Tapestry: The Music of Carole King
This is a beautiful re-creation of the Carole King songbook performed with live band and multi-media images. Carole King is without question the most successful and revered female singer-songwriter in pop music history. More than 400 of her compositions have been recorded by over a thousand artists, resulting in 100 hit singles. It was her 1971 album "Tapestry" that took King to the pinnacle, winning all three of the key Grammy Awards - record, song and album of the year as well as best female vocalist honors for King. With more than 25 million units sold, Tapestry remained the best-selling album by a female artist for a quarter century, and King went on to amass three other platinum and seven gold albums. Starring Jeannie Austin on piano and vocals with her back-up singers and band, Tapestry: Tribute to Carole King faithfully recreates the glorious sound of a Carole King concert, complete with such hits as "You've Got a Friend," "Take Good Care of My Baby, "The Loco-motion," "Natural Woman," "It's Too Late," "So Far Away," "I Feel the Earth Move" and more.
