Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Carole King released her "Live at Montreux 1973" album on June 14 via Eagle Vision, which features previously unreleased live performances.
This was King's first performance outside America and it was recorded at the world-famous Montreux Jazz Festival. There is a rawness and authenticity to it, and the camera captures King's intricate piano work and resonant vocals.
Her band on this project included such gifted musicians as Bobbye Hall on percussion, George Bohanon on the horn, as well as Tom Scott on flute and saxophone.
It opens with "I Feel The Earth Move" and it is followed by "Smackwater Jack" and "Home Again." After the classic "Beautiful," it immediately breaks into such noteworthy standards as "Up On The Roof" and "It's Too Late."
Live at Montreux 1973 closes with "You've Got A Friend," and on a powerhouse note with "(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman," where she leaves her audience yearning for more.
It is available on Amazon and through King's website.
