EDITORS’ NOTES

Carole King had worked as a Brill Building songwriter with partner Gerry Goffin before embarking on her own solo career during the singer-songwriter era of the early ‘70s. King’s second solo album, Tapestry, became one of the best-selling albums of all time and songs such as “I Feel The Earth Move,” “So Far Away,” “It’s Too Late” and “You’ve Got a Friend” became a part of the international music vocabulary. While many of her songs became better known by other artists — who doesn’t think of James Taylor when it comes to “Friend” or the Shirelles with “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” — King had the vocal and performance chops to stand on her own. Her introverted way made her an unlikely star, but her talent could not be denied. This collection includes “Child of Mine” from her first solo album, Writer, and select tracks from her solo work leading up to her more recent collaborations in 2001 with Babyface (“You Can Do Anything”) and Céline Dion (“The Reason”).

where is the second disc?

What made the CD release of this Carole King collection special was disc 2. It contained songs that she had written, but had been recorded by other artists. The songs on disc 2, sung by Carole, have never been available previously. Why Itunes left this out is beyond me.......but I will order the CD instead, for about the same price................
