The History of Carole King

With hits such as, “I Feel the Earth Move,” and a solo album, Tapestry, which was No. 1 and stayed on the album chart for six years, Carole has been writing pop hits since her teens. Music historian Gary Wenstrup tells her amazing story.

Carole was writing pop hits in her teens. “Will You Still Love Me,” “Up On The Roof,” “The Loco-Motion,” “One Fine Day.”  This alone would be the basis of a standout career.  Carole’s fortunes however explode in 1971 with the release of her solo album “Tapestry.”  It was #1 for 4 months and stayed on the album chart for over 6 years!  More and even bigger hits.  “You’ve Got A Friend,” ”So Far Away,” “It’s Too Late,” “I Feel The Earth Move.”
