The Carpenters: Singles 1969-1981 (CD)

(A&M Records) 21 tracks (71:41)

Few artists in pop history have passed this test as consistently as the Carpenters. From "Close To You" in 1970 to "Only Yesterday" in 1975, Karen and Richard never missed the Top 15.

The Carpenters were the #1 American-born hit-makers of the 1970s, according to Joel Whitburn's author-itative Top Pop Singles. And Karen and Richard's success went far beyond their homeland: They topped the charts from Holland to Hong Kong.

Thirty years after their debut, the Carpenters rank among the most popular acts in recording his-tory. Their worldwide sales top 100 million copies. Their many honors include three Grammy Awards, an American Music Award, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a recording in the Grammy Hall of Fame, and enough gold and platinum records to fill a museum.

Though they recorded as the Carpenters for just 13 years, Karen and Richard made a deep and lasting impact. Their work has not only endured, but has grown in stature.

Karen Carpenter died in 1983 at the age of 32. But the music that she and Richard created lives on. If you made a checklist of the qualities of a great singer, Karen Carpenter had them all: tremen-dous presence, a natural, conversational ease, and impeccable intonation and control.

"The Carpenters"

Carpenters

Geboren am 2. 3.1950 (Karen) - 15.10.1946 (Richard). Amerikas derzeit wohl erfolgreichstes gemischtes Duo verkaufte bislang weit mehr als 20 Mill. Singles und etwa 12 Mill. Langspielplatten mit wohl geschliffen perfekter, aber makellos-steriler Teeny-Rock-Musik banalster Art. Das Geschwisterpaar, das seit 1969 und ihrem ersten Hit „Close To You' die Bestsellerlisten in den USA anführt, landete Erfolge wie „We've Only Just Begun', .,Superstar' oder „Sing'. Erst mit dem Titel „Yesterday Once More' konnten die Carpenters auch einen Achtungserfolg in Deutschland verbuchen.

Der Nachfolgetitel „Top Of The World' behauptete sich unwesentlich besser- erst mit „JambalaYa' gelang auch ein kommerzieller Erfolg. Das Uralt-Werk „Please, Mr. Postman' hingegen konnte ebenso wie die bislang letzte Scheibe des Paares „Solitaire' keinen Erfolg verbuchen. ln den USA hingegen rangieren die Carpenters mit Auflagen von mehr als 1 Mill. pro Album nach dem Split des einst erfolgreichsten US-Duos Sonny Er Cher unangefochten auf dem ersten Platz in der Beliebtheitsskala.
