timeless classic from The Carpenters
on 16 February 2003
20 years after the untimely death of Karen Carpenter this cd is just like going back to those days with Karen and Richard showing us just how good the music was and it still sounds great.
The cd is a collection of unpublished material, some from their TV shows and includes such songs as California Dreamin' (you probably remember the Mamas and Papas version)and Nowhere Man (a gem!). The collection is so wonderful showing you don't need to belt music out at 100 decibels and to which you could listen to for hours. The Close Encounters/Star Wars medley was a surprise but a nice surprise. Although the cd lists 14 tracks, as Richard explains there is a fifteenth track on the cd.
Any criticisms, just one, it just makes you want to listen to more material. What a pleasure we had having the Carpenters around, with thanks to Richard for putting together the collection.
Definitely a cd to buy!.
