Carole King's touchstone masterpiece Tapestry — The Essential Edition! - Mastered at 45 RPM by Bernie Grundman
"This new double 45rpm reissue from ORG Music mastered by Bernie Grundman and Chris Bellman takes Tapestry as far as it probably will go and it's gone far... Whether its the 45rpm speed or something else, the kick drum on "So Far Away" pops as never before and that's just the start of what those familiar with the album might notice for the first time, like the clarity of the electric piano lines on "It's Too Late". The instrumental separation and overall spaciousness have never been more pronounced. Nor have the closely miked drums ever sounded this clean and full." - Michael Fremer, www.analogplanet.com, rated 10/10 Music, 9/10 Sound

Mastered from the Original Master Tapes:
The Audiophile Version For Which You've Been Waiting
Ten-Times Platinum Record One of Most Iconic and Influential Pop Efforts Ever Made 1971 Blockbuster Won Four Grammy Awards, Including Album of the Year Includes "I Feel the Earth Move," "You've Got a Friend," "(You Make Me Feel) Like a Natural Woman," "It's Too Late"
The harbinger of what became the mellow singer-songwriter movement, Tapestry is sublime art, a recording of graceful intimacy, confessional purpose, relaxed warmth, and soothing melody. Seemingly flawless, the 1971 world-beater is the rare kind of record that’s handed on to generations and resonates with undiminished returns.
A winner of four Grammy awards, and recipient of the rare diamond award for ten-times platinum sales, Tapestry resonates with humanity and authenticity. King burrows into the core of each note she sings, bringing out an affecting spectrum of hope, sadness, joy, melancholy, and longing. Every single track is a classic. King scored four Top 15 hits from the album herself, while, a year later, Barbra Streisand landed a hit with a cover of "Where You Lead." It's no wonder nearly every consequential female artist of the past several decades has cited Tapestry's influence.
Many versions have come and gone, but this audiophile-vetted edition — mastered from the original analog tapes at cut at 45RPM — towers above all previous editions and justifies why you own a turntable.
The crystal clarity, lifelike presence, and enviable warmth this pressing conveys will make you fall in love with this timeless, generation-crossing favorite again and again. If only all LPs sounded this good.
