About this deal

The albums 'A Song For You' and 'Yesterday Once More' along with 'Gold' have been on my system all over the weekend. With the wonderful and unique voice of Karen Carpenter along with the beautiful arrangements by her brother Richard make this one of the classiest collections of pure 70' pop perfection. This compilation's songs have more refined and re-recorded tracks, less noise in the background, and a lot of reverberation in the background. Richard Carpenter, played by musical arranger vocalist Greg Stevenson, is also featured in theshow performing on the piano, alongside his sister enjoying on stage humour, often introducing the array of hits whilst light-heartedly engaging with his musicians.

All of these songs (with the exception of "Tryin' to Get the Feeling Again") are from the Japan-exclusive album As Time Goes By. Goodbye To Love' 'Yesterday Once More' 'Close To You' are just some of the highlights of the Carpenters career. Ticket to Ride", the only song here that is of a 1973 remix, is a fully re-recorded version of the original.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. This excellent-value 20-track collection features just about all the classics you would expect – “Close To You”, “Yesterday Once More”, “Goodbye To Love”, “Top Of The World”, “Only Yesteday”, “Please Mr. Greg Stevenson who effortlessly recreates Richard’s sublime piano playing supported by a band oozing Seventies glitz !

Karen did not appreciate the deep vocals of the original, and felt that she could do a better job for The Singles: 1969–1973. She undertakes the character of Karen superbly, paying meticulous attention to her mannerisms, 'brother – sister' relationship with Richard and the playful interaction with her band and audience. But International West End vocalist Vikki Holland-Bowyer has the warm dulcet tones which sound uncannily similar to the superstar. The tracks from As Time Goes By were remixed in the late 1990s/early 2000s and had not yet been released in the United States, while "Tryin' to Get the Feeling Again", from Interpretations, was originally recorded in 1975, but was left off Horizon due to the fact that it would have been too long.The original cover artwork had "Greatest Hits" in place of where "35th Anniversary Edition" is on the US cover. These songs are the original mixes, meaning that they have not been retouched since their recording. not only perfectly emulates Karen’s legendary rich contralto, she even gets behind the drums (pictured). This version is the single version, which Richard Carpenter claimed to have a guitar riff before each of the verses, whereas the version on Horizon had no guitar riff.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. These songs include a harder bass drum line and considerably more reverberation than the original version. Carpenters Gold supremely captures how they were ‘live in concert’ and is a must for all fans of the fantastic Karen and Richard. That version contained just one disc with 20 tracks, all of which were also featured on this American version.The covers of both releases have the same look as the 1992 Gold: Greatest Hits compilation album by ABBA.
