Who was/is Carole King ? - CDs, Vinyl LPs, DVD and more
Gerry Coffin and Carole King (then his wife) were the most versatile and successful songwriting team in America during the early Sixties. Goffin was chiefly a lyricist : his flair and directness is illustrated on everything from their first big hit `Will You Love Me Tomorrow' by the Shirelles, to songs such as `Goin' Back', written shortly before the team split.
Most of their success was under the Nevins-Kirschner Colgems umbrella, where they worked at the Brill Building 1819 Broadway, NY 10022) together with several other contemporary writers. After their divorce, Goffin's career wavered. A couple of unsuccessful solo albums and only the odd hit (such as Gladys Knight's 'Imagination', penned with Barry Goldberg) indicated that his vast talent remained.
