A special playlist to celebrate the masterful song craft and recording brilliance of Richard and Karen Carpenter.
Combining groove with a sense of songcraft, drummers are the driving force of any group. Here we present the best female drummers of all time.
In a world of glitter, glam, prog, rock and myriad styles of music, Carpenters followed their own musical mantra, one where harmony, love of the old songs and melody reigned supreme.
Greatest hits collections are very often big sellers, and for obvious reasons, but few have been as successful as the Carpenters’ The Singles 1969–1973.
Released in October 1983, Carpenters’ ’Voice Of The Heart’ is a posthumous release that captured the deep beauty in Karen Carpenter’s voice.
From kit-bludgeoning belters to dependable backbeat-riders and technically gifted geniuses, these are the best drummers the world has ever known.
The album features Carpenter's new arrangements of the group's timeless, original vocal and instrumental tracks.
A&M/UMe will celebrate one of the best-loved melodic pop acts with the 17 November 2017 release of the 12LP Carpenters Vinyl Collection box set.
The latest sales awards from UK industry body the BPI show that the Carpenters have struck gold again, with their 2000 compilation The Singles 1969-1981.
