On her second album of pop standards, Carly Simon
was a little less interested in the lovelorn songs that had filled 1981's Torch
, although she did soldier through "By Myself" and "When Your Lover Has Gone." For the most part, the theme was romantic, with classics like "My Funny Valentine" and "Bewitched" handled in Simon
's sexy, plaintive style. Okay, she was no Peggy Lee
, but she wasn't bad.
