I just read this on Facebook:

On this day in 1971, Carole King’s TAPESTRY was released, becoming the longest charting record by a female solo artist in Billboard History. I listened to my Tapestry cassette relentlessly. So Far Away, I Feel The Earth Move, Tapestry, You Got a Friend, It’s Too Late Baby, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow… It was just loaded with greatness. What was your favorite track?”

In the very early days of Power Surge on AOL, I found out somehow that this album was one of Alice’s very favorite records (yes, this was a long time ago!)

I was wanting very badly to impress Alice, to be her friend, so I went to the music store and bought the piano version so Alice could play this and sing along.

The one person I knew who had Alice’s address wouldn’t share it with me for privacy reasons.  I finally had to send it to HER and she sent it on to Alice.

She loved it, as I knew she would.

We would often reference music from this record in our later phone conversations.  I have a copy on my computer (upgraded to mp3!) and would sometimes play selections over the phone.

I miss you today, as always, Alice.
