Biography

Between the time she was a Brill Building mainstay and her re-emergence as an early-'70s superstar, Carole King recorded a one-shot album as a member of the City, a trio consisting of King on piano and vocals, Danny Kortchmar on guitar and vocals, and King's future husband Charles Larkey on bass, with Jim Gordon sitting in on drums. The result was 1968's Now That Everything's Been Said. Produced by Lou Adler and featuring songs co-written by King with Gerry Goffin, Toni Stern, or Don Palmer, it remains one of the most interesting, rewarding, and wonderful detours in King's career. The album sank without a trace due to label shenanigans and King's reluctance to perform live and the City disbanded, though Kortchmar and Larkey remained members of her band through her 1971 masterpiece Tapestry and for years afterwards. ~ Bruce Eder
