After Spoiled Girl, Carly Simon moved to her fourth record label, Arista, and returned to soundtrack work. This time, she wrote "Coming Around Again" for Heartburn, and it hit number 18 in early 1987, her biggest hit in more than six years. That set up Simon's comeback with this album, which became her biggest hit in a decade, producing two more chart singles, "Give Me All Night" (number 61) and "All I Want Is You" (number 54), and going platinum. Along with "The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of," all made the Top Ten of the adult contemporary chart. Once again, a bevy of producers -- nine this time -- weighed in, in an attempt to vary Simon's appeal. This time, they included rocker Bryan Adams and lush popmeister Richard Perry. The big difference was that this time, Simon was willing to go to her strengths as a ballad singer rather than romping amid synthesized blips. Better to flirt with retro (there's a nice cover of "As Time Goes By" with a harmonica solo by Stevie Wonder) than disco, at least as far as Simon's audience is concerned. [A two-CD 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of Coming Around Again was released in 2017, featuring six bonus tracks on the first disc (including "Let the River Run," which appeared in the film Working Girl and won an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1989) as well as a bonus disc of 11 live tracks from Simon's HBO special Carly in Concert: Coming Around Again, recorded on Martha's Vineyard in June 1987.]
