CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

We used to play that one back in the early '70s, and, er, you know, when I first learned

0:03:040:03:09

that we were going to be doing this, I started to listen to it

0:03:090:03:13

and tried to see if I could remember it.

0:03:130:03:15

And my brain didn't, my fingers did and my heart definitely did.

# So far away

0:03:330:03:38

# Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore?

0:03:380:03:44

# It would be so fine to see your face at my door

0:03:440:03:51

# It doesn't help to know

0:03:510:03:54

# You're just time away

0:03:540:03:58

# Long ago I reached for you

0:03:580:04:02

# And there you stood

0:04:020:04:06

# Holding you again could only do me good

0:04:060:04:11

# How I wish I could

0:04:130:04:15

# But you're so far away

0:04:150:04:20

# One more song about movin' along the highway

0:04:230:04:28

# Can't say much of anything that's new

0:04:300:04:35

# If I could only work this life out my way

0:04:370:04:43

# I'd rather spend it bein' close to you

0:04:440:04:51

0:05:200:05:25

# Travellin' around sure gets me down and lonely

0:05:280:05:34

# Nothin' else to do but close my mind

0:05:350:05:41

# I sure hope the road don't come to own me

0:05:420:05:49

# There's so many dreams

0:05:500:05:53

# I've yet to find

0:05:530:05:56

This is a tune that I wrote in 1967 and it's the song that got me a...

0:17:510:17:56

record deal with Apple Records. I... I played it for...

0:17:560:18:01

for Peter Asher, who is right up there.

0:18:010:18:03

CHEERING

0:18:030:18:06

I played for Peter Asher and he, er, played it for Paul McCartney

0:18:060:18:12

and George Harrison, who signed me to Apple Records.

0:18:120:18:17

The first person to sign.

0:18:170:18:19

It was my big break.

0:18:190:18:21

It was a huge moment for me. It was as if somebody had opened a door

0:18:210:18:25

and the rest of my life were on the other side of it.

0:18:250:18:28

Which happens often, actually, but usually in a negative way.

0:18:280:18:31

LAUGHTER

0:18:310:18:32

You open the door and it's Hell on the other side.

0:18:320:18:35

Anyway, this is a song that, er...

0:18:350:18:40

got me signed.

PLAYS INTRO, APPLAUSE

0:18:410:18:45

# There's something in the way she moves

0:18:540:18:57

# Or looks my way, or calls my name... #

0:18:570:19:01

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:19:010:19:03

# That seems to leave this troubled world behind

0:19:030:19:07

# If I'm feeling down and blue

0:19:100:19:13

# Or troubled by some foolish game

0:19:140:19:18

# She always seems to make me change my mind

0:19:200:19:25

# I feel fine anytime she's around me now

0:19:260:19:32

# She's around me now

0:19:320:19:36

# Almost all the time

0:19:370:19:39

# If I'm well you can tell that she's been with me now

0:19:400:19:46

# She's been with me now

0:19:470:19:50

# Quite a long, long time And I feel fine

0:19:500:19:55

# Every now and then the things I lean on lose their meaning

0:20:020:20:08

# And I find myself careening

0:20:080:20:11

# Into places where I should not let me go, no

0:20:110:20:17

# She has the power to go where no one else can find me

0:20:190:20:25

# And to silently remind me

0:20:250:20:28

# Of the happiness and good times that I know, you know

0:20:280:20:35

# Well I said I just got to know that

0:20:350:20:39

# It isn't what she's got to say

0:20:390:20:44

# Or how she thinks or where she's been

0:20:440:20:47

# To me, the words are nice, the way they sound

0:20:490:20:54

# I like to hear them best that way

0:20:570:21:00

# It doesn't much matter what they mean

0:21:010:21:04

# She says them mostly just to calm me down

0:21:070:21:11

# I feel fine anytime she's around me now

0:21:130:21:19

# She's around me now

0:21:200:21:23

# I guess just about all the time

0:21:230:21:27

# And if I'm well you can tell that she's been with me now

0:21:270:21:33

# She's been with me now

0:21:340:21:38

# Quite a long, quite a long long time

0:21:380:21:43

# Yes, and I feel fine. #

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:21:540:21:56

Um, this next song was actually, um, sort of my beginning.

0:22:170:22:21

I started writing with and was married to at the time, Gerry Goffin.

0:22:210:22:26

And, er... APPLAUSE GROWS

0:22:260:22:29

Please. APPLAUSE CONTINUES

0:22:290:22:30

He wrote so many of the lyrics to so many of your favourite songs.

0:22:300:22:34

I guess the ones that he and I didn't write, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil wrote!

0:22:340:22:39

But, um, anyway, this was written at a time when

0:22:390:22:43

we had a young child and I think another one on the way

0:22:430:22:46

and, um, we were kinda struggling along, Gerry had a day job as a chemist.

0:22:460:22:51

LAUGHS And, er...

0:22:510:22:54

which lead to other things!

0:22:540:22:56

LAUGHTER

0:22:560:22:58

WHOOPS FROM AUDIENCE

0:22:580:22:59

We were writing and we got this song recorded by The Shirelles.

0:22:590:23:04

And don't you know that this was the one that allowed him to quit his day job, which I'm still not sure

0:23:040:23:08

was a good thing! LAUGHTER

0:23:080:23:10

At any rate, this was our first hit and we hope you enjoy it.

# Unspoken

0:25:110:25:15

# You say that I'm the only one

0:25:180:25:27

# But will my heart

0:25:300:25:34

# Be broken?

0:25:350:25:40

-AUDIENCE CHEERS

-The first time I...

0:31:470:31:49

Russell Kunkel is a renowned and legendary, em, drummer,

0:31:510:31:56

a man with that rare ability to hit things and make music

0:31:560:31:59

and people weren't using brushes in rock and roll songs the way he did on this song

0:31:590:32:05

and it really...it really increased the song in the studio when Peter and I first recorded it.

# Put an end to you

0:32:400:32:42

# I walked out this morning

0:32:440:32:47

# And I wrote down this song

0:32:470:32:50

# I just can't remember who to send it to

0:32:530:32:57

# I've seen fire and I've seen rain

0:33:000:33:04

# I've seen sunny days and I thought they'd never end

0:33:060:33:11

# I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend

0:33:140:33:19

# But I always thought I'd see you again

0:33:220:33:26

# Won't you look down on me, Jesus

0:33:330:33:36

# You've got to help me to make a stand

0:33:360:33:40

# You've just got to see me through another day

0:33:430:33:47

# My body's aching

0:33:490:33:51

# And my time is at hand

0:33:510:33:55

# And I won't make it any other way

0:33:580:34:02

0:37:060:37:08

Well, you know, it's time for another song.

0:37:100:37:13

LAUGHTER

0:37:130:37:15

That tune, I wrote it behind the wheel of an automobile.

0:37:150:37:19

The first time... The first verse was written driving down to North Carolina.

0:37:190:37:24

I was going down to see my...

0:37:240:37:26

I'd been... I'd been abroad for a year.

0:37:260:37:29

I'd... Well, I'd been overseas.

0:37:290:37:32

LAUGHTER

0:37:320:37:37

Been over in London for a year and I came home and I wanted to see my family

0:37:380:37:42

cos I wanted to catch up.

0:37:420:37:44

You know, you stay away from your family and you forget what they're really like

0:37:440:37:48

and you go visit them.

0:37:480:37:50

So, uh, anyway, my brother Alex and his wife Brenda had a kid in the time that I'd been away.

0:37:500:37:56

Just take your eye off them for a second...

0:37:560:38:00

They defied.

0:38:020:38:03

Anyway...my brother Alex named this child,

0:38:030:38:08

in a moment of weakness, he named it after me - little baby James -

0:38:080:38:11

and I was driving to see this kid, this little varmint, for the first time.

0:38:110:38:15

Yeah, it's touching... if you like children!

0:38:150:38:18

LAUGHTER

0:38:180:38:20

So, uh, I was driving down to see little baby James

0:38:220:38:25

and I was trying to figure out what kind of song would be a good song to sing to him.

0:38:250:38:29

It had to be a cowboy lullaby, you know.

0:38:290:38:32

Go to sleep, you little buckaroo.

0:38:320:38:35

LAUGHTER

0:38:350:38:37

Lights out in the bunkhouse.

0:38:370:38:38

# And glasses of beer

0:39:320:39:35

# Closing his eyes as the doggies retire

0:39:370:39:42

# He sings out a song which is soft but it's clear

0:40:490:40:55

# There's a song that they sing when they take to the highway

0:40:590:41:05

# A song that they sing when they take to the sea

0:41:050:41:11

# A song that they sing of their home in the sky

0:41:110:41:17

# Maybe you can believe it if it helps you to sleep

0:41:170:41:23

# Just that singing seemed to work fine for me

0:41:230:41:28

A pure Carole King tune.

0:46:000:46:02

I heard it for the first time standing right there where that green and red Christmas-y light is.

0:46:020:46:08

Um, I used to stand out here.

0:46:080:46:10

I can't remember anything for one year either side...

0:46:100:46:13

-LAUGHTER

-..of hearing this song,

0:46:130:46:15

but I remember standing there and hearing Carole play this song.

0:46:150:46:19

It was, uh... I worked it up on the guitar and got a version of it and...

0:46:190:46:26

In an amazing act of generosity,

0:46:260:46:31

just plain nothing but generosity, kindness,

0:46:310:46:34

she let me cut this tune first, release it first

0:46:340:46:38

and I was amazed because she was cutting Tapestry at the time...

0:46:380:46:42

CHEERING

0:46:420:46:44

..and that she would...

0:46:440:46:46

You know, just that she would let go, what I thought was maybe the best pop tune ever written.

0:46:460:46:53

I was just amazed.

0:46:530:46:54

I didn't realise at the time, I'd be singing that song every single night for the rest of my life.

0:46:560:47:02

LAUGHTER

0:47:020:47:04

But it's a great song to be known for

0:47:040:47:07

and I've travelled around the world on this tune.

So I thank Carole for it often when she's not around

Carole King and James Taylor reunited at the intimate Hollywood venue in concert in 2007 to play their era-defining hits, nearly four decades after they first performed at the Troubadour in November 1970, a year before their Tapestry and Sweet Baby James' albums stormed the American charts. King and Taylor are backed by the Section, the same band that propelled those albums into homes around the world.

James Taylor had released his first album on the Beatles' Apple label, Carole King was struggling to forge a new solo career after being one half of Goffin-King, one of the great Brill Building songwriting partnerships of the early 60s. Their musical friendship blossomed with Taylor's support for King and his cover of her song You've Got a Friend. The Troubadour became the centre of a new singer-songwriter culture that also featured the likes of Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt and many more.
