MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…

Carly Simon’s Never Been Gone …

1 Comment

… and Carly has a new CD, Never Been Gone, out to prove it.

Carly has re-recorded 10 of her hits and added 2 new ones.  The songs have been updated to accommodate the natural changes  in Carly’s beautiful voice.  As long time fan of Carly’s I wondered how I would like the different arrangements.  Not to worry, they’re spectacular and in my opinion will delight anyone listening to them.  You don’t have to even know the originals to enjoy these songs..just sit back, close your eyes and let Carly’s lush and beautiful voice wash over you.

I had the pleasure of hearing Carly’s new rendition of “You’re So Vain” a couple of years ago at Joe’s Pub in New York City at a small concert she was giving.  Carly brought the house down and everyone said she HAD to record it… and she has, and it’s pure genius as are the other songs on this CD.

I don’t mean for this post to be a review of “Never Been Gone”... I just want to share with readers of this blog that Carly is ‘comin around again’ although she’s ‘never been gone.’

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)

One thought on “Carly Simon’s Never Been Gone …

  1. Hi Joan,

    We were lucky enough to see Carly perform many of her songs from this wonderful new album in New York at Lincoln Center Tuesday night! What a fabulous show! Each song in its new rendition was wonderful and no one wanted the evening to end! Beginning with Let The River Run to which she had a standing ovation and ending with Coming Around Again which was soooo beautiful! There were many tears around the room when she sang Coming Around Again–an emotional and beautifully arranged song. Another highlight was Carly’s new version of “You Belong to Me” with John Forte joining in.
