Carole King (born Carol Joan Klein, February 9, 1942) is an American singer-songwriter who has been active since 1958, initially as one of the staff songwriters at the Brill Building and later as a solo artist. She is the most successful female songwriter of the latter half of the 20th century in the US, having written or co-written 118 pop hits on the Billboard Hot 100. King also wrote 61 hits that charted in the UK.
King’s major success began in the 1960s when she and her first husband, Gerry Goffin, wrote more than two dozen chart hits, many of which have become standards, for numerous artists. She has continued writing for other artists since then. King’s success as a performer in her own right did not come until the 1970s, when she sang her own songs, accompanying herself on the piano, in a series of albums and concerts. After experiencing commercial disappointment with her debut album Writer, King scored her breakthrough with the album Tapestry, which topped the U.S. album chart for 15 weeks in 1971 and remained on the charts for more than six years.
King has made 25 solo albums, the most successful being Tapestry, which held the record for most weeks at No. 1 by a female artist for more than 20 years. Her record sales were estimated at more than 75 million copies worldwide. She has won four Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for her songwriting. She is the recipient of the 2013 Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, the first woman to be so honored. She is also a 2015 Kennedy Center Honoree.

EDGAR WINTER GROUP
They Only Come Out at Night is the third studio album by Edgar Winter and the first by the Edgar Winter Group. A commercial hit, the album reached the #3 slot on the Billboard 200 chart and also features two of the band’s biggest songs: “Frankenstein” (#1 on the Billboard Hot 100) and “Free Ride” (#14 on that same chart). Musically, besides the country track “Round & Round,” the album features a mixture of mostly blues rock and boogie woogie induced rock in a generally carefree and upbeat sound. The album eventually sold two million copies.
In 2006, the album was reissued on Super Audio CD by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab as well as the 2008 Quadraphonic rendition was reissued by SBME Sony BMG (Bertelsmann Music Group) Music Entertainment. In the same year, it was featured in the video game Prey.
Writer Stephen King mentioned the album (specifically its cover artwork) in his 1975 novel ‘Salem’s Lot.
The album is mentioned in the song “I Love My Dad” by Sun Kil Moon on their 2014 album Benji.
The Australian cassette issue of the album in 1973 transposes “Undercover Man” and “Frankenstein” (i.e. Frankenstein ends side A instead of side B) and has a wholly different cover: a photo of the band posing against a black background. The American cassette follows the same track order as the Australian issue, but retains the original cover.
The album was certified gold April 30, 1973 by the RIAA.
Besides being a commercial success, the album has received many highly positive critical reviews. Writing for AllMusic, critic Michael B. Smith praised the “party” and “sing-along” feel of the album. He remarked, “While this album will forever be remembered for spawning the huge hit singles ‘Frankenstein’ and ‘Free Ride,’ there’s plenty more to appreciate on this stellar release.”
Music is the third album by American singer-songwriter Carole King. It is a continuation of the style laid down in Tapestry. The album was released in December 1971 and quickly rose to the top of the charts. It features songs such as “It’s Going to Take Some Time” (US No. 12 by The Carpenters), “Sweet Seasons,” a No. 9 hit for Carole King, and “Brother, Brother”.
Carole King: Music experienced immediate success and was certified gold on December 9, 1971, days after release. It was certified platinum on July 17, 1995. The album reportedly sold 1,300,000 copies in the United States on the day of its release.
Music entered the top ten at No. 8, becoming the first of many weeks both Tapestry and Carole King: Music would occupy the top ten simultaneously. The album hit No. 1 on New Year’s Day 1972 and stayed there for three consecutive weeks.

Carole King (born February 9, 1942) is an American singer and songwriter. Her career began in the 1960s when King, along with her former husband Gerry Goffin, wrote more than two dozen chart hits for numerous artists, many of which have become standards, and she has continued writing for other artists since then. She had her first number 1 hit as a songwriter in 1960 at age 18, with “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”, which she wrote with Goffin. In 1997, she co-wrote “The Reason”, which was a hit for Celine Dion.
Her success as a performer in her own right did not come until the 1970s, when she would sing her own songs, accompanying herself on the piano, in a series of albums and concerts. After experiencing commercial disappointment with her debut album Writer, King scored her breakthrough with the album Tapestry which topped the U.S. album chart for 15 weeks in 1971 and remained on the charts for more than six years.
In 2000, Joel Whitburn, a Billboard Magazine pop music researcher, named her the most successful female songwriter of 1955–99 because she wrote or co-wrote 118 pop hits on the Billboard Hot 100. In 2005 music historian Stuart Devoy found her the most successful female songwriter on the UK singles charts 1952–2005.
King has made 25 solo albums, the most successful being Tapestry, which held the record for most weeks at #1 by a female artist for more than 20 years until broken by Whitney Houston (for the soundtrack album The Bodyguard). Her most recent non-compilation album was Live at the Troubadour in 2010, a collaboration with James Taylor that reached number 4 on the charts in its first week and has sold over 600,000 copies.
She has won four Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for her songwriting. She is the recipient of the 2013 Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, the first woman to be so honored. Source: Wikipedia
