Not the album, just the first single "I Fall to Pieces" (Capitol 3210) shipped in late September 1971. The album. Linda Ronstadt (SMAS 635) was shipped as a new release on January 19, 1972. We received our initial order from Capitol the following day, and had it in many of the local record shops by the 21st. Most of our out of town accounts got their shipments from us early the next week. I set up a bunch of radio spots and newspaper ads for record stores in several states for this title, along with Leo Kottke's new LP, Greenhouse (Capitol ST-11000), which was released on the same day.
