Info for Playing Possum (Remastered)

From the see-through skirt on the cover photo of 1971's „Anticipation“ onwards, Carly Simon has never minded showing off her body. However, the cover shot for 1975's „Playing Possum“—a photo to which the only possible response is 'yowza'--is so provocative that in many folks' minds, it's eclipsed the album itself. This seems to have happened even to Simon--her three-disc career compilation „Clouds in My Coffee“ includes nothing from this hit album.

Simon's last album to be produced by mid-'70s hitmaker Richard Perry, „Playing Possum“ does show why she chose to go into a new, more sonically adventurous direction with her next album, „Another Passenger“. It's not that „Playing Possum“ is dull--the single 'Attitude Dancing' is a minor gem, slight but awfully fun, as is 'Are You Ticklish?'--just that Simon occasionally sounds as if she feels somewhat hemmed-in by Perry's arrangements. Regardless, this is terrific, underrated '70s pop.
