Happy Birthday to Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Carole King, who turns 79 today (February 9th)! Most fans associate King with her own hits, such as 1971's “It's Too Late,” “I Feel The Earth Move,” and “So Far Away,” plus 1974's “Jazzman,” but in the 1960's King was responsible for co-writing with her then-husband Gerry Goffin some of the biggest hits to come out of that decade.
Elvis Costello's 2018 album, Look Now, featured “Burnt Sugar Is So Bitter” — a long-unreleased song co-written with King. Look Now snagged Costello & The Imposters the Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Album.
2019 saw the release of Carole King – Live At Montreux 1973. The show, which had never before been released, features King performing her first-ever overseas concert at the world-famous Montreux Jazz Festival, while on the road in support of her then-recent Fantasy album.
