Mad Love is a platinum-certified, Grammy-nominated 1980 rock album by singer/songwriter/producer Linda Ronstadt. It debuted at #5 on the Billboard album chart, a record at the time and a first for any female artist, and quickly became her seventh consecutive million-selling album.
The album contains versions of Elvis Costello's "Party Girl", "Girls Talk" and "Talking in the Dark" as well as Neil Young's "Look Out for My Love". Three songs from The Cretones' first album, Thin Red Line, were also featured.
In 2011, after 31 years, Mad Love was taken out of print. The album was put into reprint in 2012 as part of Warner/Rhino's "Original Album Series" a group of five classic albums packaged in a box with each individual CD in a mini-replica of the original vinyl packaging.
