Tapestry Revisited: A Tribute to Carole King

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Carole King's 1971 album Tapestry was one of the best-selling LPs of the early '70s and has had a lasting influence on pop singer/songwriters ever since. The idea of this tribute album was to re-create the album track-for-track using other artists. Since King had begun her career as a songwriter, with songs such as "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?" and "You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman" hitting for other artists before turning up on Tapestry, it was an appropriate concept. Though each artist was asked to submit a finished track, there was some musical continuity in that several tracks -- "You've Got a Friend," by BeBe & CeCe Winans, featuring Aretha Franklin, "Will...

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Carole King's 1971 album Tapestry was one of the best-selling LPs of the early '70s and has had a lasting influence on pop singer/songwriters ever since. The idea of this tribute album was to re-create the album track-for-track using other artists. Since King had begun her career as a songwriter, with songs such as "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?" and "You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman" hitting for other artists before turning up on Tapestry, it was an appropriate concept. Though each artist was asked to submit a finished track, there was some musical continuity in that several tracks -- "You've Got a Friend," by BeBe & CeCe Winans, featuring Aretha Franklin, "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?," by the Bee Gees, and "Smackwater Jack," by the Manhattan Transfer -- were produced by Arif Mardin, and a couple of others -- "So Far Away," by Rod Stewart, and "You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman," by Celine Dion -- were handled by David Foster. In such a project, casting is everything, and the best versions were turned in by artists who grew up with the original album, such as Amy Grant "It's Too Late", Richard Marx "Beautiful", and Faith Hill "Where You Lead". Such artists achieved a reasonable compromise between the King versions and their own sound. Artists like the Bee Gees and Stewart, who were King's contemporaries, seemed to be going through the motions, and a raft of newer artists, such as Eternal, Curtis Stigers, Blessid Union of Souls, All-4-One, and Dion, seemed to be on the album because someone at their management companies thought it would be a good idea and displayed little feel for the material. But King's music has a flexibility that allows for many interpretations, and while this album could not be recommended over the original, the new performances didn't do it much harm.

    Amazing Album

    This is a great album! The songs are all timeless classics, and the featured artists are wonderful! I absolutely love Amy Grant's "It's Too Late" and Rod Stewart's "So Far Away". Those are my favorite tracks. Wonderful tribute to Carol King!

    Familiar Classics With A Fresh Twist!

    The highlights of this album had to be 'I Feel The Earth Move' and 'You Got A Friend'. I particularly appreciated the creative R&B arrangement on 'I Feel The Earth Move' by Eternal -- the choir arrangement at the end of the song was also a fresh twist that any music fan would like. The noteworthy 'You've Got A Friend' was performed by BeBe & CeCe Winans and Aretha Franklin -- yes, the Queen of Soul herself! The rendition was thoroughly captivating. Bee Gee's take on 'Will You Love Me Tomorrow' was touching and brought back very fond memories for me. 'So Far Away', 'It's Too Late' and 'Where You Lead' all had very true reflections of the originals. And lastly, 'A Natural Woman' was given a distinctive diva treatment with Celine Dion giving a powerful delivery.
