Carole King - Discography - 320kbps Bitrate

Carole King


Even before stepping out of the shadows into one of the brightest solo careers of all time, singer/songwriter Carole King had already firmly established herself as one of pop music's greatest composers, with work recorded by everyone from the Beatles to Aretha Franklin. Active as a songwriter in the legendary Brill Building since the late '50s, King eventually applied her gift for songcraft to her own albums, quickly producing 1971's landmark Tapestry. The album's flawless confluence of melodic hooks and soft rock textures would help define the entire era it soundtracked, going on to sell over 25 million units and stay consistently in the charts for over five years.

Born Carole Klein on February 9, 1942 in Brooklyn, New York, she began playing piano at the age of four, and formed her first band, the vocal quartet the Co-Sines, while in high school. A devotee of the composing team of Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller (the duo behind numerous hits for Elvis Presley, the Coasters, and Ben E. King), she became a fixture at influential DJ Alan Freed's local rock & roll shows; while attending Queens College, she fell in with budding songwriters Paul Simon and Neil Sedaka as well as Gerry Goffin, with whom she forged a writing partnership.

Hi mlc

When I get a chance I will change it so it is easier for everyone.

Ozzieguy said...

All good mlc, all of the others will be added again soon.
Do not feel dumb, some things are hard to understand for lots of people.

Hi, brother. Thank you for the posts. The link for "1971-The Carnegie Hall Concert June18,1971" is leading to "Tapestry (Legacy Edition)" and is missed.

Ozzieguy said...

Thanks Chocoreve

Ozzieguy said...

Sorry, I will try and get it fixed soon.

Ozzieguy said...

The link for Tapestry directs to "Music" ... not sure if you can fix this but if so, I would really appreciate it. :)

Ozzieguy said...

Hello William, I just checked it and it is okay.

Hello Ozzieguy,
First I would like to thank you for posting this great collection of songs/music of Carol King. I noticed when downloading "1971-Tapestry (LegacyEdition,2008)", I wind up with the file "1971-3zip" which relates to the previously listed Carol King Discography selection "1971-Music", which is not the Tapestry collection of songs. When you get a chance, could you please look into this and repost the songs for the Tapestry album? Thank you again.
