Carly Simon found a peaceful, happy place when she made 1974's platinum-selling Hotcakes. Aptly depicted on the cover smiling, radiant, and pregnant, the singer evolved from a jet-setting lifestyle into one marked by domestic bliss thanks to her recent marriage to James Taylor and decision to settle down.
The 1974 smash LP features several of her biggest hit singles like "Mockingbird," which features James Taylor, as well as one of the finest songs of that year "Haven't Got Time For The Pain." Masterworks such as "Misfit," "Forever My Love and "Just Not True" surely make Hotcakes one of the most revered albums in Carly Simon's stellar career.
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.
