We all know and love the Carole King who wrote some of the biggest hits of the ‘60s, from “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” to “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.” We also know her as the comforting and unique voice of Tapestry. But in between–and not nearly as well known–is King’s psych-folk band, The City, and their album, Now That Everything’s Been Said.
In 1967, King headed west to Laurel Canyon and joined forces with bassist Charles Larkey (of The Myddle Class), guitarist and singer Danny Kortchmar (of The Fugs), and drummer Jim Gordon (of Derek & The Dominos). The City was born.
Now That Everything’s Been Said, which was produced by the amazing Lou Adler, is deep and soulful, imperfect but teeming with life. And the songs, with King writing or co-writing all but one, are as exceptional as you’d expect.
Reissued here on deluxe vinyl for the first time, this is, at long last, a chance for this remarkable lost album to be heard.
