Format: Audio CD
Richard Carpenter didn't have much time to write new songs for this album, so he only contributed three of his own songs (Saturday, Drusilla Penny, One love), but all of them are excellent. For the other tracks, Richard was able to identify some brilliant songs from outside sources and the end result was one of the strongest albums that the Carpenters ever recorded.

The album features Superstar (which they recorded after hearing Bette Midler sing it). For all we know (from the movie Lovers and other strangers) and Rainy days and Mondays. There's also a medley of six Bacharach-Davis songs, though I don't know why they chose to include I'll never fall in love again, since they recorded a full-length version on their previous album, but that's a minor quibble. Hideaway (written by Randy Sparks, best known as the founder of the New Christy Minstrels), Let me be the one and Sometimes are other wonderful songs.

This album is a masterpiece by the Carpenters, and makes a good starting point for anybody wishing to explore their music beyond the hits.

read one review that claimed The Carpenters were running out of material to mine by the time they approached their third album. This is just nonsense. Once again an album of superlative songs. Today we have an ever expanding conveyor belt of female singers torturing us with their strangled vocals that masquerade as soulful.

Karen Carpenter had one of the most soulful voices of all time without ever attempting to be anything other than a superlative vocalist. Quite frankly she could sing the telephone directory and make it interesting. Rainy Days and Mondays is the kind of song that we can all relate to and once again showed how comfortably Karen and Richard could dovetail in with the work of Roger Nicholls and Paul Williams.

Other songs on this album such as For All We Know and, Superstar (the latter which brought Leon Russell into the picture) are top notch Carpenters efforts. Amongst the original material One Love is outstanding and the duo also link in an excellent Bacharach/David medley that helps to give rather than take away identity. It is here that Richard Carpenter's arrangements come to the fore to give a fresh sound to some very well known songs. The album concludes with one of my favourite songs of all times - Henry Mancini's Sometimes where the lyrics say it all - Just look them up on the internet and luxuriate in some of the most inspiring words ever put to music.

I don't think I could ever have called myself a Carpenters fan but their music has always been with me and it was truly astounding to see how much of it is still available , much of it (as this is) remastered. What I had forgotten was how polished their performances were and what a gob-smackingly beautiful voice Karen had . What a shame she's no longer with us.
This is one of their earlier offerings and features the Bacherach and David medley ( chunks of which turn up , slightly re-arranged on other albums)which I have a feeling may have been part of their Cabaret set from their travelling days. Other favourites are present. Rainy Days and Mondays , For All we Know , One Love and the hauntingly beautiful, Sometimes.It has been re-mastered nicely although that hasn't been over-kind to the Bacherach and David with at least one edit showing up in sharp relief ! Whatever , at this price its a steal.Interesting to see how short the tracks are compared to modern offerings.

Bought this album and Close to you together, after seeing a Carpenters concert on the TV. If anything it was even better than I expected. All the songs where Karen is on lead are great, particularly Rainy Days and Mondays, Superstar, and let me be the one. A place to hideaway and For all we know also really showcase Karen's fantastic voice. And sometimes is a great way for the album to end, just with the piano and Karen singing, no instruments. The only down side to the album though, are the two songs where Richard are lead, Saturday, and Druscilla Penny. Much as I admire Richard as a musician, these songs provide too much of a contrast with Karen's superb voice. Nevertheless, this is one of my favourite albums, and I play it regularly.

This album is a brill album but the sound quality on this version is quite bad because it is un-remastered. Particularly in track 9, there is an audiable tape-hiss type noise. The better version is the one with a peach cover and the Carpenters logo in brown in the centre. But nontheless a brilliant album.

Its holds the forever memorable 'Rainy Days & Mondays', 'For All We Know' and 'Superstar' but also other gslightly less well known tracks such as Let Me Be The One, (a place to) hideaway' and 'Druscilla Penny'
