5.0 out of 5 stars TAPESTRY IS TIMELESS, 11 Sep 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Tapestry (Audio CD)
Unlike most people - I didn't pick up on Carole King until a couple of years ago when I bought this CD. What had I been missing for 30 asomething years? Quite a lot. Even though this recording comes from the early 70s, it sounds fresh and relevant today with its themes of loneliness, romance and inspiration. Almost every track is well known or has been covered, but few have bettered the original. In the UK, only the saga of her breaking up marriage to Gerry Goffin, IT'S TOO LATE made the singles chart, but YOU'VE GOT A FRIEND, a hit for James Taylor (who sings backup on this album) and IT'S GOING TO TAKE SOME TIME (Carpenters) demonstrate Carole King's ability to continually come up with haunting melodies. I FEEL THE EARTH MOVE is a toe tapper which opens the album effectively and SO FAR AWAY, TAPESTRY and BEAUTIFUL are standouts and what can you say about YOU MAKE ME FEEL LIKE A NATURAL WOMAN - a classic which can still make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. This CD has the added bonus of a live version of SMACKWATER JACK. So many albums of the 60s and 70s are over rated and don't hold up in this digital age - but this one does and deserves its 5 stars.
