In a way, MIA wasn’t even I Believe You’s debut album, that would’ve been the 1978 Classics. Sure it was only released in Asia, but I wonder how many copies were imported to the US/Canada or other countries.I agree 100%. After waiting nearly FOUR years for a non-seasonal new LP from Carpenters, we finally got one with 10 songs included. And, horror of horrors, one of them was a song we already had on a 45. Obviously, both Karen and Richard felt very strongly about 'I Believe You', but I wasn't very happy to see it taking up space on the new LP. It's a good song, but it wasn't fresh like the rest of the album.
