Rockingale Records Releases Carole King's 'Welcome To My Living Room' DVD
Set Features Nearly Thirty Performances from King's sold-Out Living Room Tour, Including Twenty-One Top Forty Hits, Seven #1 Singles, and Eleven Songs Not Available on Her Best-Selling 2005 Live CD Bonus Footage Offers Unprecedented Access to One of the Greatest Songwriters in History
Singing/songwriting icon and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Carole King released a new live DVD, 'Welcome To My Living Room,' October 23rd on her own Rockingale Records label. Filmed in Southern California in 2005, 'Welcome' offers an intimate, unadorned glimpse into the "living room" of one of the greatest songwriters in history. The set features twenty-nine songs - nearly two hours of music in all - from King's sold-out 2005/06 Living Room World Tour, including an astonishing twenty-one Top 40 hits, seven #1 singles, and eleven songs that weren’t on her best-selling 2005 'Living Room Tour' live CD.
'Welcome' also boasts extensive bonus features. Fans will get an unprecedented look into King’s pre-tour rehearsals as she works out harmonies and arrangements for some of her biggest hits. The DVD also includes footage from the fan-favorite "Songwriting 101" portion of King's show. Every night, King and bandmates Gary Burr (guitar/vocals) and Rudy Guess (guitar/backing vocals) composed and performed an impromptu new song from the stage, completely unrehearsed. This DVD is the only document of those one-time-only performances, and it also features an interview with King discussing the inspiration for and execution of "Songwriting 101." Then there's the "Making of the Living Room Tour" featurette which includes additional interviews with King about how the tour was conceived and crafted, and some of her favorite memories from the road.
King's Living Room Tour was adored by fans and critics alike. When she played Radio City Music Hall on the tour in July '05, The NY Daily News proclaimed "King sounds as strong - and looks as good - as she did decades ago," and The Newark Star Ledger asserted that witnessing King perform was like "watching Picasso paint." And when she played Denver, The Rocky Mountain News raved "With just her piano and voice much of the time – and just two backing musicians at others – King put on a show that was a tour de force of everything good about her work. Charming and chatty, at times it felt like a rock-history class with the world's hippest professor, as she detailed how her songs came about...All in all, the show was everything a great show should be."
The DVD was mixed in stereo and 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound. It features interactive menus and instant chapter access to songs.
