A bit off-topic: The Dorothy Hamill TV Special, which aired 3/2/77, had Jerry Weintraub as Executive Producer. Dorothy Hamill was also a recently-signed artist to Weintraub's management company. Now, as much as I enjoy Make Me Laugh (primarily because it is a new-found Karen Vocal), why wasn't a more suitable/memorable Carpenters' song chosen to be performed on the program ? As with the later concerts, attention focused less on the music and more on the "showman-ship." Even if, as has been documented, Richard (and Karen) exercised more control over their post -1975 career, the choices being made in the Weintraub-managed era were not necessarily good ones.
