Entertainment Reviews:

Mojo (Publisher) - p.117
4 stars out of 5 -- "Gerry Goffin and his wife Carole King took the music's a-lop-bam-boom immediacy and wove it into the fabric of teenage life, making the two inseparable."
Record Collector (magazine) - p.99
4 stars out of 5 -- "This collection gathers recordings other than the hits, and arranges them to show the development from pop ditties into more mature, richer writing."

If you only know Carole King as the denim-bedecked balladeer behind the singer-songwriter landmark TAPESTRY, or King and one-time husband Gerry Goffin only as the hitmeisters behind the Monkees, et al., this collection will set you straight. While it includes some of the pair's biggest hits for others (the Animals' "Don't Bring Me Down," etc.) it fills out the picture, showing that Goffin and King ventured into country (Skeeter Davis's "Let Me Get Close to You"), as well as turning out tunes for everyone from a pre-"Yellow Ribbon" Tony Orlando to a post-"Lion Sleeps Tonight" Tokens.
