The soundtrack to a television special originating from the pen of author Maurice Sendak, Really Rosie is that rare children's album with the wit and intelligence to capture the imaginations of adult listeners as well. Sendak's sharp, clever lyrics tell the story of young Brooklynite Rosie and a cast of vividly etched supporting characters including the apathetic Pierre and a boy named Chicken Soup; Carole King's melodies serve the material remarkably well, transforming even the most deliberately silly songs into catchy, piano-driven pop confections. In fact, it's in many ways her most fully realized record since Tapestry, with a sparkling charm and heartfelt sincerity that interim releases lacked.

Carole King - Thoroughbred (1976) [Re-up]  Music

1976's Thoroughbred was Carole King's last album for Lou Adler's Ode Records imprint, and it's clearly a transitional release. Change was afoot in the musical air in 1976, and while there's no hints of punk or disco on Thoroughbred–which is a good thing–King is definitely moving away from the solo piano sound of her earlier solo albums. King's thumping, percussive piano playing is still all over the album, but guitars play a more prominent role than ever before. At times, the instrumental interplay resembles that of Fleetwood Mac, particularly Waddy Wachtel's Lindsey Buckingham-like solo on "Only Love Is Real." The songs themselves are in the eclectic style of 1973's all-over-the-map FANTASY, with the country-tinged "We All Have To Be Alone" and "Ambrosia" sitting comfortably between the slinky pop of "I'd Like To Know You Better" and the soulful "Still Here Thinking of You." The album charted at US #3.

Label: Summit Records | Tracks: 12 | Rls.date: 2017

This collection of hit songs from the middle of the 20th Century is sure to tickle the nostalgic fancy of baby boomers. However, the jazz-infused arrangements and virtuosic instrumental solos will appeal to jazz and popular song fans of all ages. Even as more jazz musicians are stretching the meaning of The Great American Songbook, to take hit ballads by one-name rockers like Sting, and Clapton and iconic bands like The Beatles, The Eagles and Steppenwolf and make them your own in a contemporary jazz context is not an easy feat.

"…I tend to agree that there are several cuts where the mids were a bit loud but maybe MFSL was just being faithful to the original master tape. But this sacd version is clearly superior to the 1996 cd version. To sum up, my purchase of this version is really justified." ~sa-cd.net

Over 2 discs it has many of the favourite carols, plus a great selection of lesser-known pieces, all sung pitch-perfectly in a very gentle C of E style, with no drama, theatricals or show-boating. As such it is background music to potter around to, or eat Christmas dinner to, rather than music to actively listen to.
