The discs will be issued as numbered, limited editions that will be retired after their initial runs have sold out, and will be available from both online and brick-and-mortar retail outlets.
First issued in November of 1972, NO SECRETS was Simon’s breakthrough LP and remains her best-selling recording to date, having held the No. 1 position on Billboard’s album chart for five weeks and ultimately gone Platinum five times over. Her third long-player, NO SECRETS contains Simon’s signature single, the chart-topping “You’re So Vain,” which features Mick Jagger on backing vocals, as well as its follow-up, “The Right Thing to Do.” The album introduced eight new Simon originals, as well as a cover of James Taylor’s “Night Owl,” and enlisted an all-star cast of support players. Taylor joins Simon on vocals for “Waited So Long,” which also boasts contributions from Little Feat’s Lowell George (slide guitar) and Bill Payne (organ), while Paul McCartney, Bonnie Bramlett and Doris Troy (of “Just One Look” fame) lend vocal assists on “Night Owl.” Richard Perry (Ray Charles, Rod Stewart, Ringo, Tiny Tim) produced NO SECRETS, and Paul Buckmaster, best known for his work with Elton John, provided string and woodwind arrangements on “When You Close Your Eyes” and the choral arrangement on “Embrace Me, You Child.”
