No Secrets 

Nothing you could ever do would turn me away from you
I love you now and I love you now
Even though you’re ten thousand miles away
I’ll love you tomorrow as I love you today

Carly Simon, “The Right Thing To Do”

Carly Simon releases her signature album on November 28, 1972.
“You’re So Vain” is #72 on Billboard’s Greatest Songs of All Time.

The line-up of artists who appeared on the album is amazing:

Billy Payne ~ Hammond organ
Nicky Hopkins ~ piano
Lowell George ~ slide guitar
Jim Gordon ~ drums
Bobby Keys ~ sax
Mick Jagger ~ vocals
James Taylor ~ vocals
Bonnie Bramlett ~ vocals
Linda McCartney ~ vocals
Paul McCartney ~ vocals

Oh, and speaking from the point of view of a 16 year old at the time, it’s also one of the seminal album covers in rock history.
