Hi Eileen. Always liked the Carpenters. Pity they are no longer around. Wasn’t disappointed with your version. Lovely mix of sounds. Enjoyed it. John

Hi Eileen,

Of course, Richard and Karen Carpenter were a 'Duo'. I had forgotten about them! Lovely backing you have chosen for this one. Is this an existing backing from the Genos? Or have you 'adjusted' one of the Styles to suit the song?

A very nice recording, and thanks for posting.

I'm sure you all remember some of the songs the Carpenters sang. Here is one of 'They Long To Be (Close To You)'.



And below is a brief history of the Carpenters.
