Even in the unlikely event that you don't know her singing, you sure as heck know her songs. From penning hits for others, perhaps most famously Aretha Franklin ('You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman'), to becoming a best-selling singer in her own right, to even being covered by Lisa Simpson ('Jazzman'!), Carole King has left a widely felt impression on the music and pop culture landscape.
Her memoir, A Natural Woman, is available today. Carole King, born Carole Klein, enjoyed very early success, co-writing her first No. 1 hit at age 18 (1961) -- the Shirelles' "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow." King, in the book, chronicles her beginnings and her 50-plus years in the music business. The nearly 500-page hardcover is priced at $27.99, though many outlets (such as Amazon, Walmart, Target etc.), appear to be offering it for less than $20. The Kindle edition is $14.99.
