Hello Big Man is a breezy mix of rock and reggae. The hit single You Know What To Do rose to # 83 on Billboard's Hot 100.
Features photos and film footage of Carly's parents: Richard L. Simon (co-founder of Simon & Schuster) and his wife Andrea Simon. The video also includes the actor Al Corley.
Relentless appreciation goes to the people who thrilled me with their support (and vice versa) throughout the making of this album: Al Corley, John Wright, Peter Wood, Peter Simon and Frank Filipetti. Aesthetic appreciation to Pierre La Roche.
