Carly Simon - Greatest Hits RIAA Gold Album Award Click here to see this CD at!

Almost any way you look at it, the Carly Simon of the '70s was pretty cool. Her acerbic wit and nasally expressive voice had people comparing her to Carole King, but she also had a weary androgyny that wouldn't be seen again until the arrival of Chrissy Hynde. Her songs rocked without quite being rock songs, and were folklike without falling into the singer/songwriter bins. She scored multiple hit singles yet could pull off an album with the best of her contemporaries. This is an early collection, so it doesn't include "Nobody Does It Better" or other later hits, but nearly all the songs here are worth having. Flavorful and nourishing--and a good package besides. --Gavin McNett
