Written by singer/songwriter extraordinaire, Carol King in collaboration with lyricist Toni Stern, "Where You Lead" is the eighth track from King's legendary 1971 album "Tapestry". The LP held the #1 spot on Billboard's Top 200 Albums for 15 consecutive weeks. Baby boomers will know this song as one of the hit tracks from that iconic album and most younger listeners will likely recognize the tune as the theme song for the television series "Gilmore Girls". The song projects a bouncy, feel good piece of 'happy' that starts off with a very short but effective guitar and electric piano intro which in turn establishes and maintains the integrity of this great composition's spirit, largely in part due to the talents of renowned session musician Danny 'Kootch' Kortchmar along with the very capable and talented virtuoso drum work of Russ Kunkell. With session musicians of this caliber, it's no wonder "Tapestry has long been regarded as Carol King's masterpiece album. Plastic guitar players will love mashing buttons on this one. It ain't speed metal or 'thrash and shred' by any stretch of the imagination but as far as older songs go, it is rather fun and satisfying for the genre.
