Carpenters : Love Songs CD

  • $11.98


No one in '70s pop made more achingly beautiful love songs than the Carpenters. And this new collection includes 20 of their best: (They Long to Be) Close to You; Top of the World; Rainy Days and Mondays; We've Only Just Begun; Superstar; Hurting Each Other; For All We Know; Only Yesterday; Goodbye to Love; I Won't Last a Day Without You; All You Get from Love Is a Love Song; I Need to Be in Love , and more.
There was a time, before Karen Carpenter was born, when most American female popular singers, even the black ones, sounded a lot like the way she would one day sound. The music of singer-drummer Carpenter and her piano-playing brother Richard came to be called soft rock, but it's really just good, straight American pop. This CD, released in March 1998, is a collection of greatest hits, with a special emphasis on romance. Paul Williams, Burt Bacharach, Sam Lewis, and Victor Young provide lovely melodies, and Carpenter's expressive voice makes each song genuinely affecting. --Stanley Booth
