Background: Issued in 1973, the “2 Originals” series was issued in Germany and paired two early albums by then-famous artists.  Artists in the series included the Doors, Led Zeppelin, the Grateful Dead, the Mothers of Invention and some 50 others.

Released in 1971, Carly Simon was the first solo album by Carly Simon, who had previously released three albums with her sister, Lucy as the Simon Sisters.

The album reached #30 on the U.S. album chart. gave Carly Simon a 3 1/2 star review:

“That’s the Way I’ve Always Heard It Should Be,” the leadoff track of Carly Simon’s first album and a Top Ten hit, in which the singer expresses reservations about getting married, benefited from a sense of role reversal — it’s such a guy sentiment, but sung by a woman in 1971, it came across as a feminist statement, consistent with the overall disillusionment so prevalent then. Nothing on the rest of the album was quite as pointed, though the other songs maintained the same ambivalence toward romance.

Released in 1971, Anticipation was the second solo album by Carly Simon.

The album reached #30 on the U.S. album chart. gave Anticipation a 3 1/2 star review:

Carly Simon’s second album found her extending the gutsy persona she had established on her debut album, notably on the title track and “Legend in Your Own Time” (both of them hit singles), and “I’ve Got to Have You.” The latter especially suggested a frankly passionate person whose vulnerability was a source of strength, not weakness, a valuable feminist trait and one Simon would pursue in her later work.
