Originally released in 1981, Carole Bayer Sager’s Sometimes Late At Night is no ordinary record. A concept album with seamlessly flowing songs balancing lyrical intimacy and musical splendor, it chronicles the arc of a relationship and the many facets of love through a woman’s perspective.

Written by Carole Bayer Sager and Burt Bacharach in the early days of their romance, produced by Bacharach and Brooks Arthur, and featuring a “Who’s Who” of the era’s top musicians, Sometimes Late At Night has been described by AllMusic’s Joe Viglione as “the Sgt. Pepper of singer-songwriter recordings.”
