Don't hate me, but can we switch to the actual logo, rather than the Christmas Portrait font? It's just an annoyance to me.
I recall seeing it on The Best of Bread album, too.I am kind of surprised that the ® registered trademark symbol never appeared on Carpenters albums. Lots of other groups that were popular around the same time, like Chicago and Kansas, had the symbol next to their logos. Maybe the Carps' logo was copyrighted but not registered, if that's possible. Or they just elected not to use the symbol....I don't imagine it was necessarily a requirement to display it.
