Info for Spy (Remastered)

An underrated album, thanks to its lack of hit singles, 1979's „Spy“ is nonetheless one of the most intriguing items in Carly Simon's discography. Certainly it's her most rock & roll-oriented effort. Forgoing both the singer-songwriter folkiness of her earliest albums, and, to a lesser extent, the jazz-influenced melodic sophistication which first showed up in 1976's „Another Passenger“, „Spy“ is a tough 'n' tender pop-rock record, the missing link between the Carpenters and the Pretenders.

The swaggering 'Vengeance' is the highlight, a soulful rock song much more direct and believable than, say, Linda Ronstadt's 'You're No Good.' Elsewhere, the disco-tinged 'Pure Sin' foreshadows the rock-disco crossover of the MTV era, and the lengthy 'Memorial Day,' which closes the album with an extended drum solo, recalls the stylistic experiments of Joni Mitchell's jazz-based „Mingus“ album. This is perhaps not the place to start if you're looking for another 'Anticipation,' but „Spy“ is one of Carly Simon's best.
