Recorded in New York, New York.
In the tradition of Linda Ronstadt's MAD LOVE, Peter Frampton's THE ART OF CONTROL, and that Alice Cooper record where he looks just like David Byrne on the cover, 1980's COME UPSTAIRS is Carly Simon's new wave record. What makes COME UPSTAIRS work is the way the lyrics function as a loosely-connected song cycle about newfound feminine independence, which, in light of Simon's recent well-publicized divorce from James Taylor, could only be read as autobiographical.
The song "James" has to win some kind of "Last Time I Saw Richard" award for revelation. From the slinky come-on of the title track, to the seething "Them," to the coy "The Three of Us in the Dark," these songs are strong enough to forgive the dated arrangements.
