The Living Room Tour is a live album by American singer-songwriter Carole King, originally released in July 2005 by Rockingale Records and Hear Music.

Carole King is the most successful female songwriter of the 20th century, having written or co-written 118 pop hits on the Billboard Hot 100 between 1955 and 1999. She also wrote 61 hits that charted in the UK, making her the most successful female songwriter on the UK singles charts between 1952 and 2005. Carole King has won four Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for her songwriting. She is the recipient of the 2013 Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, the first woman to be honored this way.

 

Carole King has co-written more great songs than almost anyone. On her Living Room Tour of 2004 she ran through some of her favorites, old and new, in a very intimate manner with just her piano or acoustic guitar for accompaniment. (She was also joined by guitarists Rudy Guess and Gary Burr on acoustic guitar and occasional bass and vocals, as well as daughters Sherry and Louise on vocals.)

The set documents some highlights from various shows and works well as a career retrospective as it touches on both the songs she wrote for others and those she performed herself.

There are plenty of songs from Tapestry and her early-'70s albums (including the reworked "Where You Lead I Will Follow", which features her daughter Louise Goffin on vocals), songs from soundtracks ("Lay Down My Life" from the little-seen After Dark, My Sweet, "Now And Forever" from A League Of Their Own), and a couple of new compositions ("Welcome To My Living Room" and "Loving You Forever").

King was always an idiosyncratic vocalist and she sounds a little ragged around the edges here, more gritty and lived-in than you might remember but certainly not worn out. In fact, the grit adds some emotion and strength to her voice. It definitely adds a new dimension to the versions of songs she and Gerry Goffin wrote way back in the early and mid-'60s.

King sounds like she is having a blast and the audience responds in kind. The medley she does of classic Goffin/King penned tracks is great fun and highly educational - amazing might be a better word. Knowing that those songs only touch the tip of the iceberg of their tunes is mind-blowing.

Fans of Carole King will be as happy as the audiences at the shows (to own this charming collection.

Check out the tracks: “I Feel The Earth Move”; “It’s Too Late”; "Where You Lead I Will Follow" ; "(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman" and “You've Got A Friend”. 

This album is now available on vinyl for the very first time!

This double album 2LP record set is a Music On Vinyl reissue (February 2017) on 180 gram audiophile vinyl featuring remastered audio and an 8 page booklet, pressed in Europe.
