In the 1960s, Carole King (along with husband and collaborator Gerry Goffin) wrote more classic pop and rock songs than anybody this side of Lennon and McCartney. Working as part of the now-legendary Brill Building songwriters stable, she penned gems for the Monkees, the Byrds, Dusty Springfield, and scores of others. In the early '70s, she pioneered the confessional singer-songwriter genre with her landmark solo album TAPESTRY, in the process inspiring several generations of troubadours.

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.
