American Top 40 Flashback - Carole King

40 years on, and it still sounds great. People may have forgotten that Carole King was already a great songwriter before she released "Tapestry." And while she hasn't released anything since that approaches the greatness of that landmark, it by itself was enough to secure her a place in the pop pantheon.

And this song was the best thing on it. "It's Too Late," Carole King, the #1 song this week in 1971.

Great look back at this one, Jeff. It seems my high school life would center upon this album and this song. Thanks.
