The Everly Brothers Version

The Everly Brothers scored a number 8 hit single with "When Will I Be Loved" in the summer of 1960 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The single was recorded in 1960 when both were contracted by Cadence Records.

In the same year, they moved to Warner Brothers and recorded it in a more general Pop / Rock style than before. The belated release by Cadence of "When Will I Be Loved" provided the Everly Brothers with a final rockabilly-style hit.

This single was produced by Archie Bleyer on February 18, 1960. The session took place at RCA Studio in Nashville, which was included in the session: Don Everly, Phil Everly, Chet Atkins, Hank Garland, Luther Brandon, Lightnin Chance, Buddy Harman and Floyd Cramer.


Linda Ronstadt Version

When Will I Be Loved became more popular when Linda Ronstadt covered it in 1975 on her album Heart Like A Wheel. This version rearranges the original verses of The Everly Brothers, transposing the first and fourth verses.

Initially, Capitol Records was reportedly unsure whether to release "You're No Good" or "When Will I Be Loved" as the lead 45 off of the album Heart of a Wheel, and in the end they decided to release "You're No Good" as their premier single. "When Will I Be Loved" was issued as the second single in March 1975.

Linda Ronstadt version hit number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in June of that year, as well as number 1 in Cash Box. Unfortunately, Ronstadt could not reach the number 1 hit singles on the Hot 100.

Instead, Billboard ranks number 1 for "When Will I Be Loved" on the C&W chart. This song has sold 268,000 copies in the United States since it was available for digital downloads as of January 2020.
