Carole King


My sister Jeana suggested that I blog about Carole King.  Her hit album in 1971 was Tapestry. I can't really say how I became such a "groupie" of her, but I nearly made my family go crazy with the constant playing, re-playing and re-playing of this particular album.

I would dance and sing for hours in the front room of our home listening to this album on our Motorola Stereo. I got to go to many of her concerts and still love to listen and sing to Carole King.
In case you are or were a FAN of Carole, here are the songs that were on that album:

I Feel the Earth Move
So Far Away
It's Too Late
Home Again
Beautiful
Way Over Yonder
You've Got a Friend
Where You Lead
Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?
Smackwater Jack
Tapestry
(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman

Hey Melanie, this is Michelle. I finally found your blog website again and found your posting about Carole King. YYYYEAAAAHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do you remember who you went to her first concert with? Hmmmm mmmmm if you don't. You, me Michelle Gentile and I cannot remember if Cherie went with us or not. I just remember your folks took us and my folks picked us up. All the way into big old LA and we were only 12 years old. would we let our 12 year old girls venture out into that scarey town nowdays? I too, still LOVE Carole King.
