Record World Forum: Three Artists on the New Consciousness

Loraine Alterman, Record World, 19 May 1973

Carly Simon, Dory Previn and Mary Travers are three major artists whose work and lives exemplify the independent role women are assuming in society. As writers, Simon and Previn are providing a new point of view about the relationships between men and women, and as an interpreter, Travers is performing material indicative of the new consciousness. In the following discussion, each artist offers some provocative thoughts about the women's movement and its relation to their music and the record industry.
