This beautiful song by Carly from 1973 really stands out for me along with Perry Como's And I Love You So, simply two outstanding ballads from that great musical year. Carly wrote the music and lyrics accompanied by a terrific choir and musical arrangement.
I was listening to 'The Right Thing To Do' a few nights ago in glorious 'quadraphonic' on a refurbished Technics 8-track player (as well as refurbished 8-track tape). It sounds AMAZING. Such a great song and great album. And the lead vocal is different in places (just like it is on some Carpenters quad tracks).
Carly Simon's voice is very interesting and unique I first heard her when "Anticipation" was getting heavy airplay on the radio and eventually made its way into of all things a a ketchup commercial (at least where I lived at the time as a kid) I didn't know her name until her 1978 hit "You Belong to me" hit the airwaves and the charts I still enjoy her music my favorite album by her is "Coming around again" from 1986 it's one of what I call "comfort albums"
