Carly Simon: Hotcakes
A glowing, pregnant Carly Simon smiles out from the cover of Hotcakes, one of her biggest selling albums, which featured the gold
single "Mockingbird," a duet with her husband James Taylor that effectively remade the old Inez and Charlie Foxx hit and bested it
on the charts. The album also included another hit, "Haven't Got Time For The Pain," as well as "Misfit," in which a wife implores
her carousing husband to come home, and "Think I'm Gonna Have A Baby," which celebrated the joys of same. With such tracks,
Hotcakes was an autobiographical concept album that defined domestic bliss at a time when Simon's listeners also were catching their
breath and turning inward.
Robbie Robertson was hired as a sessionman for the recording of the Carly Simon/James Taylor Top 10 hit "Mockingbird".
