Carole King – Tapestry

July 30, 2011 | 1971, Album Cuts, Carole King, Female

In early January of 1971 songwriter Carole King recorded her 2nd solo album as a singer.  When Tapestry was release a few months later, no one knew nor imagine how popular the album would become.

It was the biggest Album of 1971 remaining at the Number 1 spot for 15 weeks and on the Album Charts for over 6 years.

This is the Album’s title song.

All of the songs on the Album were written or co-written by King including a couple of songs that she had written with her ex-husband Gerry Goffin and  had been huge hits by others in the 1960s.

The Album would win the Grammy for Album of the Year.  It’s Too Late would win Record of the Year and the song You’ve Got a Friend a song on the album and also recorded by her friend James Taylor would be Song of the Year.  Taylor sang backup on her version.

Not sure when this version was recorded.
