I notice PBS is airing Carly Simon’s new A Moonlight Serenade On The Queen Mary 2. A truly magnificent vocalist, on a truly magnificent ship – it should be a great show. Unfortunately, it’s only a one hour show, so I’m pretty sure several of the numbers on the DVD will be missing.

Update: I was incorrect yesterday; it’s an hour and a half. There are three ten minute pledge breaks, which isn’t that bad. However, the selection of tracks is different from the commercial disk set – the latter being old standards. This has about half of those, mixed with Carly doing a few of her hits. The intimate “Chart Room” sequence, which features Carly singing with her daughter, Sally Taylor – an accomplished singer/songwriter in her own right, is not to be missed.
