6Tapestry - Carole King

I'll be hated for adding this amazing woman but "Tapestry" makes 95% of her fame and impact. 5% - the rest! - Alexandr

Completely not true; She also had TWO other #1 albums- "Music" and "Wrap Around Joy", plus a #2- "Rhymes and Reasons", and also a #3- "Thoroughbred".

Don't hate me for adding Sinead. I do love all of her albums but this one outshone them all! - Alexandr

One of the best Indi-rock albums ever! I wish all of her albums were like this one - Alexandr
