Harry said:I myself, am unfamiliar with the Veronique album. I'm pretty sure she's French-Canadian.
Rudy said:Murray: was this a Canadian-only release?
Brasil_Nut said:I agree with Harry. Thing is, when VOTH was originally released, Richard didn't like the slick feel of the songs. He felt as if Ramone had ripped off the Carpenters sound--harmonies, arrangements, etc. In retrospect, after Karen had passed away, he realized the value of what she had done with VOTH. As a result, he made the decision to release the album in its entirety--a brave decision, seeing as he was still reeling from the loss of Karen.
I felt Karen's vocals were great , certainly pushing herself into different areas and with a few changes of tracks , delete My Body , Remember When etc and replace with two / three outtakes and certainly this set would have enjoyed success and in no way undermined Carpenters future Albums.......
