Showcasing such trad virtues as live musicianship, brick-solid song stuctures and stylistic breadth, this is one sweet set. Reprising Brill Building gems King penned with ex-husband Gerry Goffin — a stately "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" particularly dazzles — and the '70s fare that made her the definitive singer/songwriter ("You've Got a Friend," "Natural Woman," "It's Too Late"), she flashes the pop smarts that made Tapestry (1971) the biggest-selling album in history at one time. King prefigured such figures as Tori Amos and Sarah McLachlan, and with the ubiquitous Slash guest starring, In Concert shows that her best remains vital — earnest, intelligent music whose formal elegance consistently satisfies.
