Home Again: Carole King Live In Central Park (2023)
Home Again: Carole King Live In Central Park, a new concert documentary directed by George Scott, is a spectacular recreation of King’s landmark 1973 concert on Central Park’s great lawn in front of 100,000 fans. Featuring exclusive interviews and the complete, never-before-seen multi-camera 16mm footage filmed and recorded by producer Lou Adler, it’s a loving tribute to an unforgettable artist.
“We wanted to do something special with Carole in New York,” remembers Adler. “I got in touch with Ron Delsener and told him that Carole was coming home to New York. This was where her upbringing took place and where she got her start in music. New York was everything to her and she wanted to give something back to both her hometown and devoted fans.” King presented her performance on the lawn in two parts — first alone, on piano, and then fronting a powerhouse 11-piece band. In the aftermath of the Central Park performance, Adler took the film and recordings back to Los Angeles where it remained unreleased for 50 years. And now, at last, audiences can experience the joy of seeing Carole King live in Central Park, just like the day it happened.
