Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kerry Dexter
"Very personal, very accessible statements, built from the ground up with a simple, elegant architecture," says James Taylor of the songs Carole King wrote for this multimillion selling album which charted for more than half a decade in the '70s. Taylor who played guitar on "Way Over Yonder," "I Feel the Earth Move," and several other cuts knows what he's talking about. Though you might think that tunes such as "A Natural Woman," "You've Got a Friend," and "Where You Lead" have been worn thin by time and uninspired covers by every lounge singer in the world, heard in the voice of the original songwriter, they still sound astonishingly fresh.

"Very personal, very accessible statements, built from the ground up with a simple, elegant architecture," says James Taylor of the songs Carole King wrote for this multimillion selling album which charted for more than half a decade in the '70s. Taylor who played guitar on "Way Over Yonder," "I Feel the Earth Move," and several other cuts knows what he's talking about. Though you might think that tunes such as "A Natural Woman," "You've Got a Friend," and "Where You Lead" have been worn thin by time and uninspired covers by every lounge singer in the world, heard in the voice of the original songwriter, they still sound astonishingly fresh. The album was remastered from the original recordings by the original producer, Lou Adler, and there are two bonus tracks: "Out in the Cold," a previously unreleased cut from the original sessions, and a live version of "Smackwater Jack."
All Music Guide - Jason Ankeny
Carole King brought the fledgling singer/songwriter phenomenon to the masses with Tapestry, one of the most successful albums in pop music history. A remarkably expressive and intimate record, it's a work of consummate craftsmanship. Always a superior pop composer, King reaches even greater heights as a performer; new songs like the hits "It's Too Late" and "I Feel the Earth Move" rank solidly with past glories, while chestnuts like "You've Got a Friend," "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow," and "You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman" take on added resonance when delivered in her own warm, compelling voice. With its reliance on pianos and gentle drumming, Tapestry is a light and airy work on its surface, occasionally skirting the boundaries of jazz, but it's also an intensely emotional record, the songs confessional and direct; in its time it connected with listeners like few records before it, and it remains an illuminating experience decades later. [The 1999 CD reissue on Sony adds two bonus tracks: the previously unreleased outtake "Out in the Cold" and a previously unreleased live 1973 version on solo piano of "Smackwater Jack."]

    Wonderful songs

    I was in high school when this album came out and to this day, the music remains top notch. Wonderful songs like It's Too Late, Natural Woman... my very favorite CD, past and present.
