1976 Carly Simon – Another Passenger

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

For this album, Carly Simon enlisted a new producer, Ted Templeman, as well as his clients, The Doobie Brothers and Little Feat, to provide musical and vocal backing.
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.
