Single layer SACD Stereo and 5.1 multi-channel
Carole King's Tapestry is one of the rare albums that immediately plays in your head the moment its title, cover art, or songs are mentioned. Having achieved status of near-mythical proportions, it is the singer-songwriter record you'd bring to the proverbial desert island if you were limited to one choice.
Faithful to original album producer Lou Adler's vision of making King (and not just any piano player) appear seated and playing in front of listeners, this numbered, limited edition SACD delivers utmost transparency, balance, warmth, intimacy, and perhaps most importantly, feeling.
The results mirror what went down in the A&M Studios. Lean, simple, direct, and so nakedly real, the sonics evoke what might be heard on a professional demo tape. This collectable SACD gives what Rolling Stone deems the 36th Greatest Album of All Time the due it deserves.
King's personal singing, her graceful pianism, the integral rhythmic foundation provided by the likes of drummer Russ Kunkel and guitarist Danny Kortchmar, and the symmetrical contributions of guest instrumentalists ranging from saxophonist Curtis Amy to guitarist James Taylor resonate with three-dimensional imaging and cozy realism. Every note, every basic movement, accurately rendered with exquisite detail and full-bodied tonality.
