Two talented people.

Nothing is more disgusting than someone commenting that Richards trying to make money off his sisters talent. What does your calendar say honey? Because I’ll tell you what Richards says busy, booked, employed. Beautifully done executes HIS and KARENS beautiful talents once again. It’s ok when the Beatles re release albums but when Richard does it its a attempt at capital gain? Don’t think so. Using your voice to say such disgusting and cruel and untrue words about someone’s late sister and bandmate? Can’t relate. Should be ashamed to make such projections. A wonderful band consisting of two very talented people Karen’s voice and drums, Richards composing, playing, and mastery at song production. As always fantastic and legendary. I’m only 22 and I can tell you there ain’t anyone in todays modern music that could pull anything close to a Karen and Richard. 💕

First 3 songs...

I have always loved the Carpenters music. I have all their regular albums and several of their compilation albums. I'm trying my best to hear something new in the instrumentals but I don't hear anything that would make me want to purchase this collection. Over the years they have released updated versions of their songs on the compilation albums. This one just doesn't scream "BUY ME...I have something new to offer.". I agree with other comments, it would be nice to have new music from Richard...or music they recorded but didn't use on any of their albums.

70s Reprise - Still classics

Karen Carpenter's angelic voice, Richard Carpenter's arrangements, backed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Greatness revisited with a light, orchestral touch. Listening to these songs was like visiting an old friend I hadn't seen in nearly 40 years. "Those Good Old Dreams" would have been a great song for this album. I miss Karen & Richard.
