    I always thought side B was dull in comparison with the A side, which sparkled due to the segues and the beautiful overture. Side B almost felt like “oh and here are the rest of the hits”.

    Maybe there was not any more space? Are you thinking of an ending overture.

    I just meant that side A flows beautifully from one song to another and many of the tracks had been reworked (and in two cases, remixed), which makes for a “new” listening experience. Side B was just the remaining singles lined up in no particular order and in their original form.

    Richard Carpenter, Billboard Magazine, November 1973:
    "How much of an impact we'll have, is hard to say.
    Acts have gone up and set records, and then all of a sudden the public has had enough of their sound.
    They never totally leave, but they don't enjoy being at the top. It's not the happiest thing to think about,
    but it's fact."
    "...I pay close attention to what our public seems to like..."

    Karen drums on.....
    1974 Hi-Crown Chocolate Commercial Jingle
    1974/1975 Please Mr. Postman , Happy.

    In the same 1970's period, Karen drums on:
    Good Friends Are For Keeps Commercial (1975)
    The Suntory Pop Commercial Jingles (1977).

    By the way, the best way to get a feel for Karen's drumming is the 4-cd set,
    From The Top ,
    Karen is well-documented as a drummer (about 50% of the represented songs), on this compilation.
