Hi everyone. With Richard's recent interview (thanks again, Chris!), it seems as if we won't see any further unreleased tracks from our favorite duo.

I've been thinking about building my own Anthology CD set, and I have come up with a disc breakdown. Would anyone be interested in seeing if I have the individual songs in correct order by the recorded date?

I have left Christmas recordings off the list.

Here it is:

hey there,

well most of it seems fine, at least year by year, though some were recorded earlier in a year than others. . . e.g. "You're Baby. . ." was recorded in Nov. 1980 whereas Somebody's Been Lyin' was laid down in June/July or August.

The only year by year errors I can see are "From the Heart. . ." which was recorded in '74 rather than '77, and I'm pretty sure "Sailing on the Tide", though composed in '75, wasn't recorded until '77. Also "Can't by me love" was done in '67 (?) and not '69.

Hope this helps. If you wanted I could try and pin some of them down to the month they were done.

That would be an interesting collaborative project if those in the know could iron out the order to at least the month of each recording. I personally have no knowledge of those details.

Well, Honolulu/Leave Yesterday/Slow Dance/I believe You were done Sept '78.

From the Top/Essential Collection allows you to do some detective work, since it's "very" chronological. We know they started MIA on June 12th and that "Because We Are in Love" was recorded just before the wedding on August 31st, ergo we know that Touch Me, When it's Gone, Make Believe were all done between June-Aug, and that "Dreams" was done in Sept/Oct/Nov.

Little Girl Blue was recorded in April '78 for Space Encounters, and Where Do I Go. . .was recorded prior to this.

We know that it was on their parents wedding anniversary that they recorded Aurora/Eventide so that would put those 2 tracks on April 9th 1975.


I'll get back when i think of any others

"Because We Are In Love" and "Somebody's Been Lyin" were recorded August 27,1980-four days before Karen's Wedding.

"Make Believe" and "Prime Time Love" were the first tracks recorded for MIA-June,1980.

This is fascinating stuff....after we get all the info gathered on dates can someone re-post the list with times and dates next to each song? I've been wanting something like this forever of their entire catalog of songs.

It appears we are not getting anything else from Richard so what we have is what we have....we should do this now. Is it possible to update the Carpenters Recourse site with this info when we have it all together?
