It's rare that I call a balearic record "the bomb," but this one really deserves it. Carly Simon's "Why" is one of those tracks that just works in every way. From the perfectly balanced backing beat (produced by Nile Rodgers/Chic!) with enough funk in the groove to keep it moving, while still maintaining that sentimental mood (thanks to the catchy as hell synth hook), to Carly's lovely longing vocals - this is pure balearic perfection. Original copies are rare and sought-after, so get this nice import repress while it lasts. Instrumental version by Chic on the flip. Recommended.
