Ode, 1971

The Brooklyn piano woman who co-wrote "You've Got a Friend" and "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?" reaches the Seventies with her marriage broken but her soul intact, singing some of the most painful divorce songs ever.

Essential moment: "So Far Away," a wistful melody with all the loneliness of the album cover.
