Clips & Pix: Carole King/Beautiful

Today, Carole King turned 78 years. She’s one of my favorite singer-songwriters of all time, so it felt right to post something. And what could possibly be better than selecting a tune titled Beautiful!

Moreover, this song is from Tapestry, the timeless 1971 gem that means a lot to me. This record, together with a few others (all vinyl, of course), marked the start of my journey into the beautiful world of music in the mid-’70s.

Happy birthday!

One thought on “Clips & Pix: Carole King/Beautiful”

  1. I love Carole King. She was not my intro (that would be my mom), but she played a huge role in my evolving love of music. My girlfriend (who has now been my wife for more than 46 years) had the 8-track of this album. We would ride around town listening and singing along over and over and over. Love that album. By the way, there was once tribute album recorded of “Tapestry” with other artists singing every track. Pretty good, actually. [1995, “Tapestry Revisited: A Tribute to Carole King”]
