Her Greatest Hits: Songs of Long Ago

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder

The selection of King's work is still only an inch deep, but it's a more rewarding inch.

    Carole King's Greatest Hits of Long Ago

    Carole King was a leader of mood music during the late 60's and early 70's. Her music made the top 10 list frequently, but not number one's. It was perfect for the times.
