It’s on my “Carpenters Jazz Side”
Playlist on my iPhone. I play it a lot. It includes Another Song, A Song For You, This Masquerade, The Karen & Ella Medley, Only A Fool, If I Had You,Prime Time Love, All I Can Do and others.
It would have been so great to hear them do an actual complete jazz vocal album, or Karen recording an album on torch songs. What could’ve been.....
There's a thread somewhere here about this discovery. But I don't remember where.So the 45 single is a little different from the "Passage" album?? Is the 45 single sounds like stereo?? Matt Clark Sanford, MI
I also can't understand how this vinyl version got so messed up when it came time to put it out on CD. The only one that carries much of the vinyl version is the original 70's Passage CD.
Also, CBS did a better marketing job with the single jacket as it’s purple with a photo of Karen in a blue suit leaning against a post and Richard in a blue & white cowboy button up shirt and navy pants, with his left arm stretched out behind Karen and touching the same post.
I don't see any evidence of "CBS" on that page.
Did you take a look at that link? This was a CBS promo 45 on the CBS label.Tom, my point was that the record was still on an A&M label - it was merely pressed by CBS in Germany. They wouldn't have had anything to do with promotion or marketing. Many, many US records on the A&M label were pressed by Columbia pressing plants, but the marketing and promotion all happened at A&M. Your post said it was on "the CBS label".
Sorry but it’s a CBS issue. It’s only the “A” side that has the CBS lightning bolt. A&M may’ve licensed it to CBS, but CBS was in full control of marketing.
