Carole King’s Tapestry is the rare record that plays in your head the moment its title, cover art, or songs are mentioned. Ranked the 36th Greatest Album of All Time by Rolling Stone, it is the singersongwriter LP you’d bring to the proverbial desert island if you were limited to one choice. Indeed, one reason Tapestry endures— apart from the flawless songwriting, earnest deliveries, and eloquent performances—owes to the naturalness of the production and songs. King’s articulations on love, conviction, friendship, place, sadness, and companionship ring true because there’s no doubting their meaning, intent, or sincerity. Tapestry makes you feel. It compels you to get closer to the music and the musicians performing.
