The pirates of Penzance by W. S Gilbert( Visual )

47 editions published between 1980 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 2,151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gilbert and Sullivan's classic musical comedy of mistaken identity comes swashbuckling to the screen with all the laughs, songs, and stars that made it a long-running Broadway smash. This spectacular production adds some contemporary flash to the classic farce which follows the adventures of a roguish pirate leader and his young charge through numerous love affairs and sword battles
A merry little Christmas by Linda Ronstadt( Recording )

19 editions published in 2000 in 4 languages and held by 1,074 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the arrangements are a mix of old-school American pop orchestration and Ronstadt's occasional jazzy flourishes, the singer does mix it up a bit more than someone of a previous generation might. There's a unique rendering of Joni Mitchell's classic 'River, ' dotted with angular cello and staccato bursts of concert harp, which brings things into the present day. For the most part, though, the tradition-minded orchestral arrangements and heavenly choirs show that Ronstadt's rock & roll past hasn't prevented her from taking a reverent approach to these time-tested compositions

Canciones de mi padre by Linda Ronstadt( Recording )

50 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Canciones De Mi Padre (Spanish for "Songs Of My Father," or "My Father's Songs") was American singer/songwriter/producer Linda Ronstadt's first album of Mexican traditional Mariachi music. The album was released in late 1987 and quickly became a smash hit. It stands as the biggest selling non-English language album in American record history. The album has been RIAA certified Double-Platinum (for over 2 million US copies sold) and also won Ronstadt the Grammy Award for Best Mexican-American Performance. To date, it has sold nearly 10 million copies worldwide. These canciones were a big part of Ronstadt's family tradition and musical roots. The title Canciones De Mi Padre refers to a booklet that the University of Arizona published in 1946 by Ronstadt's aunt, Luisa Espinel who had been an international singer in the 1920s. The songs come from Sonora and Ronstadt included her favorites on the album. Also, Ronstadt has credited Mexican singer Lola Beltran as an influence in her own singing style, and she recalls how a frequent guest to the Ronstadt home, Eduardo "Lalo" Guerrero, father of Chicano music, would often serenade her as child with these songs. In the accompanying printed material, each song's Spanish lyrics were paired with an English translation and a discussion of the song's background or its significance for Ronstadt(omitted on the CD). Rubén Fuentes served as musical director/bandleader. Follow-up albums include Mas Canciones, Frenesi, and the RHINO Records compilation Mi Jardin Azul: Las Canciones Favoritas, which collects mainly songs from the previous three Spanish-language albums

Graceland by Paul Simon( )

13 editions published between 1986 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Graceland, Paul Simon hit on the idea of combining his always perceptive songwriting with the little-heard mbaqangamusic of South Africa, creating a fascinating hybrid that re-enchanted his old audience and earned him a new one. It is true that the South African angle (including its controversial aspect during the apartheid days) was a powerful marketing tool and that the catchy music succeeded in presenting listeners with that magical combination: something they'd never heard before that nevertheless sounded familiar
