Simon's insightful lyrics and evocative voice remain fresh years later. This album is a good starting point for those interested in discovering why.

    Carly Simon Exposes Her Being and Retains Soul.

    Listened to Carly Simon for what seems since beginning of career,Solo. Tho' she sang with her sister earlier. Yes, All the First Known songs are here and none of the back~ground 'Why' she sang.That will be left for a person that would hurt her deeply. Respect her vocals and such individuality of Music/Vocals.These will Be the Standards from Our Generation of Ones born in late 1940's~1950's.We "get it".A New Chorus for those Now Listening to Parent's Music, Aunts, Uncles,et cetera.I am thrilled her daughter Sally and son Ben are singing w/her now quite often. She Is Her Own Legend in Our Time.
