Info for Boys In The Trees (Remastered)

Building on the strengths of its predecessor „Another Passenger“, „Boys In The Trees“ continues Carly Simon's artistic progress in the face of declining success on the pop singles charts. Unlike „Another Passenger“, Simon scored a hit off of „Boys In The Trees“ (the slinky 'You Belong To Me'), but the whole is constructed in such a way that even that song gains strength in the context of the rest of the album.

Arif Mardin's production gives the album a high gloss sheen without making it sound like a disco bandwagon-jumper, even on the dancefloor-ready 'Tranquillo (Melt My Heart).' The album is not without missteps--exhibit A is the bizarre fake-reggae 'De Bat (Fly in Me Face)'--but as a whole, this is one of Simon's finest albums, and those wanting to move beyond her greatest hits compilations could do worse than start right here.

„Her career revitalized by the success of 'Nobody Does It Better,' the theme from The Spy Who Loved Me, Carly Simon returned to record-making with this classy Arif Mardin-produced session, backed by New York's best studio players Steve Gadd, Eric Gale, Will Lee, Richard Tee, David Sanborn, the Brecker Brothers, etc.. Simon reached the Top Ten with 'You Belong to Me,' a collaboration with Michael McDonald that showed both off at their best, and the album's other Top 40 single was another duet with husband James Taylor on the old Everly Brothers hit 'Devoted to You.' Taylor also turned up writing and singing elsewhere to good effect. But what really made the album a winner was that Simon had had a couple of years to write some strong songs in her unflinching, reflective style, and she continued to explore the loves and mores of her age and class movingly.“ (William Ruhlmann, AMG)
