Released in 1971, Tapestry is a terrific album, a classic. While it's great to listen to any time of year, it seems like an especially good soundtrack for winter hibernation. Put on some slippers, Carole!
Tapestry is also available to download and keep at a rate of five songs per week through Hennepin County Library's Freegal subscription; find Freegal under Online Resources.
1971's "Tapestry" (by Carole King) is one of the absolute, best-selling albums of all time. To date, it has now sold over 25 million copies, worldwide.
"Tapestry" (whose songs were all co-written by King) was a 4-time Grammy Award winner, which included "Album of the Year".
Back in 1972, this phenomenally successful album remained at its #1 position on Billboard's top 200 chart for 15 consecutive weeks. It also held the record for most weeks at #1 by a female solo artist for 20 years (until it was surpassed by Whitney Houston's "The Bodyguard: Original Soundtrack Album" in 1993).
Out of "Tapestry's" 12 tracks, 3 of my favourites are - So Far Away, Beautiful and It's Too Late.
Born in NYC in 1942, Carole King was 29 at the time she recorded "Tapestry".
Such a timeless recording. She's raw, honest, and real. "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?" is heartbreaking in this version, and knowing more of her life story (thanks to the biopic Broadway musical), it's no wonder why. Beautiful.
