I searched for this topic, but it didn't come up in the results....feel free to move/merge to an existing thread.
I forgot to add that I'm very excited about this and truly hope it gets a release. Most likely Oct next year I presume.I thought he might try and get this out for their 50th anniversary. . .sort of a last chance saloon with lots of free publicity.
When, if, released it may stand as the album with the longest gestation period in history. Weren't the first tracks laid down in like '99/'00?
Honestly, I can only divulge what I've known over the years as this concept has progressed.Anything more you can tell us about this, Chris?
Just to clarify, I didn't say that, it was a rumor or speculation that was mentioned a few times. I would think any label would be glad to put it out.something wrong when the great Richard Carpenter can`t get a label to touch him, I`m surprised at that!
Releasing it for Christmas this year would be a great prelude to the Carpenters' 50th anniversary next year. And "Toyland" could be a hidden track on Richard's Christmas album. What a wonderful way to end 2018 that would be.I don't see this being a 50th anniversary release as it's not a Carpenters duo release. Id say it's billed as a RC release for Christmas 2018.
