Man this forum kills me. All the Carpenters talk made me get the Singles 69-73, then I went further and bought Singles 74-78. That wasn't enough so I found Karen Carpenters' solo CD used. That didn't fulfill the hunger enough so I bought the whole damn catalog. I have all the Remasters Classics, Singles 69-81 SACD, KC solo album, Singles 69-73 remastered and unremastered and I just bought the Essential Collection box set and I can't wait to get the DVD's! My lord! I guess this will be my "gotta get everything by that artist" of this year.
