5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Carole King, Queen of the Brill Building. 3 de junio de 2013
Por Hernando DeSoto - Publicado en
Formato: CD de audio Compra verificada
The Sound quality is excellent!

Most of these tracks are presented in stereo. Never once did I hear the sound of a needle dropping onto a vinyl surface.

This set should rightfully be called "Songs of Goffin and King" as, in those days, Carole composed songs with her then-husband, Gerry Goffin. As you can see from the tracks listings,Goffin and King dominated the talent-rich Brill Building Era writing songs for just about every important pop singer of the early sixties.

Bobby Vee, The Shirelles, The Drifters, The Everly Brothers, the list goes on and on.

This set also includes many alternate performances, b-sides and non-hit singles.

Perhaps, best of all, you will find Carol's early single releases: "It might as well rain until September", "I didn't have any summer romance" (A great record that should have been a hit), "School Bells are Ringin'" (a girl group hit undoubtedly inspired by The Loco-Motion and perhaps written for Claudine Clark (Party Lights).

There's much to like here and at a giveaway price. Grab one before it's gone!

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Thorough collection includes all her 1961-62 U.S. and U.K. hit records 30 de julio de 2013
Por TheNoomz83 - Publicado en
Formato: CD de audio
Don't be deceived by the front cover picture of Carole King in her late twenties. This 3-disc, 74-track set is entirely devoted to the 17-to-20-year-old Carole King of 1959-1962, starting as a teen girl rocker (which didn't take, but it's fun to listen to!) before moving on to composing hits at an astounding rate: how about 33 different records charting in the U.S. and U.K. in a two-year stretch ('61-62) - all before turning 21! In 1962 she was hitting the charts with a new record every two and a half weeks on average. Teamed with her husband Gerry Goffin, they logged twice as many number one songs in the U.S. in '61-62 (four) as did any other songwriter or songwriting team.

The four biggest Goffin-King hits of 1961-62:
- "The Loco-Motion" by Little Eva: #1 pop and R&B (U.S.) / #2 (U.K.)
- "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" by the Shirelles: #1 pop [their first #1 record] and #2 R&B (U.S.) / #4 (U.K.)
- "Go Away Little Girl" by Steve Lawrence: #1 pop and #14 R&B (U.S.) / by Mark Wynter: #6 (U.K.)
- "Take Good Care of My Baby" by Bobby Vee: #1 pop [for 3 weeks] (U.S.) / #3 (U.K.)

Twenty-year-old Carole King recorded one chart hit of her own in 1962, "It Might As Well Rain Until September," which rose to #3 in the U.K., while stalling at #22 in the U.S. The largest disparity of this kind was the Crickets' original version of Goffin-King's "Don't Ever Change" (notably performed live at the BBC by the Beatles) getting to #5 in the U.K., while failing to chart at all in the U.S.

Five songs appear in two different versions - in those cases in which there were competing Transatlantic hits (such as, most famously, "Go Away Little Girl" - the aforementioned Steve Lawrence and Mark Wynter versions - and "Up on the Roof" - by the Drifters in the U.S. [#5 pop and #4 R&B] and by Kenny Lynch in the U.K. [#10]). In the case of "When My Little Girl Is Smiling" there are three (!) different versions included here: the original U.S. release by the Drifters [#28 pop], plus two competing U.K. covers which coincidentally both peaked at #9.

The one hit song in this collection not co-written with her husband as lyricist is "Cryin' in the Rain" by the Everly Brothers (one of her most alluring melodies in my estimation), which got to #6 in both the U.S. and U.K. She co-wrote this one with Howard Greenfield, Neil Sedaka's usual collaborator at the time.

Doing the math, if there are 33 hits here, that means there are 41 non-hits. Some of this stuff went pretty low-rent in trying to mine teen hits, with "Bobby, Bobby, Bobby" by Jo Ann Campbell being the nadir. But with "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" Goffin-King upped the maturity quotient considerably. Unfortunately, they hit 100 on the shame meter with the Phil Spector-produced Crystals' single "He Hit Me (And It Felt Like a Kiss)," which had to be quickly withdrawn due to its extreme misogyny and endorsement of violence in a relationship.

Not counting "He Hit Me" (which, as objectionable as it is, does not stray from the format), there are a couple of glitches with the content (and one with the sound: on "The Slide" by Freddie Scott) here. However, with 74 total tracks in play, it's not worth niggling over two of them. Also, I would have preferred less random sequencing, but for such a low-cost package to be this thorough and of such good quality, I'm willing to put up with the odd inconvenience.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Great music - great sound - great value 2 de agosto de 2013
Por Luigi Facotti - Publicado en

This 3 CD set contains 74 tracks, the majority of them from the Goffin/King songbook from performers on a variety of US and UK labels. As might be expected from Not Now Music - there is minimal detail apart from a listing of the original releases and year under the tray for disc 2. The sound, while variable is generally very good with a few obscure tracks. A nice touch is including some UK performers mainly Billy Fury who's take of "Halfway To Paradise" on Disc 1 can be compared with Tony Orlando's version on Disc 2.
This is a fun collection that is well worth owning with the absence of detail in marked contrast to the typically detailed notes on the three Goffin-King CDs on Ace Goffin & King: A Gerry Goffin and Carole King Song Collection 1961-1967 , Something Good: From the Goffin & King Songbook and Honey and Wine: Another Gerry Goffin and Carole King Song Collection and is perhaps a better reflection of the "pop" nature of this music. Highly recommended

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Halfway to Paradise 29 de noviembre de 2013
Por Lee Armstrong - Publicado en

Carole King's music connects with me. This "Songs of" collection is great because of the breadth of recordings here in the 74 tracks. Of course, songs recorded 50 years ago sound dated, because they are. However, many of them still connect. "Halfway to Paradise" by Billy Fury is a great love song, "Put your sweet lips close to my lips and tell me that's where they're going to stay; Don't lead me halfway to Paradise, so near yet so far away." Carole's own recording of "Nobody's Perfect" is a delight with its sentimentality. Likewise, Carole's own 1959 recording of "Under the Stars" reflects a romantic feeling she was to nail in so many hits. Several other of Carole King's own recordings are available here such as the bouncy "School Bells Are Ringing," the delightfully dated "The Right Girl" and the rocking 1958 recording "Going Wild." The Everly Brothers' "How Can I Meet Her?" puts a smile on my face whenever it spins. Bertell Dache's "Not Just Tomorrow But Always" is quite interesting as an early version of what became the mega-hit "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow." King's melody is intact with Goffin's lyric appearing in an early version. Bobby Vee who recorded a number of Carole's songs is well represented on the collection with "My Golden Chance" a more unfamiliar standout here. "The Kid Brother" by Mickey & Kitty is a rare comedy track in the King cannon. The sound quality is excellent. If there were more liner notes about the recordings, it might add to the package; but as it is this early music of Carole King stands on its own merits. Enjoy!

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A fine collection you will not regret to obtain 30 de septiembre de 2013
Por Daniel Grigera - Publicado en

This is a fine collection that includes some CK songs not usually put into similar compilations. There are 74 tracks here, the time scope is from 1958 up to 1962, and they are cleverly arranged throughout this three-disc set. Try it and you will be rewarded by some pearls. Best of all, you'll enjoy the best possible sound. A feast for every Carole King fan.
