Biography

Prior to singing with the Simon Sisters, beginning at the beginning of my life, things were fairly quiet. Lucy, Joey and I sang throughout our childhood's, first in Greenwich Village (where I was kicked out of family choir for being obstreperous and willful), and then at our lovely homes in Riverdale, NY and Stamford, Connecticut. We sang as a trio, and then Lucy and I began singing in ... Read more in Amazon's Carly Simon Store

5.0 out of 5 stars A Remastered Masterpiece! 5 Oct 2005
By Martin A Hogan HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
For nearly four decades, Carly Simon has been producing top-notch high quality songs. This `remastered' collection contains all of her best and its hard to argue about which succeeds better than others. From the achingly lamentable, "That's The Way I've Always Heard It Should Be" to the emotional anthem, "Let The River Run", Carly pulls no punches with her strong voice or slick arrangements. Few female singers have such a strong band or percussion backing them, which has proven to be a Carly Simon trademark. You may have had an overdose of some songs, "You're So Vain" or "Nobody Does It Better", but they are intensely catchy at the very least. There are two distinctly different duets here. James Taylor playfully counters with a `call/response' technique on "Mockingbird, but the real surprise is the country flavored "Amity" with Sally Taylor. It's all in the family and it all sounds fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album for a Real Nostalgia Trip ! 9 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
I stumbled across this Carly Simon album on Amazon and snapped it up as soon as I saw it because it contained so many of my favourite childhood records (You're So Vain, Nobody Does it Better etc.). A brilliant album and worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction to Carly's music 26 Oct 2004
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Carly has had long and distinguished career but this collection manages to include most of the essentials although there is a double CD (Anthology) that covers her career more comprehensively.
From my perspective, there were two peaks in Carly's career - her seventies hits and her late eighties album, Coming around again. Between them, they dominate this collection, although there are other great tracks here.
Carly began her successful period in the seventies via the American hits That's the way I've always heard it should be and Anticipation. Britain then discovered her music and subsequent hits charted in both the UK and USA, though Carly remained more popular in America. Her international hits from the seventies include You're so vain, The right thing to do, Mockingbird (a duet with James Taylor) and Nobody does it better (a James Bond theme). Carly's only big hit of the early eighties was Why, although she released some interesting albums during that time. In the late eighties came the album Coming around again, possibly her best ever. It is represented by The stuff that dreams are made of, All I want is you, Give me all night and the title track. A few later tracks are also included, most notably the Oscar-winning Let the river run (from Working girl).
The track listing here is similar but not identical to the old UK compilation Nobody does it better, so anybody who has that does not need this. It is also worth noting that this compilation has slightly different track listings in the UK and the USA although if you really want the tracks on one but not the other, the best solution may be to buy Anthology.
As an introduction to Carly's music, this is brilliant.

I was not around at the height of Carly Simon's career. I am certainly old enough to have been around, but I lived outside the US for a long time, in an area where salsa and the cumbia were more popular than Ms. Simon. Now I get to listen to such fabulous artists as singers-songwriters Carly and Carol King retrospectively - and they sound even better now, than when I caught bits of their sound in the 1970s.
"Reflections" is a recording that includes 20 songs which span 30 years of the artist's career. She has a beautiful clear voice, and a natural style, which more than capably express a wide array of emotions. Her music, and much of it is her own, has been influenced by traditional American folk music, jazz, the blues and rock 'n roll. Carly Simon has been placed in the "confessional" genre of vocalists and songwriters. I don't pay attention to that kind of labeling. I feel like her songs are frank, honest and often very moving - from the heart. She is also quite sexy at times, and it is difficult not to move to her beat.
One of my favorite cuts, "Like A River" was written for her mother, Andrea Simon, right after her death. Carly once said in an interview, "My yearning to communicate with her was so strong, it seemed to me that she could really hear me." Ms. Simon's voice, her lyrics, and signature piano make an extremely moving elegy to her mom. "Amity" a duet with daughter Sally Taylor is another captivating and emotional piece. "Nobody Does It Better," sung for the 1977 James Bond hit "The Spy Who Loved Me" is a fabulous, upbeat love song, and a real ego booster for the man in one's life. It topped the AC charts for several weeks in 1977.

4.0 out of 5 stars I am new to Carly Simon but this is fabulous 16 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
The only songs I knew prior to buying this were "You're So Vain" and "Nobody Does It Better" so I didn't know quite what I was letting myself in for.
I've been playing it for over a month now and it still stands out. What surprises me is the consistency. Even the recent stuff stands a lot of listening, helped by lovely melodies and some brilliantly sharp lyrics. (Normally, ageing rock stars seem to fade in quality when they get older.)
I am not sure there are that many other classics on this - "Let the River Run", I suppose, "Jesse" and maybe "Coming Round Again" - but equally every song is enjoyable to listen to, and bears repetition.
Mostly, she writes about love and relationships, on which she's intriguingly ambiguous: the songs where she's swept up with sheer lust are balanced by the songs where she's wearied and angry about how things have happened. A lot of them really resonate.
The more I listen to it, the more I realise how untypical "Nobody Does It Better" is: it's the only track on the album not written by her. Much as I love it, its whole tone is more jokey than the other stuff, which is often quite raw.
The other reviews I read on this seem to point you away from this collection, but I wouldn't say so at all: I think it's brilliant. You won't regret buying it.
