    I always thought Karen sounds like she has a slight cold on the track You're Enough.

    It’s to bad that Richard wouldn’t complete these tracks. It would be interesting to hear them. “Love You” sounds like a song he could turn into a duet. Maybe get Michael Bolton to duet with Karen.

    I have every 8Track except singles 74-78 and Yesterday once more. Made In America has a short version to Those Good old dreams. A kind of hush has shorter versions of the title track and Breaking up is hard to do.

    I’m surprised Carpenters fans don’t know this. I hope I don’t come off as rude. I’ve been Listening to Now & Then hundreds of times on 8Track I noticed it when I was 12 back in 2000.

    I can rip my 8-Track obscure songs if you’d like.

    No the reprise tracks are NOT seconds long. Some are 2-3 minutes. Intermission was added twice because each of the 4 programs had to be all equal length. Sometimes songs were repeated, short versions were added, or even better.... An exclusive deleted track not on the LP.

    Example.. Cher’s Gypsies Tramps And Theives album (1971.) Cher’s “Don’t put it on me” was omitted from the LP, cassette, and later the CD. It can only be found on the 8-track and the Bside Of “The way of love.”

    The Reprise tracks are neat and cool to have. Yesterday once more I like that it was included twice because I like the short version. It’s slightly over 2 minutes .

    CarpentersToYou What I feel has come and gone before...

    The short version of YOM was also on the cassette version. I would love to hear the edits!

    Will do!! Just know the quality won’t be the same due to converting analogue to 0’s and 1’s

    Written by the late Sonny Bono, here is Cher with "Don't Put It On Me" (from "The Way Of Love: The Cher Collection" 2 CD set) which the 8 track ran 2:21 instead of 2:38 because of time.: Matt Clark Sanford, MI

    Let’s see...now there’s a song about x’s snd o’s but that’s not quite the same... but I’m sure many will be sending them your way, all in friendship, of course!

    By the way, Cher's "He'll Never Know" (from 1971 "Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves") is also extended on 8 track to 15 or 20 more seconds!! Matt Clark Sanford, MI

    I realized that. When I meant only on 45 and 8 track I meant to say analogue. I have that compilation and it sounds so digitalized. It sits on my shelf unused.
