Here, then, is my dilemma: The 45-Single Superstar, with B-Side Bless The Beasts and the Children was released August 1971. The Soundtrack Album was released September 1971. The Album, A Song For You was released June 1972, with the latter song included. Is it my understanding that the song is a One- Take Lead Vocal ? Multiple takes of this song never existed ?(Bless the Beasts and Children). It has been 'drilled' into me that Carpenters recorded multiple takes for many of their songs, so that presumption--that multiple takes were recorded--is simply unfounded ? What did they 'hear' upon playback---on the Studio Speakers/Monitors ? How did that 'sound' escape notice?
