Much more to Carole King than Tapestry. 16 Jan. 2010
By L. Power - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Looking beyond herTapestry album, which is included, the songs range from 1960s hit songs written with then husband Gerry Goffin, up to about 1981. I checked all the songs online, almost all of them have been, if not recorded by Carole King herself, then recorded and made into a hit by other recording artists.

For example Chains, Halfway to Paradise, Keep your hands off my baby were covered by The Beatles.

Locomotion was made a number one hit by her former babysitter Little Eva who she heard singing around the house, and was attempting to master this dance. Also, number one for Grand Funk Railroad in 1974.

Up on the Roof, covered by the Drifters and James Taylor.

Being at war with each other was covered by Barbra Streisand.

Some kind of wonderful covered by Rod Stewart and Michael Buble.

Crying in the rain, a huge hit for the Everly Brothers and Aha.

Take good care of my Baby, a number one for Bobby Vee.

One Fine Day, a hit for The Chiffons.

It boasts one of her greatest tracks Jazzman, and other well known songs such as Corazon, Hard Rock Cafe, Sweet Season, Believe in Humanity, Brother Brother.

Go away little girl, a number one hit for Donny Osmond, and for Steve Lawrence.

Oh no, not my baby Rod Stewart

Wasn't born to follow, covered by The Byrds in the movie Easy Rider.

Hey Girl, covered by Billy Joel.

If you're like me, I think you will really enjoy playing the songs in this book. The more you play the better you get. It's almost like hearing the actual record as you play along. Really, this is a great book.

If you want to get more of her music I recommend The Dimension Dolls, (as an mp3 download), and A Natural Woman: The Ode Collection 1968-1976, which has all her best songs from 1968-1976 including Tapestry in sequence. Most of those songs are in this book.

If you really want to pick up her unique piano voicing and styling, I recommend you consider The Carole King Keyboard Book: Note-for-Note Keyboard Transcriptions (Keyboard Recorded Versions), which includes the entire Tapestry album, Jazzman and several other solo hits.

If you are performing live, you definitely want to get her intros, turnarounds and fill ins, exactly as recorded, and it also has different vocal parts written in.

I wonder if this was helpful.

Music to take you back. 31 Aug. 2005
By Jo E. Logan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great anthology for those of us who grew up with Carole King or those just discovering her. It's really good for piano players who would like to sound a little rock and rolly. It not only has good piano arrangements but it also has the chords for those who can play by ear and improvize. The arrangements are advanced enough that they will be fun for experienced keyboardists, too.

You can sound like Carole... well, almost 18 Jan. 2013
By N. B. Kennedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My spouse is a beginning piano player who doesn't read music yet, so we look for books having chords for piano or guitar. The chords provided for these songs are rich, not just 1-3-5. You can play them and sound very evocative of the real thing, though it takes some practice, especially for a beginner just learning chord structure. The only downside is that the chord notation is tiny... not good for aging eyes! We have to rewrite the chords next to the original so we can read them.

Great purchase 19 Jan. 2015
By PianoGirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a great purchase. I am a classical pianist and studied on a college level for years. I find this book technically challenging and fun to play. The songs sound exactly like Carol King playing. The pieces are not written with the cheesy sound of a melody line like some other popular song books. If you like to play by chords, just be aware that the print for the chords above each bar is small. Overall, the book is easy to read and exactly what I've been looking for.

Suprised 26 Aug. 2013
By buddy james - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In all these years, I'd never seen this Carole King Deluxe Anthology (Piano/Vocal/Guitar Artist Songbook). It shows where she had written so many hits for so many other people. This book is a collectors item.
