Rhino RecordsIt’s amazing what being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame can do for a performer’s back catalog.  Linda Ronstadt, who entered the Hall less than two weeks ago, has just scored her highest-charting album in more than two decades.

Billboard reports that Linda’s new compilation disc, Duets, has debuted at #32 on the album chart.  She hasn’t been that high since 1990, when her album with Aaron Neville, Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind, reached #7.  That album featured three hit singles, including “All My Life” and “Don’t Know Much.”

The new album, Duets, collects Linda’s duets not only with Neville, but with Don Henley, Bette Midler, Frank Sinatra, James Ingram, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and others.  There’s also one previously unreleased track, called “Pretty Bird.”

Ronstadt, who recently announced that she can no longer sing due to Parkinson’s disease, has scored 10 top 10 hits in her career, and 10 top 10 albums.  She couldn’t attend the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony on April 10, but was honored by performances from Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow, Emmylou Harris, Stevie Nicks and Carrie Underwood.
