Carole King (3751 words)
Ironically, Ode's first move after signing King was to package her in a "rock band" that actually consisted of just her and three sidemen - bassist Charles Larkey and guitarist Danny Kortchmar, both of whom backed King on her later albums (Larkey eventually married King), and studio ace Jim Gordon.
Produced as usual by Adler; the rhythm section is Charles Larkey and Andy Newmark.
The good news is the brief opening title track, with an inventive string arrangement (by King), and the stripped-down ballad "Time Alone." Her least commercially successful effort since her 1970 debut, and a big disappointment for her fans.
