Smackwater Jack - Carole King (1971)
Carole King writes an old west ballad for her biggest selling album, relegating it to its position as one of the best deep cuts off of the seminal singer/songwriter record. King had a run of albums in the early seventies that all need to be heard, but we all know Tapestry would stand out of anyone's discography. Get ready for the shootin' boys!
Carole has always been covered, even before she ever released an album. Here are two fine versions of today's jam.
