Revisiting February 1971

Thanks to Sabine  for this link.  Beautiful synchronicity with my previous post.  I hadn't realized that Carole King and Gerry Goffin wrote "Take A Giant Step" in 1966 until I Googled it while writing that post.  I had never heard Carole King singing it.  For me, the most memorable version was the one by Taj Mahal.  The first version I heard was the one by The Monkees.  It turns out that Carole King's first husband and partner in songwriting was born on February 11, 1939 and that "Tapestry" was released on February 10, 1971, two years after their divorce.

".. There'll be good times again for me and you
But we just can't stay together, don't you feel it, too?
Still I'm glad for what we had and how I once loved you ..."
