There have been numerous compilation albums now of Carpenters and maybe now would have been more appropriate time for Universal to release a better package, say 2 anthology albums covering most of their material, but at least this album does include a few tracks that have been missed out on other compilations, but why it is not in chronological order is a mystery to me, it is a 40 year celebration after all.
I still can't believe 'I can dream can't I' has not been included, one of Karen's best vocals, along with 'You', 'Hideaway', 'Love me for what I am'...well I could go on. 'There's a kind of hush' left off again? When are they going to release deluxe editions of their albums with DVD's like ABBA, that would be great. Nice enough compilation, but we've had them before, please do something different for the next celebration.
