Sony’s Legacy Recordings is to release Tapestry: Live at Hyde Park, a audio/video combo package of Carole King‘s concert in London’s Hyde Park last summer, that saw the legendary singer-songwriter perform her classic Tapestry album in full.
The 3 July 2016 concert marked the 45th anniversary of the Grammy winning album and this was the biggest audience she’d played to in over 40 years. She hadn’t played ANY concert in the UK since 1989, so this was definitely something of a big deal.
The band on the day included Danny “Kootch” Kortchmar, who played on the original Tapestry album and Carole’s daughter, Louise Goffin, who contributes to several tracks.
The setlist includes the album played in full along with some of King’s personal favourite compositions from her songbook, including a Gerry Goffin/Carole King medley featuring Take Good Care of My Baby, It Might As Well Rain Until September, Go Away Little Girl, I’m Into Something Good and One Fine Day.
This two-disc package offers the full concert on CD+blu-ray or CD+DVD (note: originally Sony hadn’t announced the blu-ray option). The latter includes some bonus recollections from Carole about the making of Tapestry.
Tapestry: Live at Hyde Park will be released on 1 September 2017
