The Essential Carole King (2 CD)

The duality of her musical career as a singer and songwriter is at the heart of THE ESSENTIAL CAROLE KING. With liner note essays written by Sirius/XM rock and roll legend Andrew Loog Oldham (founding manager and producer of the Rolling Stones) and by L.A.-based music journalist/historian Harvey Kubernik, THE ESSENTIAL CAROLE KING uniquely profiles the career of this beloved singer and songwriter. Compilation producers Lou Adler, Steve Berkowitz, and Rob Santos present an overview of her own recordings as an artist on Disc One/The Singer, while Disc Two/The Songwriter reveals a collection of her compositions (co-written with Gerry Goffin, among others) recorded throughout the '60s by pop's greatest names.
