After my spin of Richard Carpenter's solo effort, "Time", I went back in time and gave a complete re-listen to "Offering". Love this album. The opening vocals with, "Invocation" are simply beautiful. Karen's early reading of "Ticket To Ride" is one of my favorite performances. So many interesting musical things happening with this album. The string arrangements are stunning, as is Karen's drumming and Richard's Keyboards. "All of My Life" and "Someday" are extremely well executed, on every musical level. I like the chic-phasing on "Get Together", '60s though it may be! For the most part, I enjoy every song on this album. What became of Gary Sims on Guitar? Did he leave the entourage?
