Carly Simon Clouds in My Coffee 1965-1995 (Arista) This three-CD compilation includes Simon’s first demo (”Play With Me”), previously unreleased goodies (a funky version of John Prine’s ”Angel From Montgomery”), and hits (”You’re So Vain,” ”Jesse”). As she’s aged, Simon has grown more ponderous and middle-of-the-road; as a result, too many stately reflections and curiosities (”Take Me Out to the Ballgame,” for Ken Burns’ PBS series) are included.
