    So, probably not a thread that many will post on....but my daughter's 18th birthday is coming up in the few weeks. She recently shared her list of what she would like....

    included on the list was a Carpenters CD with specific selections that she likes.....2 full CDs and then I added a 3rd of more songs...

    Sounds like a good choice I would suggest starting by looking for the compilations or albums with at least most if not all the songs on her list or if you have a cd recorder as well as the songs she wants you could make those cds yourself That's just my Suggestion but nevertheless Good Luck. ( that is provided you haven't done these things already but I just wanted to say I think it's a good idea my daughter just turned 18 in February so I understand what that's about)

    That’s a good plug for a re-release of the Sweet Memories CD.

    If your looking for compilations, you might want to check out the Carpenters Collected album from Europe (was also released in the Netherlands about 10 years ago under Ultimate Collection). The set contains two discs of their hits, plus a third disc of tracks from the three solo albums.

    Thanks all. I have all vinyl albums and mp3 of each also....and just about every CD compilation there is. I am enjoying making her the set and picking which mixes I want on the CD. When I get it all completed, I'll try to post the track list and pictures of the CDs. Having lots of fun. Haven't made my own compilation for a while....

    Try this link. After you upload, you will get a link to that image. Here on the forums, when you click on the "image" button to the right of the "smilies" button, you can take that link and paste it there.

    Hope this helps. :D

    I see that you've included two songs from Richard's second album (three if you count Sandy). Did you think of including any tracks from Richard's fist album "Time".
  15. Song4uman

    Song4uman Active Member Thread Starter

    I did on one of the first three CDs. When Time was All we had is from Time....
    The version of Sandy is the AKOH version...just from the different album.
  16. tomswift2002

    tomswift2002 Active Member

    Quite frankly, Richards solo version of Sandy I consider more of a remix than an all new recording.

    my daughter LOVED her 4 Carpenters Cds. Her birthday was Sunday and she was looking forward to listening to them in her car.
