The Bedroom Tapes is singer-songwriter Carly Simon’s 24th album, and 20th 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. 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. Review by MacKenzie Wilson: Accomplished singer/songwriter Carly Simon gets back to where it all started on her first brand new release of original material in six years, The Bedroom Tapes. She taps into the realm of traditional American music, continuing to draw inspiration from Broadway show tunes, jazz blues standards, folk-pop, and rock & roll. She is as a raw as she was on 1975’s Playing Possum and just as sweet as 1987’s Coming Around Again, but Simon is fresh. Although in her mid-fifties, she is still a charmer. Always frolicking with romance and the despair it sometimes brings, songs like “Our Affair” and “Cross the River” salt the wounds. She isn’t entirely melodramatic, she also makes room to poke a little fun. “I’m Really the Kind” sashes at her witty self, critical of her own desires. “We Your Dearest Friends” is a haunting look at how personal judgment comes full circle. The Bedroom Tapes is pure, and Carly Simon proves herself to be well grounded. Not that listeners didn’t already know that.
