Carole King - Writer (1970) [2007, Japanese Paper Sleeve]

is the debut album by and was released in 1970. already had a successful career as a songwriter, and been a part of , a short-lived group she formed after moving to Los Angeles in 1968. Tracks on the album include which was a number 4 hit for in 1962, and , which has been recorded by , among others. The album did not receive much attention upon its release, though it entered the chart following the success of 's next album, , in 1971. Reviewers rate it positively if not as highly as , one noting that it was the "most underrated of all [her] original albums". And, in a review that also covered in Rolling Stone, wrote, "Writer was a blessing despite its faults" and that though the "production was poor", herself made the album "very worthwhile". is the most underrated of all of 's original albums, in that it was completely ignored when it came out in 1971 and didn't really start to sell until whetted everyone's appetite for her work. It's an album of its time, in both King's life and career, and the music of its era - singer/songwriters were still something new, and in 1970, it was assumed that anyone in rock had to tend toward the extrovert and flashy to attract attention. Thus, has a somewhat louder sound than the relatively lean, introspective strains of which followed. which opens the record, features playing full-out electric guitar, chopping and crunching away with his amp turned way up, and King belting out a number behind his bluesy licks that makes her sound like and the song come off like a pounding (and good) number of the same era, with a great vocal hook at the end of the verses. with its soulful instrumental and backing arrangement, calls to mind not only her own as done by , but also (in terms of New York white women belting out soul) at her best, and it's also a great tune with a killer performance by , whose wailing voice is extraordinarily powerful here. is the closest that the album gets to the voice that she found on , while gives a more personal and elegant take to a song that is otherwise thoroughly identified with ; and has diving into country music, which she pulls off with exceptional grace, the song's title referring to a beguilingly innocent and free-spirited chorus that, once heard, stays with you. Even the least interesting of the songs here, is unusual in the context of 's overall work, with its heavy acoustic rhythm guitar, soaring backing vocals, and King's bold near-falsetto on the choruses. And that's just Side One of the original LP - Side Two opens a little more slackly with the beautiful, reflective, but slightly too languid and the delightful which offers a soaring guitar showcase for (whose playing intersects the sounds of and off of ' ), and a head-spinning, swirling organ from weaving below and around King's piano, plus one of 's most playful vocals on record. The album ends on a special high note, 's singer/songwriter-styled reinterpretation of which anticipates the sound she would perfect for , emphasizing words and their feeling and meaning as much as music, and expressing herself principally through her voice and piano, moving the band out of the way. Ironically enough, if had been released by almost any other artist, it would command a near-top rating and probably be a fondly remembered period cult item today; instead, for all of its merits, it must stand in the shadow of 's more accomplished and distinctive work that followed - but even slightly "off-brand," under-developed music from 1970 is still worth hearing today.
