Carly Simon: Reflections – Carly Simon's Greatest Hits

Terry Staunton, Record Collector, August 2004

THIS IS THE fifth Carly compilation in less than ten years (and, yes, one was imaginatively entitled Nobody Does It Better), during which time she has only managed a single album of original songs. But while Reflections holds little attraction for longtime fans who more than likely have the material several times over, it's the perfect starting point for anyone familiar only with Bond themes and Warren Beatty-baiting hit singles.
