Today’s Forgotten 45 @ 45!

Happy 73rd birthday to the legendary Linda Ronstadt!

Linda Ronstadt – Oo Baby Baby

Of course, the original was recorded by The Miracles in 1965, but when Linda Ronstadt released her cover of it in 1978, she took it to new heights and it peaked at #7 on the Hot 100!

Remember her performance with Smokey Robinson in 1983 on the Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever special broadcast? The did “Tracks of My Tears” and this one, “Oo Baby Baby”!
