Today is Carole King's birthday. I think most people know her for her Tapestry album, which was ground-breaking and all that.
But my most favorite Carole King album is Really Rosie, her collaborative effort with Maurice Sendak.
Strangely, I don't believe I'd ever seen it when it was broadcast in the mid-70s, but instead only discovered it in the early-90s when I was working with children at a Kansas women's shelter and was looking for something fun to play for them.
She's also quite well known for her songwriting repertoire.
And probably her best known hit for Aretha Franklin:
I just want to say thank you to Carole King for all the wonderful music over the years.
