Finally somebody featured besides Randy Schmidt. There are other Carpenters experts out there.

I wish that someone would re-engineer those Carpenters hits. They sound so MOR and adult contemporary today.

This is the time of year they actually get radio airplay (Christmas).

Illustration of how much a decent arrangement, producer, and performer can affect a song.

THIS was the original version of "Close to You", as released in 1963 by gay icon and heartthrob Richard Chamberlain. It's almost painful to listen to.
