A must-have album for your collection.
Tapestry came at a time when Rock 'n' Roll was in doldrums. Three tragic events happened in 1970. The Beatles broke up; and Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin died! A generation of music fans (the baby boomers), who had grown up with the artists, were approaching the age of thirty, and needed something to chill them out. "Love Story" was a big hit in 1970 and Tapestry was THE 'Love Story' of Rock 'n' Roll. The songs touched areas never touched by a female singer/composer before.
Tapestry is a classic album. It's characterised by smooth flowing lyrics and superb musical composition. The beauty of the artist lies in their ability to express our emotions for us in a way we may not have been able to do so in a few life times, And what better area to touch? The songs touch the most universal emotion of all-- love and melancholy. Although the lyrics may be based on urban New York blues-- as suggested in "Where You Lead"-- the message is universal, it touches us all.
The album is like a tapestry itself from the first song "I Feel the Earth" to "You Make Me Feel". Each song is set in a perfect order (with the notable exception of "Smackwater Jack"). The songs weave the Tapestry of love and melancholy.Read more ›
