Touch The Sky by Carole King was released in 1979. The country-tinged sound is much earthier than Simple Things and Welcome Home. Carole King is more contemplative in voice and melancholic, no doubt due to the death of her third husband, Rick Evers, earlier in the year. The personal loss is best felt in the song "Dreamlike I Wander".Read More

With its blend of folk, pop, and Yacht Rock it is a great introduction to Carole King's discography. It was originally released in 1979 and co-produced by Mark Hallman. The album features a more country-tinged sound than Simple Things and Welcome Home and King's voice is more contemplative and melancholic.
