    Carpenters Are Gold

    This 2 CD set contains some of the absolute best work of the Carpenters.

    The Carpenters Gold Album really is worth having!

    Just the Liner Notes alone are worth the price! It is fascinating to learn the reasons why they recorded certain songs and why Richard regrets allowing Hollywood to make a movie about Karen. The variety of songs run the gamut from the chart-toppers to the bizarre, but I loved the all! And will always love Karen and Richard Carpenter!
