5.0 out of 5 stars The Queen of Popular songwriting, 23 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Natural Woman (Paperback)
Carole King, who often with Gerry Goffin (her husband for some time) and often without, wrote so many popular songs for other people to sing in the late Fifties, through the Sixties and into the Seventies, until eventually she was persuaded against her will to sing on stage and then record. Those of us who loved her recording of "It might as well rain until September", probably did not realise that she recorded that as a demo hoping Bobby Vee or some other star would record it to make it popular. She did it on her own. The song reached the Top Ten here. The book is her autobiography and is gripping as she details the way to the top. However for me, it tails off when she is eulogising so much on James Taylor. Also for me, there is a little bit too much detail about the creation of songs. But if like me, you have long admired this so talented lady, then it is all here for you to read. Highly recommended.

I cannot put this book down. Carole King's story is fascinating in all ways. To a music lover like myself, it offers a glimpse into the history, motivations and struggles of a master songwriter.

Bought this in hardback last autumn and enjoyed every page. Carole King and her music has always been an interest to me and would fully recommend this to anyone. Great read!!!
