Review of CAROLE KING: TAPESTRY

Heard parts of this on KBBI in Homer, Alaska this morning. Tapestry was the album coming out of every dorm room in Lathrop Hall at the University of Alaska Fairbanks my first year there. I thought I knew all about the album. Now I know a lot more. Thanks!

Review of CAROLE KING: TAPESTRY

Part Historical Document, part introduction anf part reintroduction to one of music's seminal moments and musical discoveries. Carole King's recording, "Tapestry" introduced the singer-songwriter into mainstream households. The recording became her calling card and a mandatory reference point for anyone in the '70s through the '90s who wanted to sing their own songs.

"Carole King: Tapestry," produced by Joyride Media, recounts the days, the business practices, the hoop jumping and creative adventures that brought music and musicians to the recording studio in the late '60s and '70s. Not a documentary, this is high level radio story telling about some truly (still) remarkable music, musicians and music producers. Host Rita Houston, and the show producers, keeps all of the music and Tapestry expert witnesses together. This story, like the music, never grows old.

For your post ATC slot, your program specials slot, and all weekend long, listeners will drop what they're doing for an amazing first time Carole King experience or for a wonderful reconnect with one of the big musical events of 1971.
