40 years ago today, Carlene's self-titled debut album was released on Warner Bros. Records (and tapes!)  Pictured here are the promotional poster sent to record stores, the album, 12 inch single, several 7 inch singles released in the US and Europe, press photo, and record company magazine declaring Carlene "The Face to Watch in '78."

The first time I saw you, was opening for Dwight Yoakum in San Antonion at Freeman Hall... Then with Mellencamp @ Winstar. Congratulations on the Anniversary! Thanks for being the Authentic You!

Carlene! I had your records from 1990 and 1993, and your Hindsight 20/20. Your music has become very important to me. So, congratulations on this anniversary. And thank you for your music and what it gives us!.

From the age of 15, I think every memory I have has a CC song playing in the background. Congratulations, Carlene! Thanks for sharing your art and your heart with all of us!
