I am madly in love with iTunes. I was one of those kids who would listen to the Top 40 countdown on Sunday nights with my finger on "record" so I could tape the songs I loved so being able to buy individual songs whenever I want is a dream come true.
So it's sad because I do love it when you find an album you can listen to start to finish. The good news is that there are hundreds and hundreds of classic records to explore that warrant a full listen. One of my all times faves is Carol King's "Tapestry". It was number one for 15 consecutive weeks when it came out and is STILL the longest charting album by a female artist.
She and her husband wrote a whole bunch of songs in the 60's that you would recognize-"The Locomotion", "One Fine Day", 'Pleasant Valley Sunday". She's enormously talented and "Tapestry" is an album I can listen to over and over-it feels like a soundtrack to an adult woman's life which I love.
Here is one of my very favorites from the record-"Will You Love Me Tomorrow?"
