    It’s taken from the 1971 BBC concert. I think they're mining/lip synching but it's still great to watch. A track I never grow tired of and I love the organ towards the end.

  2. A little bit late but it should still be on the BBC radio player.
    On Johnnie Walkers Sounds of the 70's Sunday show yesterday, Top of the world was played about 1 Hour 10 into the show. A short old interview with Richard was played before playing the track. Richard was telling the story as to why Carpenters released the song as a single.

    Gary, I also came across this program on my local PBS station (KVIE) last night while channel surfing. I saw "Carpenters" referenced on the screen and came to a screeching halt. Though it is a pledge drive, it has some great snippets in it. Karen singing a full rendition of Christ Is Born and in her green Calling All Occupants...jumpsuit (OMG she IS beautiful!) for The Christmas Song. And they also included footage that I had never seen before, Petula Clark at the piano shortly after Karen had died singing a tribute to Karen. It was moving...I also noticed that the hosts of the pledge drive came back on the air teary-eyed from that segment. They apologized for being emotional! It is amazing the impact Karen Carpenter has on people even to this day.

  5. Wandering around in Walmart this morning, and heard Carpenters on their music system.

    Christmas song? Nope. "Close To You."
