Don McLean recorded "Tapestry" in 1969. At this time, he was a relatively unknown folk singer and he applied to over 30 record companies before Mediarts agreed to release it. When the record company was taken over, he was signed by United Artists and went on to release American Pie in 1972. After this enormous success, Tapestry was re released and finally charted high on both sides of the Atlantic. It is one of his greatest albums and has been hugely underrated. It was produced by Jerry Corbitt of "The Youngbloods" and includes two of Don's most famous songs: "And I Love You So" and "Castles in the Air". Each song tells a powerful story - It is a must have for anyone who enjoyed "American Pie" a long, long time ago.
