The Best of Carly Simon CD

Featuring You're so Vain and Anticipation

< read all 2 reviews

My CD player got lonely when she went away that I had to put her back in.

  • Oct 3, 2009
A CD that made me a fan of Ms. Simon.  A CD that after I had gotten it I hated taking it out of the player after I had gotten some more CDs.  A CD that made me a fan of music in general.

I don't know what it was, the sweet lyrics, the nice arrangments, the familiarity I had with some of the tracks or the thing that tied everything together, which is Simon's melodious voice and beautiful voice.

Taking tracks from her first 5 albums, 1 from her first, 2 from Anticipation, 4 from the hit No Secrets album which includes Simons signature song, Your're So Vain, 2 from Hotcakes and even one from the infamous Playing Possum album, it's certainly a nice collection to give you a taste of what the albums have.  I would have liked it if some other tracks from other albums like Another Passenger's It Keeps You Runn'n, or even held off as long as the Spy album so that my favorite song of hers, We're So Close could be put on, but as it stands this 10 track disc is alright.  Theres a slight glitch in the transfer in teh Nightowl song  towards the begining but thats probably the only thing wrong, besdies the fact that after several other compilations, Night Owl still hasn't been remastered.

Sure it may be pop music but at least it's good pop music song by a great performer with an even greater voice.
