Picks and Pans Review: Tapestry Revisited: a Tribute to Carole King
How do you bring something fresh to a bona fide classic? A diverse group of '90s acts wrestle with that problem with mixed results as they pay tribute to Carole King's 1971 megaseller (more than 20 million copies to date), Tapestry. The 12 songs include inspired reworkings, like the R&B trio Eternal's "I Feel the Earth Move"—which boasts a hip-hop groove and a shoutin' gospel kicker—Curtis Stigers' soulful "Home Again" and All-4-One's "Tapestry," caressed with their silky harmonies. But Amy Grant's bland take on "It's Too Late," and the Bee Gees' breathy "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," will send you scrambling back to King's masterpiece. (Lava/Atlantic)
