    It was actually one of the Wiki people doing it. He decided that a few Hall & Oates songs were Jazz (they aren't) and when I sited examples of how they aren't, they reverted each one and threatened to have my editing privileges revoked. I haven't bothered with it since. I have a life to lead...LOL!

    Thanks, Ed for providing that perspective.

    In any event, regarding the song
    Trying To Get The Feeling Again....
    It represents (imho) a fine example of where Karen's voice was at in January 1975.
    Given the manner in which the song vacillates between the higher and lower notes,
    I can understand where the decision was made to keep it off of Horizon,
    as most of the vocals on that LP linger, and remain, "in the basement".....
    still.....what a great Carpenters' song.....
    It really should have been completed at that time, 1975.

    seems crazy to allow the public to edit stuff, then call them liers afterwards :confused:

    Gee, I believe a forum member (not I) did some good deeds on Wiki......
    An update shows:
    The Wiki page has been edited, and it now (1/20/2018) reads:
    "The Carpenters' version of "Tryin' to Get the Feeling Again" was recorded during the Horizon sessions in 1975, but it had been shelved as being "one too many ballads". Years later, Richard was looking for the master backing track for "Only Yesterday" and discovered on that same tape the lost, earlier attempt at "Tryin' to Get the Feeling Again" with Karen's "work lead." (A work lead can easily be identified by such anomalies as Karen flipping a sheet of paper over at about 1:50 into the play time of the song as she sight reads and sings.) Richard felt that the vocal was good enough to finish production of the song and release it, as he did in 1994, almost 20 years after it was recorded."
     
  5. Just goes to show you that Wikipedia is as good a source as your neighbor...

    Very True and In Relative context Some neighbors are Reliable and Some Aren't. Which is why i always take a "Wait and See" Approach to Everything..
