50th Anniversary Pressing On Vinyl LP!

Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 25/500!

In honor of the 50th Anniversary of Carole King's iconic album, Tapestry, this February 2021 - Legacy is excited to be reissuing the album on vinyl!

"For a decade, Carole King wrote pop songs with her then-husband, Gerry Goffin: hits such as Little Eva's 'The Loco-Motion' (Eva Boyd was the couple's babysitter) and the Monkees' 'Pleasant Valley Sunday.' Then King's friend James Taylor encouraged her to sing her own tunes. 'He just made it look so easy,' she recalled. 'So I did Tapestry in the same spirit.' She slowed down 'Will You Love Me Tomorrow?' (originally a hit for the Shirelles in 1961), with Taylor and Joni Mitchell on background vocals, heightening the melancholy inside, while her warm, earnest singing brought out the sadness in 'It's Too Late' and the earthy joy on 'I Feel the Earth Move.' As King later recalled, 'I wasn't in the same league vocally with Aretha Franklin, Joni Mitchell, Barbara Streisand. But I knew how to convey the mood and emotion of a song with honest, straight-from-the-heart interpretation.' The resulting collection of songs saw King remake herself as an artist and became one of the biggest-selling albums of all time, creating the reigning model for the 1970s female singer-songwriter." - Rolling Stone, The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 25/500

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.
