Tapestry is the second studio album by American singer-songwriter Carole King, released in 1971 on Ode Records and produced by Lou Adler. It is one of the best-selling albums of all time, with over 25 million copies sold worldwide. In the United States, it has been certified Diamond by the RIAA with more than 10 million copies sold. It received four Grammy Awards in 1972, including Album of the Year.

Per Carole King: just sort of happened, that I had started a needlepoint tapestry a few months before we did the album, and I happened to write a song called ‘Tapestry,’ not even connecting the two up in my mind. I was just thinking about some other kind of tapestry, the kind that hangs and is all woven, or something, and I wrote that song. Tapestry" Track Info. Written By Carole King. Recorded At A&M Studios, Los Angeles, California. Tapestry Carole King.

Tapestry (Carole King album). This article is about the Carole King album. For other albums called Tapestry, see Tapestry (disambiguation), § Album. Tapestry is the second album by American singer-songwriter Carole King, released in 1971 on Ode Records and produced by Lou Adler. The lead single from the album - "It's Too Late"/"I Feel the Earth Move" - spent five weeks at number one on both the Billboard Hot 100 and Easy Listening charts

Freed from all the baggage, Carole King’s second album still overflows with emotionally honest, subtly soulful singing; masterfully written tunes that blend pop, folk, and R&B; and warm, organic but seamless production. But it’s the unguarded intimacy of Tapestry we love most, particularly on highlights like It’s Too Late and You’ve Got a Friend. Difficult as it may be, imagine for a minute that Tapestry wasn’t one of the most successful albums in music history; that it wasn’t a defining touchstone for both the boomer generation and the singer/songwriter movement. Freed from all the baggage, Carole King’s second album still overflows with emotionally honest, subtly soulful singing; masterfully written tunes that blend pop, folk, and R&B; and warm, organic but seamless production.

Of the 12 tracks on Carole King's Tapestry, released in early 1971, seven have become pop music standards, the kind of songs practically every music fan has heard. I Feel the Earth Move," "So Far Away," "It's Too Late," "You've Got a Friend," "Where You Lead," "Will You Love Me Tomorrow"" and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" are all songs that I've been aware of for as long as I can remember, songs that have always been around. And that's the biggest achievement here, that so many classic pop songs are on the same release. The album might be mostly just King and a piano, but Tapestry features enough easy-listening goodness to last any listener a lifetime.

Carole King's Tapestry made her a star in 1971, but before most of the album's devotees knew her name, she already had been an enormously ­successful ­songwriter for more than a decade. King and lyricist-­husband Gerry Goffin spent most of the '60s writing hits like Little Eva's "The Loco-Motion" and The Monkees' "Pleasant Valley Sunday" (which reached No. 1 and No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, respectively). The cover art for Tapestry, taken by famed rock ­photographer Jim McCrary, is an iconic vision of Southern Californian hippie bliss: King, barefoot and frizzy-haired, ­relaxing by her window with a crafts project and a cat. Neighbors who dropped by to record included Joni Mitchell and James Taylor. Taylor's own version of Tapestry's "You've Got a Friend" became the ­second No. 1 single written by King in 1971 and won the ­performer his first Grammy.

Carole King’s second album, Tapestry, has fulfilled the promise of her first and confirmed the fact that she is one of the most creative figures in all of pop music. It is an album of surpassing personal-intimacy and musical accomplishment and a work infused with a sense of artistic purpose. It is also easy to listen to and easy to enjoy. Miss King’s past accomplishments have become something of a pop music legend.

  • Voodoogore
Pressing is clean and quiet, but there was no warmth or richness to the sound. It sounded digitally inauthentic.
  • Ferri - My name
I have an early 70s pressing and compared it with this reissue by doing back to back spins. The reissue is not nearly as good in sound quality, it has that harsh digital sound to my ears. Too bad because this is an iconic record and deserves better treatment.
  • Thohelm
My copy of this pressing sounds okay, but I felt like the music was coming from nextdoor rather than having the band in the room with me.
