    デビューの翌年ですでに3作目。27歳にしてこの落ち着き具合。素晴らしいです。アイドルかと思って、顔が嫌いと思って聴かなかったのを後悔。バックは前作同様The Dixie Flyersが中心のようですが、ほかBernie Leadon、Booker T. Jones、Al Kooper、John Sebastian、Carl Radle・・・ああもう、手放せません。

    リタ・クーリッジの6作目にして最大のヒット作。もちろんBooker T. Jonesも参加しています。もともと名曲ですが、アコースティック・ギターを中心に据えたオリジナルとはまた違った雰囲気の"We're All Alone"が感動的です。

    "We're All Alone"

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvNdPewuXAQ

    Outside the rain begins
    And it may never end
    So cry no more
    On the shore a dream
    Will take us out to sea
    For ever more
    For ever more

    Close your eyes ami
    And you can be with me
    'Neath the waves
    Through the caves of hours
    Long forgotten now
    We're all alone
    We're all alone

    Close the window
    Calm the light
    And it will be all right
    No need to bother now
    Let it out let it all begin
    Learn how to pretend

    Once a story's told
    It can't help but grow old
    Roses do lovers too so cast
    Your seasons to the wind
    And hold me dear
    Oh hold me dear

    Close the window
    Calm the light
    And it will be all right
    No need to bother now
    Let it out let it all begin
    Alls forgotten now
    We're all alone
    All alone

    Close the window
    Calm the light
    And it will be alright
    No need to bother now
    Let it out let it all begin
    Throw it to the wind my love
    Hold me dear

    All's forgotten now my love
    We're all alone....

    第15回グラミー賞(1973年)でBest Pop Vocal Performance, Femaleにノミネートされたセカンド・アルバム。最後の"I've Got To Have You"以外はオリジナルです。冒頭のタイトル曲はCat Stevensとデートの時、待っている心境の歌だそうです。

    "Anticipation"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTb5f0qOkHw

    We can never know about the days to come
    But we think about them anyway
    And I wonder if I'm really with you now
    Or just chasing after some finer day.

    Anticipation, Anticipation
    Is making me late
    Is keeping me waiting

    And I tell you how easy it is to be with you
    And how right your arms feel around me.
    Bit I rehearsed those words just late last night
    When I was thinking about how right tonight might be.

    Anticipation, Anticipation
    Is making me late
    Is keeping me waiting

    And tomorrow we might not be together
    I'm no prophet, I don't know natures way
    So I'll try to see into your eyes right now
    And stay right here, 'cause these are the good old days.

    (SIDE TWO) 7E-1002 B 0-1 sm1-1

    Billboard 200で1位を獲得した3作目の『ノー・シークレッツ』レコーディング終了後の1972年11月、カーリー・サイモンはジェームス・テイラーと結婚しました。続くこの4作目『ホットケーキ』は1973年10月 - 11月に録音、1974年1月11日に発売されBillboard 200では3位になりました。レコード・ジャケットの写真を撮影したときは長女サリー・テイラー妊娠中だったそうです。自伝的作品とされていますが、確かに幸せいっぱいという感じの内容で、微笑ましい作品です。

    なお、アコースティック・ギターや歌ではもちろんジェームス・テイラーが参加しています。ほかE.ギターではデヴィッド・スノピザやバッキー・ピザレリ、ベースはクラウス・ヴーアマン、ドラムはジム・ケルトナーなどが参加。カーリー・サイモンの作品で、音楽としても幸福度としても、1番良い作品のひとつです。

    Everybody have you heard
    He's gonna buy me a mockingbird
    And if that mockingbird don't sing
    He's gonna buy me a diamond ring
    And if that diamond ring won't shine
    He's gonna surely break this heart of mine
    And that's why I keep on tellin' everybody.....

    Hear me now and understand
    He's gonna find me some piece of mind
    And if that piece of mind won't stay
    I'm gonna find myself a better way
    And if that better way ain't so
    I'll ride with the tide and go with the flow
    And that's why I keep on shoutin' in your ear.....

    Everybody have you heard
    She's gonna buy me a mockingbird
    And if that mockingbird don't sing
    She's gonna buy me a diamond ring
    And if that diamond ring won't shine
    Gonna surely break this heart of mine
    And that's the reason why I keep on tellin' everybody...

    Listen now and understand
    She's gonna find me some piece of mind
    And if that piece of mind won't stay
    I'm gonna get myself a better way
    I might rise above, I might go below
    Ride with the tide and go with the flow
    And that's the reason why I keep on shouting in your ear...

    (SIDE ONE) 6E-128 A-1 PRCW-RE
    (SIDE TWO) 6E-128 B-1 PRCW-RE

    本作は1978年発表の7作目、邦題が『男の子のように』。Richard Tee, Tony Levin, Will Lee, Steve Gadd, Dave Sanborn, Randy / MichaelのBrecker兄弟などなど、フュージョン系のミュージシャンが大勢参加しています。もちろん1972-83年まで婚姻関係にあったJames Taylorがギターや歌などで多くの曲に参加しています。

    Boys in the Trees is the seventh studio album (eighth overall) by American singer-songwriter Carly Simon, released in 1978.

    The album included "You Belong to Me", which reached #6 on the Billboard Pop Singles chart and became Simon's fifth Top 10 pop hit. Another track, a remake of The Everly Brothers' 1958 hit "Devoted to You", sung as a duet with then-husband James Taylor, also made the Top 40 at #36.The singles also hit the Top 10 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, peaking at #4 and #2, respectively.

    The photo featured on the front cover of the album was expertly airbrushed to paint a Danskin top on what was a topless photo of Simon. The album won a Grammy for Best Album Package, the Grammy went to Johnny Lee and Tony Lane.

    ジャニス・イアンは、ご存じの通り1966年9月;14歳の時の"Society's Child (Baby I've Been Thinking)"で社会に衝撃を与え天才と言われた人ですが、一度は引退に近い状態になりました。1974年にアルバム"Stars(ジャニスの私小説)"で復帰し、この1975年3月に発表したアルバム"Between The Lines"とシングル・カットされた"At Seventeen"(17才の頃)"はいずれもNo.1ヒットになりました。シングルの方は第18回グラミー賞(1976年2月開催)で最優秀女性ポップ・ヴォーカル・パフォーマンス賞を受賞しました。「17才の頃」は、多分10代に聴くと響いただろうなと言うような内容の歌ですね。

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SuavKHes_Y

    I learned the truth at seventeen
    That love was meant for beauty queens
    And high school girls with clear skinned smiles
    Who married young and then retired
    The valentines I never knew
    The Friday night charades of youth
    Were spent on one more beautiful
    At seventeen I learned the truth

    And those of us with ravaged faces
    Lacking in the social graces
    Desperately remained at home
    Inventing lovers on the phone
    Who called to say - come dance with me
    And murmured vague obscenities
    It isn't all it seems at seventeen

    A brown eyed girl in hand me downs
    Whose name I never could pronounce
    Said - pity please the ones who serve
    They only get what they deserve
    The rich relationed hometown queen
    Marries into what she needs
    With a guarantee of company
    And haven for the elderly

    So remember those who win the game
    Lose the love they sought to gain
    In debentures of quality and dubious integrity
    Their small-town eyes will gape at you
    In dull surprise when payment due
    Exceeds accounts received at seventeen

    To those of us who knew the pain
    Of valentines that never came
    And those whose names were never called
    When choosing sides for basketball
    It was long ago and far away
    The world was younger than today
    When dreams were all they gave for free
    To ugly duckling girls like me

    We all play the game, and when we dare
    We cheat ourselves at solitaire
    Inventing lovers on the phone
    Repenting other lives unknown
    That call and say - come on, dance with me
    And murmur vague obscenities
    At ugly girls like me, at seventeen

    Wiki様によると”1976年のシングル「恋は盲目」がTBSドラマ『グッドバイ・ママ』に使われたこともあって、日本のオリコン洋楽シングルチャートで1976年9月13日付から8週連続1位を獲得、同曲の収録されたアルバム『愛の余韻』は日本の洋楽アルバムチャートで半年間に渡って首位を記録した。”・・・とのこと。

    「恋は盲目」って、日本の歌謡曲っぽいメロディですね。コード進行もオーソドックスで、歌詞も中学生レベルの平易さで。友人がものすごくこの曲が好きで教えてくれたのを覚えています。ちなみに、その場でケチョンケチョンに貶してしまいました。いまでは、ジャニス・イアンを嫌いじゃないけど、この曲だけは受け付けません。。。

    "Love Is Blind"

    Love is blind
    Love is only sorrow
    Love is no tomorrow
    Since you went away
    Love is blind
    How well I remember
    In the heat of summer pleasure
    Winter fades

    How long will it take
    Before I can't remember
    Memories I should forget
    I've been burning
    Since the day we met

    Love is blind
    Love is without a mercy
    Love is "now you've hurt me
    "Now you've gone away"
    Love is blind
    Love is no horizon
    And I'm slowly dying
    Here in yesterday

    In the morning
    Waking to the sound of weeping
    Someone else should weep for me
    Now it's over
    Lover, let me be

    Love is blind
    Love is your caress
    Love is tenderness
    And momentary pain
    Love is blind
    How well I remember
    In the heat of summer pleasure
    Winter fades

    TBSドラマ『グッドバイ・ママ』に使用された「恋は盲目」は日本のオリコン洋楽シングルチャートで1976年9月13日付から8週連続1位を獲得したそうです。この曲を収録したアルバム"Aftertones"『愛の余韻』も日本のアルバム・チャートで約半年間も1位だったと言いますから、ものすごい人気だったんですね。

    その作品に続くのが1977年のこの『奇跡の街』です。チャート・アクションを見れば『奇跡の街』はUSよりもはるかに日本で売れたようです(USでは45位、日本では26位)。シングル「Will You Dance?」は、またもTBSドラマ『岸辺のアルバム』の主題歌に使われ大ヒットしたそうです。

    ジャニスが人選まで行って録音した初めてのアルバムで、"Between The Lines"のアレンジで参加したRon Frangipaneを共同プロデュースに迎えて、また"Miracle Row"(邦題「奇跡の街」)のエンジニアLeanne Ungerを迎えています。ほか、大半のピアノはジャニス自身が弾いていますが、なんとChick Coreaも参加しています (tracks: B5)、Ron Carterも参加 (tracks: B4)。ジャニスは "I felt like for the first time, I was recording the music I heard in my head."と言ってます。

    ちなみにジョディ・フォスター主演の1980年の映画Foxes(邦題「フォクシー・レディ」)で使用された"Fly Too High"が大ヒットしました。

    Fly Too High (Written/recorded for the motion picture Foxes)
    Janis Ian/Giorgio Moroder

    Anonymous autonomous
    will likely get the best of us yet
    Before you disappear
    if you can lend me half an ear I'll regret
    If i treat you like a number
    it's because i can't remember your name
    so have another cigarette
    and help me to forget why I came

    Run too fast, fly too high
    Run too fast, fly too high

    On dark & lonely nights
    I'm only right
    when things are bright on the floor
    Dancing & romancing
    Gallivanting with a handsome I score
    If you don't believe me you should
    see me when I'm ready to score
    I'll lose my concentration
    on a new infatuation I'm sure

    Run too fast, fly too high
    Run too fast, fly too high
    Got no past, no goodbye
    Run too fast, fly too high

    Hanging around on the infield,
    what do you steal
    but another feel at the top
    Making believe in the long run
    when a shotgun
    is the way to get out of the shop
    Hang tail in a new jail
    Go bail, you can dance until you drop
    There's no fool like an old fool
    in a new school – you just can't stop

    Run too fast, fly too high
    Run too fast, fly too high
    Got no past, no goodbye
    Run too fast, fly too high

    時代の流れに沿った作りで、個人的にはどうも好きになれません。

    Crystal Gayle / True Love (US, Elektra, 60200) <November 1982>

    Crystal Gayle / True Love (US, Elektra, 60200) <1982>
    (SIDE ONE) + SLM △2829   B-17310-A1Re2 60200-A1-RE2-SH-AR
    (SIDE TWO) + SLM △2829-× B-17310-B1-RE2 60200-B1-RE2-SH-AR

    "True Love" is an album by American country music singer Crystal Gayle. Released in November 1982, it peaked at #14 on the Billboard Country Albums charts.

    Three of the album's tracks reached #1 on the Country Singles chart; "Til I Gain Control Again", "Our Love Is on the Faultline" and "Baby What About You".

    The oft-covered track "Everything I Own" was released as a single in the UK where it peaked at #93 on the UK Singles Chart in early 1983. The song was originally recorded by the band Bread in 1972, but was a UK #1 hit for Ken Boothe in 1974. In 1987, four years after Gayle's version, the song was recorded by Boy George (his first solo recording) who also had a UK #1 hit with it.

    どちらかいうと平凡な、少しカントリー色を帯びたポップスです。80年代に入っているにしては地味な作りという印象。レコードの番号にキリ番をもらってますから、当時は人気があったんでしょうね・・・。ちなみに本作品はAllmusicで★4つ、U.S. Billboard Top Country Albumsでチャート14位を記録しています。

    "Our Love Is On The Faultline"

    Well, I hear it comin'
    I can feel it in my bones
    And it's weighin' heavy on me
    Like a sack full of stones

    And I see it in your eyes, baby
    Each time we meet
    And I sense somethin' movin'
    Underneath our feet

    Baby, our love is on the fault line
    And you're sayin' that the fault's mine
    I can't believe that you're so blind
    Can't believe, can't believe

    You've been stirrin' up an earthquake
    You've been cookin' up a heartbreak
    And I hope it ain't too late
    For our love, for our love

    Now there's a chilly wind a blowin'
    And it's whippin' up a gale
    Storm clouds are brewin'
    And I know it's gonna hail

    And I see it in your eyes, baby
    Each time we meet
    And sense somethin' movin'
    Underneath our feet

    Baby, our love is on the fault line
    And you're sayin' that the fault's mine
    I can't believe that you're so blind
    Can't believe, can't believe

    You've been stirrin' up an earthquake
    You've been cookin' up a heartbreak
    And I hope it ain't too late
    For our love, for our love

    I feel it in my bones, I see it in your eyes
    Comin' up behind, here it comes
    Hold on tight

    You've been stirrin' up an earthquake
    You've been cookin' up a heartbreak
    And I hope it ain't too late
    For our love, for our love

    Our love is on the fault line
    And you're sayin' that the fault's mine
    I can't believe that you're so blind
    Can't believe, can't believe

    You've been stirrin' up an earthquake
    You've been cookin' up a heartbreak
    And I hope it ain't too late
    For our love, for our love

    Our love is on the fault line
    And you're sayin' that the fault's mine
    I can't believe that you're so blind
    Can't believe, can't believe

    Our love is on the fault line
    And you're sayin' that the fault's mine
    I can't believe that you're so blind
    Can't believe, can't believe

    (1) ST-1-2763-A-3
    (2) ST-2-2763-A-3

    Linda Ronstadtが在籍したことで知られるバンドThe Stone Poneysの3作のアルバムで、最も売れた2作目がコレ。ステレオとモノラルで発売されました。マトリクスは薄く読みづらく、写真に撮るのは難しいです(特にside 1)。

    December Dream

    I can see her slowly walking
    Through the empty streets of morning
    Who she's with I cannot tell
    His face fades with the others
    In the endless spell of dreams I know so well

    Though she walks with him no more with me
    And I know she's where she wants to be
    Her happiness is there for all to see
    But I find that I still wish it was for me

    I can hear her voice still ringing
    Through the empty songs I sing
    And it seems that all the words I find
    To say the things that crowd my mind
    Only bring me closer
    To the things I'd rather leave behind

    Though I know the game's been played
    And I know the mistakes I've made
    I know I shouldn't be afraid
    To love, for love for any time at all
    Is worth the price you pay to fall
