by Carly Simon
Released: Jan 2007
Listening to Carly Simon sing her ex-husband James Taylor's "You Can Close Your Eyes" here is eerie, especially when their son Ben Taylor comes in on the vocal harmonies. Ben inflects just like his father, and for a moment it almost sounds like Carly and James are back together - weird! The rest of these songs are mostly covers written by folks who influenced Simon. The Cat Steven-penned title track is easy on the ears, but her exquisite rendition of "Manha de Carnaval [Theme from Black Orpheus]" will float out of your speakers. Her own "Love of My Life" recalls Simon's '70s heyday.
