This year is the 40th anniversary of the release of Carole King’s Tapestry and I’ve noticed that quite a few of the tracks have been covered by Jamaican artists. Ok so ‘You’ve Got A Friend’ and ‘Will You Love Me Tomorrow’ weren’t actually first recorded by Carole King (James Taylor and The Shirelles respectively) but I thought it was interesting enough to warrant a post. As well as the versions above both Dennis Brown and Noel ‘Bunny’ Brown have covered ‘It’s Too Late’ and Susan Cadogan covered ‘Will You Love Me Tomorrow’ there are probably more covers out there I’m sure a Jamaican artist must have covered ‘You Make Me Feel (Like A Natural Woman)’ another track on the Tapestry album but I couldn’t think of one.
