Carly Simon - Voice Your Choice

Carly Simon was born June 25, 1945 in Manhattan, New York, of "blue blood" heritage. Her father is the co-founder of Simon & Schuster Publishing. She and her sister Lucy were in a folk duo, The Simon Sisters, and had a modest hit in 1964 with Winkin' Blinkin' And Nod. She was married to James Taylor from 1972 - 83.

After the first record with her sister, it wasn't until seven years later in 1971, that Carly returned to the charts, this time as a solo artist. Her very first solo hit was Top Ten. Overall, she appeared on the Billboard charts 25 times between 1964 and 2001.

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice spotlights Carly Simon and her first two consecutive solo hits.

Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice Page for either That's The Way I've Always Heard It Should Be or Anticipation. I'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
