We’re revisiting Carly Simon’s third studio album No Secrets, which was at number one in America 50 years ago this month.
Veteran producer Richard Perry brought Carly Simon to London's Trident Studios to record her third studio LP, and the third time proved a charm for the performer – No Secrets was her commercial breakthrough. The Elektra release was the #1 album in America this week in 1973, going Gold (and later Platinum) largely on the strength of You're So Vain, which topped the singles chart (and later earned two Grammy nominations). But there are several other outstanding originals here, including The Right Thing To Do and We Have No Secrets, as well as some famous guests like Mick Jagger, Lowell George, Nicky Hopkins and James Taylor, who was proposing marriage to Simon right around this time. One of Carly's best albums, No Secrets is truly one of the gems of the singer-songwriter era.
