Overview

On her second follow-up to Tapestry and third new album in less than two years, Carole King turned entirely to new compositions, most of them co-written with Toni Stern, rather than relying partly on songs from her back catalog. The result was a thinner collection than Tapestry or Music, although the album still went to number two and featured the Top 25 hit "Been to Canaan," as well as the warm love song "The First Day in August."

This is my favorite album ever, and certainly of Carole King's. It sets a mellow mood, it speaks to the soul and it is certainly not thin, even when compared to Tapestry and Music. Her voice is full of feeling, the passion of youth, and the knowledge of heartache, but still maintains the upbeat charisma that will get you singin' at the top of your lungs. A must have for anyone who like rainy afternoons, cups of tea with your best friend, curling up with a cat, and singing sweet songs from a long ago time. You'll love it.

This is the last of a three album series that began with Tapestry and continued with her Music album. Few artists have ever made three albums of the quality and entertainment value of these three albums (Rhymes & Reasons being the last of those three) but one does not need the other two to enjoy the beauty of this one, they just enhance the experience.
