On the Radio: Greatest Hits, Vols. 1-2 originally appeared as a double vinyl set in 1979 and was regarded well enough to make the transition to other formats.

During the ’70s alone, she topped the Billboard club chart 11 times with high-quality, often-high concept material that included the rapturous “Love to Love You Baby,” the…
