Carpenters is the third studio album by American music duo Carpenters. It has been said that the strength of these recordings is what caused Richard Carpenter to ask his sister to front the band for their live performances instead of playing behind the drums.
Amongst many fans, the album has simply been referred to as "The Tan Album"because the original LP cover, complete with overlapping flap, Iron Maiden - Flight 666 (The Film) (DVD) like an oversized tan envelope,   and is presumably a play on The Beatles ' so-called White Album.
In Cash Box ' s Top Albums ofCarpenters was listed as one of the year's ten biggest albums. Bruce Eder of All Music Guide gave the album a mixed review mocking the cover as, "a decorative picture of the duo similar to a graduation photo ", also calling it very MORexcept for "Superstar".
Similarly, Rolling Stone called the album "exceptionally sharp MOR", calling "Rainy Days The Trooper - Iron Maiden - Piece Of Mind Mondays", "Let Me Be the One" and " A Place to Hideaway" as more adequate than the other songs on the album, in spite of adding their prior album to their list of the greatest albums of all time. They also proclaimed that, "the Carpenters have more going for them than against.
The music of "Rainy Days and Mondays" was composed by Roger Nicholsand the lyrics were written by Paul Williamswho later recorded his own version of the song. It was released as Help - Carpenters - With Love single and charted well in the United States at number 2 on the Billboard Hot It was used as the B-side of " Rainy Days and Mondays ".
The song talks about how joyful Saturday is, and how joyful it is to Filou Fox - Jetzt Gehts Los Friday. This remix can only be found on the From the Top box set. It starts with Richard counting off, and Richard's Miracles - Various - Number One Country Hits Of The 80s (1980-88) line is different from the original mix.
The fadeout is also removed. The reason Karen stopped singing suddenly in this version is because she forgets the words, which is why she says something about "where I can figure out where the melody is, I'll sing it" Richard states he has little doubt the song would have been a hit if it was released as a single. According to Richard Carpenter, Randy Sparks was the opening act for Richard Carpenter at his club in Westwood in late early Three years later, Richard remembered the tune and felt it would be suited for the album.
The Carpenters performed it on their television series, Make Your Own Kind of Music on August 10, on a set where Karen wears a white and red ensemble with a dark blue background with a big letter "K". It was used during the wedding sequence, where it was sung by the relatively undiscovered Larry Meredith.
The Carpenters released their version as a single in January Later that year, the Carpenters performed it on The Andy Williams Showwith Karen in a lacy outfit with a blue background. Although the song only peaked at 3 on the Billboard Hotit still remains a favorite amongst many Carpenters fans. The video from The Andy Williams Show is not widely available, with the exception of snippets of their documentary, Close to You: Remembering the Carpenters.
James [Arthur] Griffin and Robb [Wilson] Royer of the popular '70s soft-rock group Bread petitioned the National Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to use their real names on their awards, but to no avail, as the published composer credits are under their respective pseudonyms. Written by Bonnie Bramlett and Leon Russell"Superstar" had been made popular by Rita Coolidge inbut the Carpenters' version, released as a single in Augustbecame an international hit.
Richard did have reservations about the lyrics, however, which he found a Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark - Talking Loud And Clear (Extended Version) too suggestive. After changing "I can hardly wait to sleep with you again" to "I Help - Carpenters - With Love hardly wait to be with you again," he recorded Karen singing the song, reading the revised lyrics from a napkin.
What wound up on the finished recording was the first time Karen had ever sung "Superstar". After only the first take, Richard claimed that her performance was "perfect" as it was, and did not need repeating. The music of "One Love" was composed by Richard Carpenterand the Help - Carpenters - With Love written by John Bettisin the late s, when both had jobs at Disneyland. Richard replaced the strings solo with a live piano solo for that performance.
