I mean, has there been a release within the last few years that hasn't been delayed? It's like the Carpenter way. If it's all in the name of quality product, I'm all for it.
I would be surprised if there were no delay. "Okay, what's wrong with it??"
I completely agree. Release it in early or springtime 2019. To truly coincide with the 50th anniversary. Make it special!I wonder why Richard is even thinking of putting this out now. Would have been far better to wait until the 50th anniversary in 2019.
I would assume since we have not seen any release information thus far that a release on this box set would not be for this holiday season. I would bet this might see a release in early 2018. In any case I changed my order on the Carpenters Collected so I am set to get my limited edition white vinyl set for release later this month. This will hold me off on the entire box set for later release of which I'm sure I'll buy. I have the purple colored Lovelines on vinyl which sounds great so I won't be too disappointed if it doesn't show up on the box set. I think the jackpot would be if both solo albums were included with Karen's being the first time ever.
Do we even know if this is being produced in Japan, US or UK? We really know very little.
Chris May, any hint of vinyl grade? No mention of Voice of the Heart.
It's great for the younger fans who never owned these albums on vinyl, or for people who got rid of their original vinyl and later regretted it, or to replace their old worn out copies with fresh vinyl. I have the original LPs of all these albums, and my copies are pristine, so I'm not sure whether to buy this set or not. It depends on the packaging, whether there's a book included, and the quality of the vinyl and mastering. I think I'll wait until some of you get the set and play the disks, and then base my decision on your reviews.I'm on the fence about this. It will depend on the overall packaging and any "value added" material. It's a bit expensive for something that I will never play and already own in multiple formats including the original vinyl.
I'm excited that it's being released though.
To further clarify, it looks like the contents are as such:
Ticket To Ride
Close To You
A Song For You
Now & Then
The Singles, 1969-1973
A Kind Of Hush
Made In America
Voice Of The Heart
If their debut LP is listed as "Ticket to Ride," I suppose that likely means the jacket artwork will follow the "Ticket" reissue and not "Offering". I don't know. Would really like "Lovelines" on vinyl but have all the others in the original vinyl issues and especially don't need another copy of "MIA" or "Hush". I guess I'd have to echo Murray's response.
