Carole King's "Tapestry" Gets Re-Release
Singer/songwriter Carole King's mega-selling 1971 pop masterpiece Tapestry is getting a re-release courtesy of Epic/Ode/Legacy.
Tapestry : Legacy Edition will hit stores on April 22nd in a two-disc special edition.
Disc One features a remastered edition of the original 12 track album which boasted a boatload of hit singles (many of which are now standards) including "It's Too Late", "I Feel The Earth Move", "So Far Away", "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", "(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman" and "You've Got A Friend".
Disc Two is made up of previously unreleased concert versions of the "Tapestry" songs that were recorded in Boston, Maryland, Central Park and San Francisco in 1973 and 1976.
Before setting out to record her own material, Carole King was better known as one half of the Brill Building songwriting team of Goffin and King.
With her then-husband Gerry Goffin, King wrote a ton of chart-toppers for some of the most famous artists of the day including “Up On the Roof” (Drifters), “The Loco-Motion” (Little Eva), “One Fine Day” (Chiffons), “I’m Into Somethin’ Good” (Herman’s Hermits), and “Take a Giant Step” and “Pleasant Valley Sunday” (Monkees).
