  • one of my earliest crushes was Carly Simon, thanks to this album which my parents had. I was captivated not only by her looks and her voice but also by her fashion. I was 8 when this came out and I’d never seen anyone who dressed like she did. I thought she was so cool. This album (Hotcakes, 1974) had Mockingbird (with her then husband James Taylor) and Haven’t Got Time For The Pain on it. I’d lay on the white shag carpet in the living room, wearing my dad’s Sennheiser headphones, listening and staring at these pictures for hours. (I also crushed on Linda Ronstadt)  #carlysimon #jamestaylor #hotcakes #1974 #firstcrush #lindaronstadt

  • STEREOGUM: Your career helps mark the start of a whole new genre in a way, the “’70s singer-songwriter.” How does it feel to be the foundation of a new category of music, to embody that?
.
JAMES: People have told me that before, but I didn’t invent it by any means. If I look at people that I think were the sort of pioneers of that style I think of people like Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan. But I did my version of it. People like Dave Van Ronk (the folksinger who inspired Inside LLewyn Davis), Eric Andersen, or Tim Hardin, the guy who wrote “If I Were A Carpenter” … there were a lot of people that influenced me. I’m sort of surprised that people would credit me with inventing that. Joni Mitchell was already doing it when I came out of the box, so was Randy Newman. So I can’t really take credit for it. - stereogum.com, May 18, 2015

  • ; Hello everyone! After much time, I have returned. It is currently reading week, so I have a few extra minutes to post on this account after all of this time.
Today I want to showcase Carole King (@carole_king). Specifically because yesterday I watched a concert clip on Youtube of a BBC4 coverage concert in 1971. It’s a great watch and listen for anyone interested.

Carole is an American singer-songwriter, born in 1942. According to online sources, her success began in the 1960’s when she began writing with her first husband. From there, she continued to write songs. Her famous album, Tapestry, held the record for the most weeks at Number One by a female artist for more than 20 years! She has won 4 Grammy Awards, and was inducted to both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame for her work. Not to mention many other honours. 
The thing I love about Carole is her unique style. She is exceptionally talented at songwriting, not only that, but singing as well. She has fantastic control when she plays instruments. She is able to belt out notes, as well as play forte, and then just as quickly soften her playing and singing. Even singing softly, she has control. Her voice is gravelly, but it’s soothing. 
She is natural in her talent, in her voice, in her songwriting - and this makes her resonate with so many audiences. The focus is the music, as it should be, and it works wonderfully. 
I think I would love to meet Ms. King, as she seems like a wonderful lady. She has an infectious smile, and I would love for her to teach me about her songwriting process and tips she would have. She seems so friendly and kind, and she has deserved every point of recognition, as her talent is superb.
Be sure to check out her music, as well as the concert I mentioned above! You won’t be disappointed.
Until next time, music lovers 💕🎼🎹🎸🎤🎧 #tapestryalbum #madsmusicmoment #seventiesmusic #goodmusic #musicrecommendation #caroleking #70smusic #oldies #1971 #jamestaylor #goodmusic

  • I have given it some thought, I keep getting the question, “What’s your favorite album?” This question has been weighing on my mind for a little while, and I am proud to say that I have come to my ending point and at that finish line I have found Carole King and her masterpiece: “Tapestry” This album is jam packed with good song after good song, her brilliant song writing mixed the lyrical genius that was imbued in a great collaboration only that of which a true love connection could foster! This album is a constant inspiration! #tapestry #caroleking #vinylginger #happymonday #vinylrecords #records #recordcollection #naturalwoman #arethafranklin #jamestaylor

  • Jim Croce Performing “Operator” (Repost) In the music industry, arguably the worst tragedy that can befall an artist is to die in his or her prime, when just beginning to break through to the mainstream and reach people on a national or international level. One such artist was Jim Croce, a songwriter with a knack for both upbeat, catchy singles and empathetic, melancholy ballads. Though Croce only recorded a few studio albums before an untimely plane crash, he continues to be remembered posthumously. Croce appealed to fans as a common man, and it was not a gimmick -- he was a father and husband who went through a series of blue-collar jobs. And whether he used dry wit, gentle emotions, or sorrow, Croce sang with a rare form of honesty and power. Few artists have ever been able to pull off such down-to-earth storytelling as convincingly as he did.

  • Perfect soundtrack to my Sunday: James Taylor, The Warner Bros Albums 1970-1976 (boxset). These newly remastered versions of the albums that catapulted his career include signature tracks like “Sweet Baby James,” “Fire And Rain,” “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight,” “Walking Man,” “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You),” “Mexico,” “Shower The People” and Carole King’s “You’ve Got A Friend”. There’s something about James Taylor’s voice pressed against an acoustic guitar that’s instantly calming. 
This newly released boxset is an epic collection from one of music’s best singer/songwriters.
