The Bedroom Tapes is the 18th studio album by American singer-songwriter Carly Simon, released by Arista Records, on May 16, 2000.

The album received widespread critical acclaim upon release, and Simon promoted it through many television appearances, notably on Good Morning America, when she performed a concert in Bryant Park on May 19, 2000. Despite the warm reception, the album soon went out of print. In 2002, Simon released autographed limited editions of The Bedroom Tapes, with two bonus tracks; "Grandmother's House" and "Sangre Dolce". The release was limited to only 100 copies. Simon later included "Sangre Dolce" on her 2008 album This Kind of Love. The opening track, "Our Affair", was remixed by Richard Perry and featured on the soundtrack album of the 2000 film Bounce, starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Ben Affleck.

On April 6, 2015, Simon re-released the album as a special edition with two bonus tracks, the aforementioned "Grandmother's House", and "When Manhattan Was A Maiden". The release was through the Carly Simon Vintage Line, produced by C'est Music. The CD can be purchased exclusively through Simon's website.
