This is an item unique to Japan – a complete concert video! And, while it may look the same as the album Live in Japan, it is not the same concert, although it was filmed during the same concert tour. The reason it was not released worldwide is that there are Japanese subtitles on the screen throughout the concert. The master tape of the concert without the subtitles apparantly no longer exists, so they had to use this broadcast master as the source video. This is an extremely important document in the history of the Carpenters' career, so it is well worth seeking out! Pretty good audio for its time - and the video is excellent.

Love Will Make a Better You, the only album credited to Love Live Life + One, is a perfect exemplar of the Japanese psych super-session scene. The most successful album by impresario Ikuzo Orita (responsible for Foodbrain and Shiniki Chen), the disc paired a nimble crew of improv freaks (like guitarist Kimio Mizutani) with mainstream pop star Akira Fuse and his band, along with a songbook by saxophonist Kei Ichihara. The resultant album is rich in Sly Stone-influenced funk and wild guitar solos from Mizutani and Takao Naoi. Though Fuse wasn't the only mainstream star to dabble in the avant-garde - normally he covered the Carpenters and other lite American fare - his star presence insured that the album never flew too far into self-indulgence…

Digitally Remastered Double CD Collection featuring 1978's 'christmas Portrait' Backed with 1984's 'An Old-Fashioned Christmas'. CHRISTMAS COLLECTION was released first worldwide in 1996 but took longer to get a release in the US. It combined both Christmas albums, in their entirety, and furthermore featured a near-total-remix of the CHRISTMAS PORTRAIT. “Merry Christmas Darling” was featured in its original album mix from 1978.

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.

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.

Now & Then is the fifth album from The Carpenters, released on May 16, 1973. In Cash Box Year-End Charts of 1973, Now & Then appeared at number 20 and the title for the album was suggested by Richard and Karen's mother, Agnes Carpenter. This is a great cd for anyone looking for some classic Carpenters!

2002’s ESSENTIAL COLLECTION is basically an updated, new and improved version of FROM THE TOP. After a decade in the marketplace, Universal felt it could better the Carpenters box set, so Richard was asked to re-compile it, this time making sure that all of the hits were included – one of the weaknesses of FROM THE TOP. Richard added a couple of rarities to it as well – the Karen/Ella Medley, which hadn’t yet been issued in the States, and a Japanese Morinaga High Crown Chocolate commercial that had been an extra on a DVD release. ESSENTIAL COLLECTION marks the first appearance of a minor change to the album mix of “Solitaire” as a few mouth/saliva sounds are removed to make Karen’s vocal track sound smoother.
