I have it here on my YouTube channel... I didn't upload it before now as I knew it was already out there, but didn't realise until I read this post that it had been taken down!There was an interview that Karen gave without Richard where she talked about each track from Christmas Portrait. Karen talks a lot about how Richard wanted the album to sound and what would appear. It’s been said that he wasn’t involved 100% and I know he said this should really have been titled Karen Christmas album but the way Karen talks about each song, it’s evident Richard had a lot to do with how this album turned out.
The links to this interview were on this thread but they were from 2015 and the videos are no longer available.
I have this interview although it’s been spliced to remove all the songs but she talks about each track.
The interview is only Karen talking and runs about 12 mins. It was given to me on a CDR a long time ago.
I’m sure everyone has heard this but I don’t understand why it’s not on u tube.
It’s titled "A Christmas Portrait Interview w/ Karen Carpenter on KIQQ Los Angeles aired Dec 24 1978.
