| THE CARPENTERS: LIVE ON STAGE - IMM941009
A gorgeous 1971 live performance from the Carpenters – capturing the duo at the moment of their breakout success.
The huge early hits are here: “Rainy Day And Mondays”, “For All We Know”, “(They Long To Be) Close To You”, “We’ve Only Just Begun.” An intriguing cover of the Beatles’ “Help” opens the show. And an extended Bacharach-David medley reminds us of the beauty and sophistication of the best easy-listening soft rock of a classic period.
Throughout the show, Karen Carpenter’s singing is pure, clear and lovely, and the arrangements are consistently tasteful and appealing. A beautiful set of songs from that great duo, Richard and Karen Carpenter.
