Just doing a bit of research. . .and I see that CARPENTERS SINGLES '74-'78 was in the top 5 of the UK album charts for 8 WEEKS. I knew it got to number 2, but not for such a long amount of time from 9th Dec '78 to 27th Jan '79. So when Karen was over here signing the album in Harrods and sent that postcard to RC on Dec 12th, the album was going from No.4 to No. 2 - hence her writing "the album is getting hotter by the minute."

Considering back in the US the last 2 singles failed to crack the top 40, and the last 2 albums failed to reach the top 30, it must have been a nice boost for her to look across the department store and see that album right at the (almost) top of the charts. . . .especially considering everthing was falling apart for the duo career wise at this moment.

When us Brits were watching that Bruce Forsyth show on Xmas Eve '78, I bet there was many a singles album wrapped up under the tree. In fact I would have been watching it too, of course I was only 10 months old, but my folks had it on, apparently.

I remember vividly - late night, dialing in WLS from Nashville, and hearing Postman... That's when I first discovered I could tune in far away "big cities" and travel through space and time to Chicago-land....

I liked the way they used a slight reverb on their DJ mikes... and it sounded so cool - to hear K & R popular all over the country! :)
