Her now-legendary album Tapestry is a must-have component for any '70s rock era collector.
Carole King was famous as a writer of girl-group hits in the '60s. In 1971, she became more famous. That's the year Tapestry became one of the biggest-selling LPs of all time. It's easy to hear why--the music is loose, earthy, L.A. session-pop. King is casual, intimate, and tough; she covers all the emotional ground of the post-liberated woman with ease. She brings adult nuance to "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?" and comes up with hits ("It's Too Late," "I Feel the Earth Move") whose white-soul realism and maturity put pop hits to shame. --Steve Tignor --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This album is truly a Must Have for anyone who cherishes the kind of great music and lyrics that just sweep you away almost a half-century later. Trust me, if you didn't know it was released in 1971 you would surely believe it came out this year. Throughout time, the great majority of albums had a significant number of tracks that were good and some were bad and you to judge pruchasing the album by the few cuts you heard on the radio. But, in my opinion, there was never a risk in buying this album since each and every song was worth of a Top Ten sport, at the very least, and some on this album, soared easily to the Number One spot which they truly deserved.
If you truly Love great Timeless Heartfelt music, you can't do any better than this album!
I'll never in my life have the experience of sitting in a recording studio while a masterpiece is being recorded, nor will you. Here is the good news though, you wont need to. Not if you have this disc. Yes, that is the experience of listening to this. I kid you not! I want to emphasize this again, as a music lover- if you love this album, if you appreciate the few in a lifetime experiences of joy when you listen to a real talent performing in front of you, get this disc for yourself. I know you will come back here with a comment to thank me. Be aware though, the first track is a little rough around the edges. The use of surround is excellent and Carol's voice coming at you from center channel will give you goosebumps. I know this sounds like a bunch of hype, but trust me, I have trashed some awful sounding albums with brutally honest one star reviews.

replace it. I still have the LP as well. People have been trying to buy that from me
for many years. I bought one of these for my sister when hers got fried in her car a
number of years ago. She was very upset this was the cd she lost in that fiasco. I
gave it to her in her Christmas stocking and she cried. (Only a Carole King fan would
***Update: looking at the Amazon listing, now there are many versions of this CD to choose from, including versions that have been remastered in the last few years. It looks like my concerns have been addressed, look at each CD option carefully to assure you get one with the version and clarity of the songs you prefer. There are also versions with multiple discs and extra songs now. Look for the remastered version when you make your purchase.
4 stars, great songs, but the digital versions aren't as crisp as I would like.
