CARLY SIMON - THE VERY BEST OF, album released 1998.
Encoded 320Kbps mp3. Covers included.
Carly Simon was among the pop royalty of the singer-songwriter era of the early 1970s. This album collects her most popular songs of the first five years of her solo career. Including the powerful "That's the Way I've Always Heard It Should Be," and for which Simon received the 1971 Best New Artist Grammy Award, it includes three tunes from the classic No Secrets album, including the number one hit "You're So Vain." Simon's duet with then-husband James Taylor on "Mockingbird" was also a Top Ten hit. "Anticipation," with its classic "I rehearsed those words just late last night," and the repetitive coda "these are the good old days," though merely a ketchup commercial to a later generation, still retains its power here in the original version. Simon's insightful lyrics and evocative voice remain fresh years later. This album is a good starting point for those interested in discovering why.
