    Like its immediate predecessor, 1971's MUSIC, 1972's RHYMES AND REASONS had to stand in the shadow of TAPESTRY, which was still fairly high in the charts when this was released. (TAPESTRY, after all, was the biggest-selling album of all time until SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER came along.) Still, RHYMES AND REASONS is on its own merits a fine album. Although it had no hits as big as "It's Too Late" or "Where You Lead," the high points on this album are just as artistically satisfying. The best-known track is probably the moving, almost hymn-like "Been To Canaan," which has remained an important part of King's repertoire in the years since. However, the album's twin highlights are a pair of gorgeous ballads, "Goodbye Don't Mean I'm Gone" and the hushed "I Think I Can Hear You."
