iTunes Review

In addition to being one of the best examples of old school “mom rock,” this essential Carole King compilation percolates with the warm familiarity of so many classic hits you may find yourself thinking, “This is a Carole King song too?” Culled from her eight year tenure on Ode Records, this double disc set runs 36 tracks deep into her solo songs as well as historical collaborations. The Ode Collection opens with the soulful stroll of “Hi-De-Ho” and ends with a flawlessly performed live take of “You’ve Got A Friend.” If you’re wondering why King’s ‘71 sophomore album Tapestry is included here in its entirety, it’s because every single song on Tapestry is unarguably great. Generation X-ers who grew up with macramé crafting moms are sure to remember “Really Rosie,” from King’s earthy toned ‘75 animated musical T.V. special by the same name. The jovial “Alligators All Around” is also from Really Rosie and along with various vintage episodes of Sesame Street, it still stands up today as an awesome way to teach small children that the alphabet can be a funky thing.

I could really do without the kid songs, and I really wanted "Anyone At All."

Right now, the only way to get that song is to pay for the entire "You've Got Mail" soundtrack, whether you want all the songs or not (and I don't; I just want "Anyone at All".) And I already have "Tapestry", and everything on that is on this. But there are one or two songs in this collection that are fun, like King's version of "Hi-De-Ho." popularized by Blood, Sweat and Tears, and "It's Going to Take Sometime," made famous by the Carpenters. So what's up, Carole? Why can't I get the one song I really want without being gouged? Are you that out of touch with the fans? There's a recession on, you know!

While the landmark Tapestry album earned her superstar status, singer/songwriter Carole King had already firmly established herself as one of pop music's most gifted and successful composers, with work recorded by everyone from the Beatles to Aretha Franklin. Born Carole Klein on February 9, 1942 in Brooklyn, New York, she began playing piano at the age of four, and formed her first band, the vocal quartet the Co-Sines, while in high school. A devotee of the composing team of Jerry Lieber and Mike...
