Simon's children, Sally Taylor and Ben Taylor, appear on the album. The three perform a choral trio on the track "You Can Close Your Eyes".
After the success of Reflections and Moonlight Serenade, Into White continued Simon's recently rejuvenated high chart profile and became Billboard′s Hot Shot Debut, entering the chart at No. 15 and peaking at No. 13 in its second week, and staying on the charts for 10 weeks.

The Bedroom Tapes (Special Edition)
The Bedroom Tapes is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's twenty-fourth overall album, and twentieth studio album, released in 2000.
The album was critically acclaimed upon release and Simon promoted it through many television appearances, notably on Good Morning America when she gave a concert in Bryant Park, on May 19, 2000. Despite the warm reception, the album quickly went Out of print. "Our Affair" was remixed and featured on the soundtrack of the 2000 film Bounce.
In 2002, Simon released autographed limited editions of The Bedroom Tapes with two bonus tracks at the end of the album; "Grandmother's House" and "Sangre Dolce". The latter of which was included on her 2008 album This Kind of Love.
On April 6, 2015, Simon re-released the album as a special edition with two bonus tracks, the aforementioned "Grandmother's House" and "When Manhattan Was A Maiden". The release was through the Carly Simon Vintage Line, produced by C'est Music. The CD can be purchased exclusively through Simon's website.
Film Noir is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's twenty-second album, nineteenth studio album, and third album devoted to standards, released in 1997.
Jimmy Webb co-produced the album and contributed his vocals, orchestration and piano skills to the project which was filmed for an AMC documentary. He also co-wrote the title song "Film Noir" with Simon. John Travolta duets with Simon on the song "Two Sleepy People". Film director Martin Scorsese provided liner notes in the fold out booklet.
Letters Never Sent
Letters Never Sent is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's twentieth album, and eighteenth studio album, released in 1994.
Simon has stated the inspiration for the album came when she found an old box of letters that she'd written, but never mailed. She wrote "Like A River" in honor of her mother, Andrea Simon, and "Touched By The Sun" for her dear friend, Jackie Onassis, both of whom died from cancer in 1994.
The album features backing vocals by Marc Cohn and Simon's son Ben Taylor. Andreas Vollenweider plays the harp on the track "Davy".

Have You Seen Me Lately is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's seventeenth album, and fifteenth studio album, released in 1990.
The album spent 32 weeks on the Billboard 200, peaking at No. 60. The first single "Better Not Tell Her" was hugely successful on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, peaking at No. 4, and becoming Simon's biggest hit of the 1990s. The second single "Holding Me Tonight" was also successful on this chart, peaking at No. 36. Judy Collins contributed backing vocals on the track "Fisherman's Song".
My Romance is an album by the U.S. singer-songwriter Carly Simon, released in 1990. It is her fourteenth studio album, and her sixteenth album overall, as well as being her second album devoted to standards.
The album peaked at No. 46 on the Billboard 200, and remained on the chart for 17 weeks. Simon's version of In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning from this album was featured in the hit 1993 film Sleepless in Seattle, as well as being included on the film's soundtrack album.
Coming Around Again
Coming Around Again is American singer-songwriter Carly Simon's 14th album, and 13th studio album, released in 1987. It is the first of many albums Simon recorded for Arista Records. The title track, along with "Itsy Bitsy Spider", was written for and featured in the 1986 film Heartburn.
The title song peaked at #18 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Simon's twelfth Top 40 hit in the United States. Additionally, it was a top 10 hit in the UK. The album itself reached #25 in both the US and the UK. It was certified Silver by the BPI in September 1987, and Platinum by the RIAA in early 1988. It has since sold nearly two million copies in the US.
Shortly after the album's release, a live outdoor concert also entitled "Carly Simon – Coming Around Again" was recorded in June 1987 on Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts for HBO, and later released on video. On a pier in front of an invited audience, Simon and her band performed most of the songs from the album as well some of her older hits. The concert was also released as a live album in 1988 entitled Greatest Hits Live, and has also since been released on DVD as Live From Martha's Vineyard.
Spoiled Girl is the 12th studio album by the American singer-songwriter Carly Simon, released in 1985.
Recorded with a variety of producers in New York, this was Simon's only album for Epic Records. It was commercially unsuccessful when originally released, peaking at No. 88 on the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart, but has gone on to become a cult favorite within Simon's back catalogue. The album produced two singles, "Tired of Being Blonde" and "My New Boyfriend", with the former making the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
Hello Big Man
Hello Big Man is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's twelfth album, and eleventh studio album, released in 1983.
The album was Simon's last for Warner Bros. Records, as it was a commercial disappointment upon release, despite a positive reception from critics. The album featured Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare on a number of tracks, including one Bob Marley cover.
The title of the album is an allusion to the reply that Simon's mother, Andrea Simon, gave to her father, Richard Simon, when they first met. He said "hello little woman", and she replied "hello big man".
Torch is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's eleventh album, and tenth studio album, released in 1981.
It was Simon's first album devoted to standards, namely torch songs, relating unrequited love or rejection. The album also features one Simon original, "From the Heart". The album was recorded during her marriage break up to James Taylor, which was announced shortly after the release of the album.
Come Upstairs is the singer-songwriter Carly Simon's tenth album, and ninth studio album, released in 1980. It was the first of her three albums for Warner Bros. Records and it has a harder, more rock-oriented sound than her previous albums. Whereas those earlier records were prime examples of the singer-songwriter genre, with soft-rocking arrangements primarily built around piano and/or acoustic guitar accompaniment, Come Upstairs uses electric guitars and synthesizers prominently.
The first single released from the album was "Jesse", an acoustic ballad that was more in the style of Simon's earlier work rather than an example of her new sound. "Jesse" was a major hit: it remained on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for six months, peaking at #11, and was certified Gold by the RIAA for sales of more than 1,000,000 copies in the United States alone. "Jesse" also reached #12 in Canada, and #4 in Australia and became her biggest hit there since "You're So Vain".
Spy is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's ninth album, and eighth studio album, released in 1979. It is also her last album for Elektra Records. The title of the album is a tribute to Anaïs Nin, whose quote “I am an international spy in the house of love”, is written across the top on the inside jacket. Simon dedicated the album to producer Arif Mardin, in which she wrote in the liner notes, "Dedicated to Arif who is himself fantastic."
Although Spy did not yield any major hit singles, "Vengeance" earned Simon a Grammy Award nomination for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Female in early 1980, the first year to feature this new category. The song peaked at No. 48 on the Billboard Pop singles chart, and Simon later included it on her Anthology album in 2002. Simon made a music video for the song, and MTV later used a clip from it in a commercial that enticed viewers to get stereo sound on their TV sets. The promotional clip was also chosen by Pioneer Electronics to be part of their first demo disc for its then-new Laserdisc player.
Boys In The Trees
Boys in the Trees is the seventh studio album 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.
Another Passenger is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's seventh album, and sixth studio album, released in 1976.
For this album, Simon enlisted a new producer, Ted Templeman, as well as his clients, The Doobie Brothers and Little Feat, to provide musical and vocal backing.
Playing Possum is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's fifth studio album, released in April 1975.
It was Simon's third consecutive album to reach the Top 10 on the Billboard Pop albums chart, peaking at No. 10 in June 1975. The lead single from the album, "Attitude Dancing", which featured Carole King on backing vocals, was also a success, peaking at No. 21 on Billboard Pop singles chart, and No. 18 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. A second single, "Waterfall," which featured prominent backing vocals by Simon's then-husband James Taylor, didn't fare as well, reaching no higher than No. 78 on the Pop singles chart. It fared much better on the AC chart, entering the Top 40 and peaking at No. 21. The album's third and final single "More and More" was co-written by New Orleans pianist Dr. John, who also played piano on the track, along with Ringo Starr on drums, but it peaked no higher than No.94 on the Pop singles chart.
Hotcakes is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's fourth studio album. Released in 1974, it became one of her biggest selling albums. The album featured the major hits "Mockingbird", a duet with her then-husband James Taylor, and "Haven't Got Time for the Pain". Recorded during her pregnancy with her first child, many of the album's songs reflected Simon's upbeat mood during this period. The album's cover photo, taken by Ed Caraeff, shows the pregnant Simon sitting in a gleamingly white kitchen, smiling brightly and wearing a bohemian white linen dress.
The album went gold immediately and it stayed on the charts for eight months, yet it was initially overshadowed commercially by two other major albums released by Simon's own label, Elektra/Asylum, in the same month as Hotcakes, Joni Mitchell's Court and Spark and Bob Dylan's Planet Waves. These took the #2 and #1 spots, respectively, on the Billboard album chart while Hotcakes peaked at #3. Hotcakes went on to sell several hundred thousand more copies than Dylan's album and was listed in the Top 40 of Billboard's Year End Top albums for 1974, while Planet Waves did not make the Top 50.
No Secrets is the third studio album by American singer and songwriter Carly Simon, released on November 28, 1972 by Elektra Records.
The album was Simon's commercial breakthrough. It spent five weeks at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart and quickly went Gold, as did its lead single, "You're So Vain", which remained at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for three weeks, and topping on the Adult Contemporary chart for two weeks. 25 years after its initial release, the album was officially certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America on December 12, 1997.
The album is ranked number 997 in All-Time Top 1000 Albums.
Anticipation is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's second studio album, released in 1971.
It is best known for its title track, "Anticipation", which was a top-twenty chart hit in the U.S.; it was later used as the soundtrack for several television commercials for Heinz ketchup starting in 1973. The song relates Simon's state of mind as she waits to go on a date with Cat Stevens. The album cover artwork is a photo of Simon taken at the gates of Queen Mary's Garden in London's Regent's Park.
The closing song, her version of Kris Kristofferson's "I've Got to Have You", was released as a single in Australia and reached the top 10 of the Australian charts in 1972.
Carly Simon is the debut studio album by singer-songwriter Carly Simon, released in February 1971 by Elektra Records. The album was produced by Eddie Kramer, who had previously worked with Joe Cocker and Jimi Hendrix.
The album included her first Top 10 hit, "That's the Way I've Always Heard It Should Be", a somber ballad centered on a woman pondering marriage with a sense of both inevitability and entrapment; the song was written by Simon and collaborator Jacob Brackman. The album features material written by Simon, with additional writing by Brackman, Kramer, and Freddy Gardner. The album also features covers of songs by Mark Klingman and Buzzy Linhart.

The Studio Album Collection 1971-1983
Reflections Carly Simon's Greatest Hits
Reflections: Carly Simon's Greatest Hits is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's 28th album, and fourth greatest-hits album, released in 2004.
The album compiles 19 of Simon's top hits, ranging from her 1971 self-titled debut album Carly Simon, through 1994's Letters Never Sent, presented in chronological order. The compilation also includes a bonus track, "Amity", a duet with her daughter Sally Taylor, from the soundtrack to the 1999 film Anywhere but Here.
An International version of the album was released later that same year, mainly for the UK market. It consisted of a different mix of songs, and included the 1982 single, "Why" from the Soup For One soundtrack, a top 10 hit in the UK. Unlike the US release, the International version does not run in chronological order.
Clouds In My Coffee 1965-1995
Clouds In My Coffee is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's 21st album released in 1995. It is a three-disc, 58 song career retrospective box set that spans Simon's career from 1965 to 1995. Also included are nine previously unreleased or hard-to-find songs. The booklet includes numerous photographs and extensive liner notes by Simon.
The album's title is taken from a refrain in Simon's song "You're So Vain."
The Best Of Carly Simon
The Best of Carly Simon is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's sixth album, and her first greatest-hits compilation of previously released songs. Covering the first five years of her career, 1971 to 1975, the compilation includes six top ten hit singles, two minor hits and two album cuts that were never released as singles.
For many years, this was Simon's only greatest hits collection, and, as a result, it became her bestselling album. In the late 1990s, sales in the United States alone stood at over three million copies. However, in later years the collection could not be considered a complete or definitive representation of Simon's best or most popular work because it did not include her major hits from the mid-1970s onward, such as "Nobody Does It Better", "You Belong to Me", "Jesse", "Coming Around Again" and "Let the River Run". The fact that Simon had changed record labels several times made a more wide-ranging collection a difficult proposition.
