Carole King/TAPESTRY: Original mix SACD is wonderful.. SH Forum member Taxman150 sent me the now OUT OF PRINT single layer ORIGINAL MIX version of Carole King's TAPESTRY. I give you my word I had not heard this album from beginning to end since we all wore our copies out in 1971 and it sounded GREAT on my system; warm, musical and dynamic with the great sound of the A&M Studio. So, if you are so inclined and have an SACD player, this is the version to find if you want a nice flat DSD transfer of the ORIGINAL mixes. I think the current SACD out there now is a REMIX of the stereo and a new mix of the 5:1, correct? TAPESTRY was number one on the charts for like 15 weeks or something in 1971; everyone had this album, old and young. Just as we loved James Taylor, Cat Stevens, etc., Carole King grabbed all of us in the same way. I had heard of her of course, seeing her name as songwriter on such great hits as LOCOMOTION/(You Make Me Feel Like A) NATURAL WOMEN/WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME TOMORROW and a zillion other hits. With this album she proved that she could sing as well as write; just one of those albums that you could play all the way through without having to skip songs. At any rate, if you want to hear the ORIGINAL mixes, the ones that won four Grammy awards (Album of the Year, Record Of The Year (It's Too Late), Song Of The Year (You've Got A Friend) and Best Pop Vocal, Female you need to find this single layer SACD: ES 65650/Sony/Ode/Legacy. Marshall Blonstein's cousin LOU ADLER produced it, Hank Cicalo engineered and mixed it at A&M, Vic Anesini mastered it at Sony in 1999. If you love this album, you'll like this version. Quick, find one before they vanish forever! I bet even a "personal use CD-R" made from this in regular digital would sound great! Thanks again to Mike for turning me on to this.
