"It I was always like the music of the Carpenters, the love the singing voice of Karen. I think that is beyond the era of many of their songs. So the Yukitai I also sang ……" Nikki Parrott

The show features all the classics like ‘There’s A Kind of Hush’, ‘Close To You’, ‘Rainy Days and Mondays’, ‘A Song For You’ and more, plus Dami’s hit singles ‘Alive’, ‘Super Love’ and ‘Gladiator’. She will also reprise her stunning song for the Eurovision Song Contest, ‘Sound of Silence’, which is already polling in the top 5 out of 46 countries on the fan polls, with the incredible video being viewed almost 2 million times since its release! Some may ask why a tribute album (covers)… fact is no one asks opera singers why they rinse repeat Tosca etc etc. One of the biggest shames of the pop era is the buyer mentality of disposable music (affecting pop styles globally, some countries worse then others). I'm personally very happy that Dami has released this selection of great Classic Carpenters… in her own unique style.

The duo's best album, and the place to start beyond the hits compilations. Up to the release of A Song for You, the Carpenters' success had seemed an awesome if somewhat fluky phenomenon, built on prodigious talent, some beautifully crafted pop sensibilities, and a very fortunate choice of singles…

The Carpenters were an American vocal and instrumental duo consisting of siblings Karen and Richard Carpenter. Producing a distinctively soft musical style, they became among the best-selling music artists of all time. During their 14-year career, the Carpenters recorded 11 albums, 31 singles, five television specials, and a short-lived television series. Their career ended in 1983 by Karen's death from heart failure brought on by complications of anorexia. Extensive news coverage surrounding the circumstances of her death increased public awareness of eating disorders.

Usually the name Gold: Greatest Hits means "avoid this album." Many times small labels will buy the rights to some obscure songs by a big-name artist and then release it under that very title. But despite the name, this collection keeps the crap in the middle of the album, buried between the good stuff. In fact, this is a really good retrospective of this band. The dark and lonely ballads that Karen Carpenter sang take center stage, pushing brother Richard's pop contributions to the background. The album starts strong enough, featuring several of their biggest hits, including "Superstar," "Rainy Days and Mondays," "Goodbye to Love," and "It's Going to Take Some Time." And the album ends with more big hits, such as "Top of the World," "(They Long to Be) Close to You," and "We've Only Just Begun"; even their Klaatu cover, "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft," makes it. But the middle is a danger zone of filler, featuring forgettable tracks like "Please Mr. Postman" and its ilk. But this collection has the requisite amount of good Carpenters songs to make it worthwhile, and anyone who does not have these songs on album should give this a listen.

This was the first compilation of Carpenters material, occurring during the duo’s career and released during a period of intense concert-performing rather than producing a new studio album. In spite of that, this 1973 album presented fans with new ways to hear the old songs, starting with an uncredited overture before the first song, and including a re-recorded version of their first hit along with segues to link several more songs. The result was a very listenable album rather than just a collection of tracks.
