For more background check post on her debute "Writer: Carole King", Second album "Tapestry" became an immediate success and is today one of the best selling albums ever. It would have been almost impossible to match that with this follow-up - so she didn't. It stayed on Billboard #1 for three weeks and spawned a couple of high charting 45:s, yet far from the "Tapestry" super blast. Made with about the same crew and produced by Lou Adler. But while on "Tapestry" she'd partly relied on her back catalogue this consistes mainly of newly written songs, composed during the nine month gap between the albums. You get the same kind of elegant production and backing, but not the same obvious hit feeling. That's not always a bad thing. While a hit spangled album often get showed down your throat from friends and media, the less exposed have a chance to get a more private connection and therefore last longer. I'm listening now as I write and it's a very pleasant experience. Not that it changes my world or make me jump up and down with joy, but it sure puts me in a good mood. Issued world wide on vinyl, 8-track, cassette and CD through the years. Premiere US on Ode (SP-77013), also as quad (QU-88013). First UK came with label as shown here and matt fold/out cover with lyric insert. (FÄV*)
