  1. I always assumed that Karen WOULD have sung some stacked backing vocals there, but never got the opportunity to do so.

    Richard then finished it the best way he could with other singers.

    In my post (#430) where I posted the 1983 Entertainment Tonight interview
    with Richard Carpenter, I do note his parting words:
    "I'll never want to retire." (2:43).

    Here is an interesting exercise: Tony Peluso's songs Happy and Sailing On The Tide
    were both written around the same time (1975, Source: CFCN).
    Now, we know they were recorded at different times:
    Jim Gordon drums for Happy (and, almost all of Horizon and Hush LPs).
    Ed Greene drums for Sailing On The Tide (and, three Passage songs).

    In any event, here is the exercise.
    If you did not know of the above-noted song differences,
    could you identify that these were different drummers on those two Peluso songs ?

    Very good observation and no, I wouldn’t have known there were different drummers on each song unless I’d read the liner notes. Both songs are quite similar in that the choruses feature extensive use of tom tom drum fills.
