A disappointment and a missed opportunity
on 4 October 2012
Carole King was one of the so-called Brill Building songwriters responsible for much of the sound of early pop and rock'n'roll, and in tandem with her husband Gerry Goffin created some of the genre's enduring classics, songs such as "Will you Love me Tomorrow" and "Up on the Roof". Yet this period is barely touched upon - fellow songwriting teams like Barry & Greenwich, Mann & Weil, Lieber & Stoller, and writers like Doc Pomus, Phil Spector and so on, and contemporary local artists like the Drifters, Dion, the Four Seasons, and others barely get a mention, if at all. Instead she goes on endlessly about irrelevant matters such as an on-going right-of-away dispute with her Idaho neighbours (as if we really cared about that!) A missed opportunity.
