Album Review

Featuring a surprisingly poignant cover photo of a suburban house — not unlike the Downey, CA homestead in which Karen and Richard Carpenter grew up — Now & Then is a concept album about the music that inspired Karen and Richard in their childhood.

Also included are Shelley Fabares' "Johnny Angel," Bobby Vee's "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes," Ruby & the Romantics' "Our Day Will Come," and the Chiffons' "One Fine Day." Given Karen's immense skills as an interpretive singer, not one of the covers is less than interesting, and most are flat-out wonderful., Rovi
