When Carole King performed Tapestry: Live in Hyde Park in 2016, in front of a rapturous audience of more than 65,000 fans, it marked the 45th anniversary of a zeitgeist-shifting touchstone album that established her as a quintessential singer-songwriter, a "Natural Woman" who gave voice to the emotions and experiences of millions of listeners around the world.
The show was recorded, and the package is released to disc next week, to sate fans who were at the show, and those who missed out.
And Total MK has teamed up with Legacy Recordings to give away copies in this week's competition.
With songs that are literally woven into the fabric of pop culture, Tapestry struck a universal chord, topping the Billboard 200 for 15 weeks and staying on the chart for six years.
King took home four Grammy Awards for the album, including Album, Record and Song of the Year. And the songs, including “So Far Away,” “It’s Too Late,” “I Feel The Earth Move,” “You’ve Got a Friend” and others remain timeless standards and radio staples.
The artist's largest concert since her legendary 1973 show in Central Park, Carole King's historic Hyde Park performance marked her first British concert since 1989 and the first time she'd performed Tapestry on stage in its entirety.
The album showcases Carole leading a full band (including guitarist Danny "Kootch" Kortchmar, who played on the original Tapestry album) through the album with the bonus addition of some of her personal favorite compositions from her formidable songbook.
Guest performers include her daughter, Louise Goffin, who joins Carole on several tracks including “Where You Lead” (which the duo re-recorded as the theme song to the popular television series "Gilmore Girls") plus the Laurence Olivier Award-winning West End cast of "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical."
Originally released in 1971, Tapestry established Carole King, already a noted songwriter of smash hits for Aretha Franklin, The Everly Brothers, The Monkees, The Drifters and many others, as an extraordinary performer who defines the singer-songwriter genre from the 1970s onward.
The package includes the full concert on CD/DVD and CD/Blu-ray and is rounded out with insightful recollections from Carole about the making of Tapestry.
