The first album by a female singer/songwriter to win three Grammys at once, “Tapestry” changed the face of American pop music, and became the best-selling album of all time, a position it held for many years, beating out the Beatles and Elvis. “Tapestry” sold 25 million copies worldwide, won four Grammy Awards including Album of the Year and is ranked 36th on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
