Tapestry by Carole King ranked # 36 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums list.
Tapestry is a ground-breaking pop album by singer-songwriter Carole
King, released in 1971. The album features King's well-crafted,
heartfelt songs sung in her honest, intriguing voice with minimal
production by Lou Adler. It has earned a spot as one of the
quintessential recordings of the rock era.
Tapestry was ranked number 1 for fifteen weeks and remained on the
charts for over six years. The album also garnered four Grammy Awards
including Album of the Year; Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female;
Record of the Year ("It's Too Late"); and Song of the Year ("You've
Got a Friend").
King wrote or co-wrote all of the songs on the album, several of
which had already been hits for other artists such as Aretha
Franklin's "(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman" and the
Shirelles's "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?". James Taylor, who
encouraged King to sing her own songs, would have a #1 hit with
"You've Got A Friend."
