This weeks throwie thursday i decided to go with an artist thats been in my heavy rotation alot lately, Singer/Song writer/Fierce bitch Miss Carole King with the song "Tapestry" from one of the best albums of all time Tapestry. Not only is the album critically acclaimed, and a personal favorite of mine, it sold like hot cakes! check it out.

Tapestry would remain on the charts for nearly six years and sell over 10
million copies in the United States alone, an estimated 22 million world-wide,
remaining her most popular album among fans and critics alike. The album
garnered four Grammy Awards including Album of the Year; Best Pop Vocal
Performance, Female; Record of the Year ("It's Too Late"); and Song of the Year
("You've Got a Friend").

Along with being an amazing musician Carole has penned songs for dozens of artist, most notably "Natural Woman" by Aretha Franklin, "Some Kind Of Wonderful" by Marvin Gaye and "If its Over" by Mariah Carey, just to name a VERY FEW.

Now Clicky Clicky and take a listen to this beautiful song thats beautifully written by Carole and then head over to wiki and read up on this musical genius

Now that's what's up ... I have a vinyl copy of this and I love to put it on on a rainy Sunday morning and kick back. She's the truth. I love the story of her buying stacks and stacks of Donny Hathaway's first album and passing it out to people because she loved it so much. Nice entry here.
