Serve My Breakfast with "HOTCAKES" Any Day!
Reginald D. Garrard | Camilla, GA USA | 06/23/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Carly Simon has recorded some exceptional work since this one, but "Hotcakes" remains her best. In a time when most contemporary artists base album sales on the strength of one or two "hits," Simon crafted a flawless work with nothing but winners."Mockingbird," featuring then-husband James Taylor, is a rockingly good gem. "Man on My Mind" and "Forever My Love" are beautifully performed. "Safe and Sound" and "Misfit" are pop enigmas, blending superb vocals with enchanting orchestrations. "Older Sister" is a reflection for anyone who is or has that particular sibling."Haven't Got Time for the Pain" is sincerely delivered by the singer/songwriter and the band outro...WONDROUS!"
The Carly Simon album you can't get enough of

"I have always loved Carly Simon and this is one of my favorites.
She recorded this album after her marriage to James Taylor and
during her pregnancy with daughter Sara (Sally). This album is
all about making that decision of what do you do after the success of a hit album "No Secrets" which produced the hit
"You're so Vain" Well you go into the studio and record another
smash which will sell like hotcakes. this album has "Mockingbird" on it which she sings with James Taylor. This
song is one of the best remakes ever done and Carly and James
were at their happiest. Other standouts-"Older Sisrer","Think
I'm Gonna Have A Baby" the great opener "Safe and Sound" oh
all the songs are great. One of my favorites is "Haven't Got
Time for the Pain" one of Carly's greatest songs. I think Carly
Simon's greatest CD is Boys In the Trees" but "hotcakes" is
like a friend the songs are so personal."
In the eye of the beholder.....

"Probably half the overage guys in the country have had a vicarious crush on Carly at some point in the last 35 years. She has had a lot of great albums, and this is one of the best. [The recent "Moonlight Serenade" shows her voice to be as good as ever]. This recording is a joy-filled journey back to the 70's, and has a great singer in her absolute prime.

The two BIG HITS here are "Mockingbird" and "Haven't Got Time For The Pain". For those of us now in the grandkid years, "Think I'm Gonna Have a Baby" will sure bring back some memories, most of them wonderful. I kind of liked "Older Sister", and I suppose the title cut was meant as a joke.

Carly has also had some fabulous album covers, but I think that this tops them. WOW! Sexiest album jacket I ever saw. Anywhere. The girl absolutely glows. Proof that sexy isn't the same as provocative; she's completely covered except for hands and face, but, again, WOW. How James Taylor could be fool enough to let her get away is beyond me. Just one overage guy's opinion...."
