    Here in Germany we have a bilingual tv station (German and French) which is called ARTE . Go to www.arte.tv to find a two part music documentary called "Abba, Bee Gees and Carpenters - The ABC of rock taboos ". It is about those three groups, who were turned down by "music critics " during their heigh days, but who later became "crown jewels" of pop music. It features performances and interviews of the Carpenters, which I have never seen before.

    It’s funny , those are the theee seventies groups whose music made it to China after the end of the cultural revolution and became mega famous . Probably plus John Denver , Simon and Garfunkel. Everybody knows about the carpenters phenomenon in Japan, but in the 80’s and 90’s it sound be hard to find a person in China who did not know the song yesterday one more . But it was all bootleg so perhaps not talked about .

    Still in documentaries, another book coming out and the royal philharmonic work with them/him, this is why I can`t understand why Richard still thinks they aren't `interesting` or relevant!


    I just searched for one of the clips in that documentary, Jacob Collier singing `Close To You`.
    have to say, whilst I wouldn't buy it, I kinda liked it :D
