I have not heard this reissue as yet but i'm sure it sounds wonderful. However, any CD that omits "I've got to have you" cannot be considered definitive. When that track appears on a "greatest hits" reissue my wallet will open. Until then, this is another missed opportunity. It's about time that compilers asked for feedback/suggestions from music lovers before issuing compilations. After all, we are the customer & our views should count.

Easily the most comprehensive Carly Simon collection out there. It's in chronological order and leads off with the hits from a generation ago, including "That's The Way I've Always Heard It Should Be," "You're So Vain," "Anticipation" and the rest of the favorites. Although her pop hits dried up by the late 1980's, there are some very good songs on the second half of the disc, including "Let The River Run," "Coming Around Again," and "Better Not To Tell Her." The final track is a duet with Carly's daughter, and it's worth hearing. All in all, highly recommended, especially for casual fans of Carly Simon. The sound is great, and there's a nice booklet with great liner notes and photographs.

With an impressive career span going back toward the 70's Carly Simon has reached an impressive outpour of fans from around the world and still continues to be one of the most popular singers of the universe. This collection set titled Reflections is far more superb compared to the Best Of Carly Simon cd cause this covers nearly all of carly's most loved songs that made her a huge success in the 70'S. From touching ballads such as That's The way i always heard it should be to popular children's tunes such as Itsy Bitsy Spider from her Arista Debut Coming around again. The gospel sounding anthem Let the River Run is also included here from the Melanie Griffith film Working Girl as well as the James Bond hit Nobody Does It Better that was also used to hawk Safeway Supermarkets in the Late 90's. While this may be a fine sample of Simon's work it would have been nice to include Carly's version Of Winnie The Pooh from Disney's Piglet's Big Movie and Son Of a Gun with Janet Jackson and also from her Holiday album Pretty Paper with Willie Nelson. If you are a diehard Carly Simon Fan or just a starter like me this is a real true collection every fan must own. For more lite fare try these albums, Shirley Bassey- The Best Of Shirley Bassey, Carole King- Tapestry, Carole King- Throroughbred, Vikki Carr-It Must Be him/For Once In My life, Melissa Manchester-Melissa, Anne Murray- The Best So Far

This is your basic nuts & bolts overview of
Carly Simon's career, with all of the big
hits on 1 CD. Anyone who doesn't already own
a Carly collection would be well-advised to get
this. However, since she has already released
"The Best Of Carly Simon", "Greatest Hits Live",
the 3 CD set "Clouds In My Coffee", the 2-cd
"Anthology" and the easy-to-find import "Nobody
Does It Better" collection, most fans will prob-
ably have most of these songs. As a matter of fact
the 20 songs here are almost identical to the
"Hits" disc on the "Clouds In My Coffee" box
set with 1 or 2 exceptions. It's also a slight
disappointment that "Attitude Dancing", a top 25
hit, was not included. It would have been a better
collection with that song and "It Keeps You Running"
instead of so many of her lesser 80s and 90s cuts.
But like I said, for a casual fan, this will do
just fine. After all, it IS Carly, and she IS
great.

Several collections already existed that encompass Carly's solo career, including the three-disc box set CLOUDS IN MY COFFEE (1995), and the double-disc, forty-track ANTHOLOGY (2002). For the amount of space available on both of them, the track selections are flawed. REFLECTIONS, meanwhile, truly represents the cream of Carly's catalog and is an extremely enjoyable listening experience from start to finish.
The first nine tracks are comprised of Carly's '70s Elektra hits like "That's The Way I've Always Heard It Should Be, "Anticipation," "You're So Vain," and "You Belong To Me." I have my favorite album tracks from this period like "Tranquilo" and "We're So Close," but the recordings included here were the hits, so I can't find fault with the selection. Track 10, "Jesse," represents her early '80s tenure at Warner Brothers - a logical choice as it was her only top 20 hit there (I also liked her minor reggae-flavored hit "Why" from this period).
In 1987 - after an unsuccessful album SPOILED GIRL for Columbia - Carly moved to Arista and experienced a career resurgence, much like that experienced by other middle-aged Arista arrivals Dionne Warwick and Aretha Franklin. Her Arista highlights make up the final 10 tracks.
The first Arista album COMING AROUND AGAIN was one of Carly's strongest ever and it is well-represented here by its four singles, including the reflective title track and the enchanting "Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of." During her Arista years, Carly also got involved in film scoring - quite successfully - including her enclosed Oscar winner "Let The River Run" from WORKING GIRL and the theme for LOVE OF MY LIFE.
