Easy Listening CD Featuring The Evergreen Carpenters Karen & Richard. The 14 Track CD comprises Tracks with previously unreleased recordings including The Haunting Nowhere Man first Heard on The Terry Wogan show. The CD aptly Titled As Time Goes By Thanks To Richard Carpenter finds Tracks from The vaults of unreleased material. The album features legendary crooner Perry Como as The Duo preform a melody of His Greatest Hits likewise Como Gives us a melody of Karen & Richards Hits in is own unique style. At The Time Karen & Richard featured a lot on The Perry Como show and The Tracks would most possible have been lifted from These shows. The Album as a classic musical feel To it as classic songs I Got Rhythm & Your Just In Love are Given The Carpenters Treatment as only Karen can Deliver. And Karen's rendition of The Rainbow Connection one of The best Tracks on The Album will bring a Tear To The eye. Richard is not overlooked as he gives us His own Treatment To The Star Wars & Close Encounters Themes while These may seem a little out of place with The rest of The Album They Do offer a fresh style To These classic Themes. The Final Tracks feature Karen & Richard Treating us To a melody of some of Their best loved songs and your favourite Carpenters song will be amongst Them. The CD cover and inlay card feature some nice photos of Karen & Richard and I simply can't recommend This CD Album enough . Karen may no longer be with us But Richard's release of This Album will ensure The Magic of The Carpenters and The voice of Karen Carpenter will live on for future Generations To enjoy.

A very nice disc with some very odd recordings with the fantastic Carpenters!

Worth buying for a couple of tracks not available on any other CD plus the full version of Without a song that was edited for Interpretations a few years ago. Not keen on the Perry Como or Ella Fitgerald medleys but that is because those two are not my choice of singer. Highlight is definitely The Rainbow Connection.

A Carpenters' recording is rarely faulted. Another one for my collection. Simply superb.

Karen Carpenter was brilliant and it is so sad that she died so early.

Apart from the tracks which showcase Richard's keyboard skills, this is a classical Carpenters album. Some tracks are culled from TV appearances, rather than being produced in the studio, and so the final mix is as it would have been heard during the TV transmissions. Still an album to treasure for any loyal Carpenters fan.

A lovely selection with some tracks that I have not heard before. Easy listening and deserves to be listened to over and over.

To Carpenters fans , a clever mixture of unreleased tracks plus an imaginative demonstration of multi-tracking with the voices of other stars. Well worthwhile.

As always, Karens' voice is wonderfully warm and immaculate. The album content disappointed slightly at first but as a lifelong fan, I'm sure it will grow on me.
