Product Description

Product Description

Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock 'n' roll. But it wasn't until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice. BEAUTIFUL tells the inspiring true story of King's remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than BEAUTIFUL music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation.

Review

JESSIE MUELLER IS PHENOMENAL! When she wraps her rich, burnished voice around all those hits, you feel the earth move. --Time Out new York

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! 12 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I saw this show on Broadway in December. I absolutely loved it and couldn't wait to get the soundtrack. All the usual songs you would expect to hear from a Carole King catalogue, but some great surprises as well. Jessie Mueller and the entire cast do such a wonderful job recreating all those hits from the early 60's. A really enjoyable soundtrack. The show was fabulous. See it if you can!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Night Meets the Morning Sun 24 May 2014
By Lee Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Without a doubt, Carole King has to rank among the top ten songwriters of the 20th century. While I haven't seen the musical, I approach the music looking for fresh interpretations of classic songs. Jessie Mueller's voice is a kissing cousin to Carole's and fits her classics like a glove. "Some Kind of Wonderful" glitters with glorious harmonies, "All you have to do is touch my hand to show me you understand & something happens to me." Jessie and Jake Epstein who plays Carole's first husband and songwriting partner Gerry Goffin do an amazing duet on "Take Good Care of My Baby" with a touch of Broadway schmaltz thrown in for good measure. Jessie's take on "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" does not over-reach and comes across as breathtakingly heartfelt, "Will my heart be broken when the night meets the morning sun?" The stage version of The Shirelles do a second version with strings and polish. Anika Larsen plays King contemporary Cynthia Weil and does a great version of Weil's "He's Sure the Boy I Love." Carole King the Musical again dips out of her catalogue for a strong version of "On Broadway" by the stage Drifters. Ashley Blanchet as Little Ava rips up "Locomotion." Act I closes with a blazing version of "One Fine Day" with Jessie Mueller, Rashidra Scott & the Three Girls ripping the song upbeat. Act II opens with our stage Carole and the backup singers rocking out on "Chains." Jarrod Spector as Barry Mann totally rips up "We Gotta Get Out of This Place," a hit for The Animals written by Mann and Cynthia Weil. The ensemble does a wonderful job on Weil/Mann hit "Uptown." Jessie Mueller does a great rendition of Carole's "Tapestry" classic "It's Too Late" and the lovely classic "You've Got A Friend." Mueller does a delicious job with King's classic "Beautiful," "I have often asked myself the reason for the sadness in a world where tears are just a lullaby." The musical concludes with Carole's thundering "I Feel the Earth Move." This is a dynamic cast album, charming because the music is familiar, ultimately successful because it is so well performed. Enjoy!

This is a fantastic recording. There are so many great Carole King songs, winnowing them down for the show
must have been the hardest part.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best jukebox musicals in a while 11 Jun 2014
By Jim Collinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of this show since I knew they were making it. Jessie Mueller is vocally stunning. She seems to somehow emulate Carole King by sounding like her, but putting her own flare into the songs. The highlights of the recording, besides every song being wonderful, is "So Far Away", "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?", "One Fine Day", "Walkin' in the Rain", "It's Too Late", "You've Got a Friend", "(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman" and "Beautiful". The other talents on this recording are Jake Eperstein, Anika Larson and Jarrod Spector (who slays a lot of his songs). It is literally one of the best jukebox musicals since Jersey Boys, and there have been a lot since then that have really done poorly. This one is up there with some great jukebox musicals.

It is amazing to hear how many songs that Carole King wrote. And not just wrote, but were hits. Just kept singing along to the CD :-)

Not just Carole King-written songs, but songs that were popular when she was growing up. A great collection and all well done!
