So this is really the first Christmas that people have been able to actually watch the Carpenters Christmas Memories. The release of this PBS DVD last year really didn't get out of the gates until after Christmas. Of course some people did receive it before Christmas, but most didn't get it till January. Anyway, it's kind of odd how the DVD features the video in anamorphic widescreen, when the original videos were in 4:3. Now then the widescreen does preserve the 4:3 (since it's like when you watch a Blu-Ray of an old movie, such as It's A Wonderful Life), but its still an odd configuration for DVD. Also, it would've been nice if Richard had given us both 2.0 mixes and 5.1 mixes, or even a PCM 2.0 mix. Of course some of the mixes on this DVD are unique to this DVD. There are the songs Make Me Laugh and Christmas Alphabet which have never appeared anywhere else. The mix of O Holy Night seems to feature a different piano than what is on An Old-Fashioned Christmas, the medley of Winter Wonderland/Silver Bells/White Christmas is also edited compared to the version on Christmas Portrait.
