Tapestry is the debut studio album by American folk singer Don McLean. The album was originally released by Mediarts Records but was re-launched in 1971 by United Artists after United Artists' purchase of Mediarts. The album was also reissued in 1981 on Liberty Records, but without including the song "Three Flights Up". The album was produced by Jerry Corbitt of the Youngbloods. All tracks written by Don McLean. Don McLean – vocals, guitar, banjo. Rick Turner – guitar, bass guitar.
It took the success of Don McLean's second album, American Pie, to stimulate interest in his debut record, Tapestry. But once the new fans looked, they found that the album contained the same high level of pop-folk songwriting, if in a somewhat less epic form. Castles in the Air" became a hit, and the album also contained McLean's version of his song "And I Love You So," which Perry Como successfully covered in 1973.

Don McLean is one of the greatest singer-songwriters with such songs as "American Pie", "Vincent (Starry Starry Night)", "Castles in the Air", "And I Love You So", "Crossroads", "The Grave" and many more. Preceding a 32-date UK and Ireland tour, ‘Botanical Gardens’, Don’s 19th studio album and first in 8 years, is arguably one of his most reflective to date. As he puts it, The inspiration for the project started years ago when I would walk in the beautiful gardens in Sydney Australia near the Opera House. I would dream young dreams and it was a comfort and an inspiration. I was always young inside, like we all are, and I felt it again there. Further reflecting on the record, Don says, the whole album really revolves around the title song.

Every thread of creation is held in position by still other strands of things living. In an earthly tapestry hung from the skyline of smouldering cities so gray and so vulgar, as not to be satisfied with their own negativity but needing to touch all the living as well. Every breeze that blows kindly is one crystal breath we exhale on the blue diamond heaven. As gentle to touch as the hands of the healer.
