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

Format: Audio CD
As you might have guessed from the title, Carly Simon's 1981 album "Torch" has her covering some pop standards from the past, such as "I Got It Bad (And That Ain't Good)," "I Get Along Without You Very Well," and, most impressively, "Body and Soul." There are also a few of her own compositions thrown into the mix and ends with a superb version of "Not a Day Goes By" from the Stephen Sondheim musical "Merrily We Roll Along." After having regained her songwriting touch with the 1978 album "Boys in the Trees," Simon had suffered an onstage collapse in 1980, which would see her confined largely to the studio for many years. During that time Simon would show that she could sing the songs of others as if she had written them herself. The songs of Ellington, Carmichael, Rodgers & Hart, and the others were well suited to Simon's singing at this point in her career, where her voice was starting to fully mature. Producer Mike Mainieri was also able to bring in some pretty good “sessions” players for “Torch,” such as David Sanborn playing alto saxophone on the opening track “Blue of Blues.” A lot of other contemporary pop singers would go into the studio to cover old standards, but Carly Simon is pretty much acknowledged to have been ahead of the curve on this one.

I Have Been A Big Carly Simon Fan For Around 35 Years ( Actually Round About The Time This Album Was Released) Although My First Treasured Carly Album That I Purchased Was Of Course NO SECRETS ...No Other Album Can Beat It In My Opinion,
And Now I Have Most Of Carly"s Albums, I Had This Album On Vinyl Quite A Few Years Ago And I Was Pleasantly Overjoyed With It Back Then
BUT NOW ..I Have It On C.D. As My Vinyl Copy Got Played Constantly And What A Fantastic Album It Is To Listen To Again After All Those Years, CARLY SIMON Needs No Great Build Up Or Introduction To How Talented A Vocalist Or Songwriter That She Is From Anyone ,
She Had Proved That Way Back In 1971 With Her Debut Album.
This Album Is A Fantastic Way For Carly To Bring Her Fans Something A Little Different And Some Songs That She Loves Privately And Once Again She Does Not Disappoint ....Carly"s Voice Is So Strong And Confident With Her Vocals That The Listener Can"t Help Being Captivated And The Emotion The She Feels Is So Powerful That We Are Able To Hear Her Songs With A Slight Tear In Our Eyes...Just Listen To FROM THE HEART, HURT, And WHAT SHALL WE DO WITH THE CHILD ...Pure Excellence , Some Say That Some Of The Tracks Carly Should Not Have Sung Songs Such As ... I GOT IT BAD AND THAT AINT GOOD, Or I GET ALONG WITHOUT YOU VERY WELL,
Which Is Totally Nonsense And Wrong Because Carly Sings These Songs With Conviction And Solid Vocals.... Which Goes To Prove How Much Carly Simon Is Very Much A Professional And Can Sing Anything.....Buy This Terrific Album Folks And Listen To The Sophisticated Sound Of CARLY SIMON.

Carly Simon has never really been given the credit she deserves for interpreting these amazing songs. I still love it 29 years later. The production of the album showcases a clarity and cohesion ahead of it's time. What a voice, what a gift to share. Other artists have followed, but this is the blueprint. It is documented somewhere, that Mo Ostin regrets that he didn't recognise the potential in the album....hope he reads this sometime. Torch is sophistication supreme.

This album is 5 stars all the way. I taped this many years ago, found the tape, listened and decided to buy the album. The ballads, jazzy stuff and old favourites are put together in an outstanding way. Carly Simon fans, buy this, you will not be disappointed.
