A SONG FOR YOU, Karen and Richard Carpenter's fourth album, is an unusual record. Alongside the usual million-selling hits, here including "Top of the World," "Hurting Each Other," "Goodbye To Love," and the film theme "Bless The Beasts And Children," A SONG FOR YOU contains a number of brief instrumentals designed to showcase Richard Carpenter's keyboard and arranging skills. Elsewhere, sibling Karen sings as beautifully as ever, and her dusky, clear alto is at its most expressive. The CD was remastered by Richard Carpenter in 1998 as part of a general overhaul of the Carpenters' A&M catalogue. A limited-edition Japanese release features 32-bit digital remastering and an LP-style slipcase.
Artist Overview
The brother and sister duo of Karen and Richard Carpenter were purveyors of a exquisitely crafted pop sound that garnered them a enormous string of Top 10 hits in the 1970s. Employing first-call sidemen, compositions from top writers like Bacharach-David and Paul Williams, and innovative, harmony-laden production, Richard Carpenter created an ideal, wonderfully slick bed for Karen's angelic voice. Unfortunately remembered almost as much for Karen's 1982 anorexia-related death as for their music, the Carpenters brought a truly innovative sound to the soft-rock genre.
