While some would contend that Carly Simon's wealthy background gave her a leg up, her talent and skill as a musician make it clear that she earned every bit of her current and future success on her own. Her first break came while she was on vacation. She and her sister Lucy took a trip to Cape Cod and tried to get a job performing in a summer resort. As luck would have it the previous performer had left, so they started singing there with a repertoire of three songs.
The duo continued to perform before eventually disbanding and Carly began performing as a solo artist. In June of 1971, she sat down with Wink Martindale for a detailed conversation about her life, career and passion for music.
