There is some confusion over whether this song was a #1 hit. The facts are that given its upbeat nature, King's record label selected "Earth Move" as the A-side to Tapestry
's first single. However, after a few weeks of continuous airplay many DJs began to give the slower, lamenting B-side "It's Too Late
," an equal amount of spin. Soon, it came to the point where "It's Too Late," dominated and ended up topping the charts by May of 1971. Billboard has since declared the record a double A-side and it is generally listed as such in books and articles that both songs reached #1 on the Hot 100 chart.
