Previously unseen 1973 Carole King concert at the Montreux Jazz Festival being released as a DVD/CD set in June

A previously unseen concert film capturing Carole King performing at Switzerland's Montreux Jazz Festival in 1973 will be released as a DVD/CD set on June 14, while audio-only versions will be available the same day on CD and vinyl LP.

Live at Montreux 1973 documents the lauded singer/songwriter's first concert ever outside of the U.S. The show begins with a short solo set featuring King accompanying herself on piano that's made up mainly of songs from her smash 1971 album Tapestry. Carole is then joined by an 11-piece band -- including jazz saxophonist and flutist Tom Scott -- with whom she plays most of her then-latest album, 1973's Fantasy.  King closes the show with solo versions of two more of her classic compositions -- "You've Got a Friend" and "(You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman."

You can check two preview performances from the film -- King playing her hit "It's Too Late" solo and a full band rendition of the Fantasy track "You've Been Around Too Long" -- at Eagle Rock's official YouTube channel. All physical versions of Live at Montreux 1973 can be pre-ordered now via Eagle-Rock.com.

Here's the full track list of the CD and DVD:

"I Feel the Earth Move"
