About the film:
On Saturday May 26th, 1973 before 100,000 plus fans on the Great Lawn of Central Park in New York City, Carole King, a generational talent singer-songwriter at the undeniable top of her game, enjoyed a humbling homecoming. This brand new feature-length concert documentary presents the historic event using the complete multi-camera 16mm footage filmed and recorded by producer Lou Adler in 1973 but never before released.
Alongside the complete performance footage is the behind the scenes story of King’s remarkable transformation from an in demand, staff songwriter beloved for such timeless Goffin and King classics as “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” and “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” to an iconic artist in her own right. The May 1973 performance captured King at her critical and commercial peak, basking in the enormous popularity of her definitive album Tapestry.
