Carly simon half a chance


Another Passenger is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's seventh album, and sixth studio album, released in 1976.

Contents

For this album, Simon enlisted a new producer, Ted Templeman, as well as his clients, The Doobie Brothers, to provide backing vocals.

Reception

Another Passenger peaked at No. 29 on the Billboard Pop albums chart. The lead single "It Keeps You Runnin'" peaked at No. 46 on the Pop singles chart and No. 27 on the Adult Contemporary chart, while the second single "Half A Chance" appeared only on the Adult Contemporary chart, peaking at No. 39. Despite the lukewarm commercial reception, the album was, and remains, one of Simon's best reviewed works. Ken Tucker, writing in Rolling Stone, called it "Carly Simon's best record", and the album has also gone on to become a favorite among many of Simon's fans. Film director Terrence Malick appears on the back cover smoking at a bar.

On May 8, 1976, four weeks before the album was released, Simon made her first and (to date) only appearance on Saturday Night Live, performing "Half A Chance" and "You're So Vain".

"In Times When My Head" was included on Simon's 2002 career spanning collection Anthology, as well as her 2015 compilation Songs From The Trees (A Musical Memoir Collection).
