Be Loved” is a classic popular song written by Phil Everly of the Everly Brothers, who had a hit with it in 1960. Linda Ronstadt covered the song in 1975 and her version was an even bigger hit. The song had its highest profile when Linda Ronstadt covered it on her album Heart Like A Wheel. This version rearranges the verses of the Everly Brothers original, transposing the first and third verses.
