There were a number of other songs to like here. “Brother Brother” and “Carry The Load” both have some social bite, and the first has an R&B flavor. “It’s Going To Take Some Time” was a lush hit with strings by the Carpenters, but I have always preferred her simple and sparse rendition. Likewise, “Some Kind Of Wonderful” was a huge hit for The Drifters during 1961, but here she turns this old Goffin/King composition into a beautiful and soulful love song. “Surely” is the album's longest track, which gave her the time to develop and tell a story.
Music is many times over shadowed and underappreciated but it remains a minor classic. If you have only been exposed to Carole King through the music of Tapestry or one of her compilation albums, then Music is a good place to begin to know her a little better.
