    Liner Note Author: Allen Jackson .
    The two-disc set A NATURAL WOMAN collects the highlights of Carole King's eight-year tenure at Lou Adler's Ode Records. Of course, of the several albums she released between 1968 and 1976, one stands out above all others; TAPESTRY is an all-time classic, the definitive '70s singer/songwriter album and the epitome of piano rock. A NATURAL WOMAN treats the album with the respect it deserves, including it in its entirety.
    What's remarkable about this 36-track collection is that as brilliant as songs like "It's Too Late," "Where You Lead" and "So Far Away" are, the rest of the set is nearly up to their level. In fact, listening to the songs from the follow-up RHYMES AND REASONS, it's remarkable that this album didn't match the stratospheric commercial success of its predecessor. The set also includes rarities like the 1972 movie song "Pocket Money" and four unreleased tracks, two live takes including a duet with James Taylor on "You're Got A Friend" and two surprisingly fine outtakes from RHYMES AND REASONS.

  • Critic Reviews
    Q (1/95, p.269) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...this chronologically presented collation starts well...goes stellar...then gradually, amid the welter of album tracks and the occasional rarity, fritters pleasantly away..."
