LOS ANGELES, CA - In recognition of its historical significance, The Recording Academy has added Carole King's 1971 recording of "You've Got A Friend" to the Grammy Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame was established in 1973 to honor recordings of enduring quality and relevance. Entrants are both single tracks or full-length albums which have been released more than 25 years prior to their eligibility.

LOS ANGELES, CA - Sometimes A Circle, Louise Goffin's solo debut album on Dreamworks Records, was released on February 12, 2002.

Recorded primarily in her home studio in Laurel Canyon with former husband and coproducer Greg Wells, Goffin created a very personal album, creating it totally for themselves. Louise reveals, "The record is about stripping life down to the essentials. It's a humorous look at the absurdity of modern life - the race to accumulate more stuff, more money, and always trying to be perfect."

NEW YORK, NEW YORK - VH1 Classics, the most successful of VH1's new premium channels, began airing Carole King's "Love Makes The World" video the week of February 4, 2002.

VH1 Classics was created to spotlight great music not otherwise available on music outlets skewing ever downward along the age spectrum.
