Anne Murray: Annie [Capitol, 1972]
Since her first hit Murray has personified pop at its most unaffected, nice in all the obvious ways--intelligent, cheerful, warm, even wholesome. The strongest of her five albums offers ten realistic, deeply felt songs, including "You Made My Life a Song," the most unpained come-back-if-you-break-up-with-your-new-love I've ever heard. I like every cut. Just wish I loved one.
