180g Audiophile Vinyl Double LP!
Glorious Pop Nuggets On Double LP! Includes "Karen's Theme"!
The Collected album by the Carpenters brings a beautiful collection from the
immensely popular soft-pop duo. From their humble beginnings in the late '60s
until today, siblings Karen and Richard Carpenter are one of the most successful
duos in musical history. With Karen's absolutely perfect vocal delivery and
Richard's creative arrangements, they are unstoppable.
This 2LP set inside a gatefold sleeve brings together their hits, album tracks
and more. It delivers the best selection of easy listening songs in a nutshell.
Glorious pop nuggets by the Carpenters will melt the heart and uplift the soul,
including "Close to You", "Ticket to Ride", "We've Only Just Begun",
"Superstar", "Rainy Days And Mondays", "Bless the Beasts And the Children",
"Hurting Each Other" and many more.
An Easter egg is the track "Karen's Theme" by Richard Carpenter, who dedicated
this song to Karen after her tragic death in 1983.
Producing a distinctively soft musical style, they became one of the
best-selling music artists of all time. During their 14-year career, the
Carpenters recorded 11 albums, 31 singles, five television specials, and a
short-lived television series.
The Carpenters had three No. 1 singles and five No. 2 singles on the Billboard
Hot 100 and fifteen No. 1 hits on the Adult Contemporary chart. In addition,
they had twelve top 10 singles. To date, the Carpenters' album and single sales
total more than 100 million units.
