Album Review

In 1995, Arista released the first multi-label Carly Simon retrospective, the triple-disc box set Clouds in My Coffee, and seven years later, Rhino delivered the second, the double-disc Anthology. Two years after that, Arista finally delivered the first single-disc multi-label retrospective, Reflections: Carly Simon's Greatest Hits. Spanning nearly 30 years and featuring 20 songs, the collection has all of the big hits, from such '70s standards as "That's the Way I've Always Heard It Should Be," "Anticipation," "The Right Thing to Do," "You're So Vain," "Haven't Got Time for the Pain," and "Nobody Does it Better" to the late-'80s comeback hit "Let the River Run." Certainly, there are some listeners who are looking for a concise career-spanning disc, and for them, this suits the bill very well. The problem is, Simon's late-'80s and '90s work isn't as strong as her '70s recordings, and it accounts for half of this disc; Anthology had a similar situation, with the classic period ending at the conclusion of the first disc, but that division worked better, since it left the listener with one solid disc of '70s material. Here, the two eras are contained on one disc, so the dip in quality is more noticeable, which may make this of less interest to those who only want Simon's best work. Even so, Reflections does what it sets out to do quite well, providing a single-disc overview of Simon's entire career, both for better and worse.

Singles issue

Unfortunately, I can't get the song I want as a single. Let the River Run, as performed at the end of the movie Working Girl. Working Girl doesn't appear to have a soundtrack. And the only single available is the recently recorded one in a lower key without the energy of the original. I don't want to purchase this album just to get that song, but it isn't available any other way on any other album.

Why bother

I'd enjoy this album a lot more if it had more than three songs that you could purchase individually. Some of the songs on this album, in fact, used to be available for purchase on their own - at least until this album came out. Guess the record company just got greedier.

Let the Greed Run

Wanted to purchase the remastered version of Let the River Run, but as others have mentioned it's only available via album purchase. This "all or nothing" mentality of the record companies really has to stop. The days of buying vinyl records are long past, get over it people. You've lost a sale to this customer today because of your insistence to the old ways.

Carly Simon was one of the most popular of the confessional singer/songwriters who emerged in the early '70s. The youngest child in an upper-class New York family (her father, Richard Simon, co-founded the Simon & Schuster publishing company), Simon got her start in music as part of a duo with her sister Lucy (who later wrote the music for the Broadway show The Secret Garden). The Simon Sisters had a chart single with "Winkin' Blinkin' and Nod" in April 1964. But Simon's solo debut did not come until...
