Carole King Tapestry 180g LP
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 36/500!
One of the key releases of the early 1970s and also one of the albums which
ushered in the era of mega-selling records must surely be Carole King's
magnificent "Tapestry" (No.1 US, No.4 UK '71). Not only was "Tapestry" the first
album by a female singer songwriter to sell in the millions but it was also the
Grammy award winning album of the year in 1971. Naturally the album is
jam-packed with fantastic songs like the impeccable huge hit "It's Too Late"
(No.1 US, No.6 UK '71) as well as such other classics like "I Feel The Earth
Move", her original version of James Taylor's smash "You've Got A Friend" and
her own version of the original Shirelles hit "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow"
(which she wrote anyway). When you add to these, the other brilliant songs she's
written which are on the album like "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman"
and "Beautiful" it makes you realize what a tremendous talent Carole King was in
the '60s and '70s. Quite simply "Tapestry" is a time defining album which
thoroughly deserves the classic status which it has. Serious vinyl devotees NEED
