Song of the Day: 'It's Too Late' by Carole King


As was the case with the outtakes from Carly Simon's "Anticipation," I'm loving this adorable shot from the album cover shoot for Carole King's "Tapestry." (I like it even with out the kitty!) What a relief that the legendary singer/songwriter got into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last year -- how it took FIFTY years after the release of one of the best albums of all time is anyone's guess. (Oh, wait: misogyny.) I've written about "Tapestry" being one of only two LPs my mother owned when I was a child -- K-Tel's "Believe in Music" being the other(!) -- and how I played it over and over a again. Yet I'm realizing that somehow I have never actually used a track from it as my SOTD, which I am remedying right now!
