Ditto on the poster comments!!!
This 100% ^^As I said (or implied) previously, this really could be the 50th anniversary present we longed for. Even if it doesn't contain any music!
I should know more in the next week. I think it shouldn't be more than a couple of weeks in total. You will receive an email when the poster ships!Okay Randy. All bought and paid for through the link you sent. I’m looking forward to receiving the poster when you get them. Any estimate of expected ship date? Maybe August 30th 2019 to coincide with the vinyl RPO.......?
Thanks for making the poster available, Randy. Also, congrats for pulling off the mammoth task of assembling all those people for your book, and for the great outcome!. I was able to find a place to do bulk posters for a reasonable price. They will be 18" x 24" in size (which is slightly smaller than the window posters you saw in the pic I poster because these do not have the gold-colored border).
The cost will be $20 plus $4 shipping in the U.S. and $15 for International. You can find it listed alongside the book in the bookstore at randylschmidt.com or you can go directly to the poster at this link:
18 x 24 POSTER - CARPENTERS: AN ILLUSTRATED DISCOGRAPHY
"It’s a springboard for what could have been, she could have gone in so many directions after that."An Interview with Randy July 18, 2019.
Q: Out of all the Carpenters albums you cover in this project, which one do you think will benefit from
Carpenters: An Illustrated Discography most?
A: Schmidt: Let me think on that…
"The first one that pops into my mind is Karen’s (eponymous) solo album (from 1980). Hopefully these discussions within the book will send people back—like I said—to listen to this record with new ears. There are some diehard Carpenters fans that cannot stand the album or act like it’s a musical stepchild or something. I think it’s so good in so many ways, even if it’s not meant to be the ultimate Karen Carpenter solo album.
It’s a springboard for what could have been, she could have gone in so many directions after that. I do feel that it’s overlooked."
Liking all the photos in this fabulous book. Especially, page 81 lower right. Karen looking slightly PO'd. I find it a very sexy photo of her - My God, was she beautiful! There, I said it!!
