Hi everyone, I'm a longtime viewer of this site and a first-time poster. My love for the music created by Karen and Richard knows no boundaries. I've been hooked on Karen's voice and Richard's melodies ever since I first heard them in elementary school back in the 1970s. I'm happy to say I even helped sing a few of their tunes at school assemblies. One thing I've grown a greater appreciation of as I've gotten older and heard all of the Carpenters' official releases is their vocal harmony. That's why I chose Without A Song for my forum name. No other song in their repertoire can match this one for the beauty of their blended voices in my humble opinion. For my first post, I'd like to focus on a topic that I don't think has ever fully been addressed, at least that I can recall. I'm curious to know how many unreleased Carpenters tunes there are which feature Richard on lead vocals, and also if there are on outtakes from his first solo album "Time" that might one day come out. I've heard his wonderful take on "You'll Never Know" and the short snippet of "When I Take My Sugar to Tea," which was also nice. I hope they both will be released eventually. When I joined the Carpenters' official fan club in the late 1980s, I bought the entire set of newsletters. I remember reading that when the Carpenters were planning to do a follow-up album to "Made in America" one newsletter stated that the new album would feature two songs with Richard singing lead. Were "Fool Me" and Love as Old as the Heart" those two tunes and does anybody know if these tracks were completed? In closing I just want to give my heartfelt thanks to everyone connected in some way with this forum. You've helped sustain my love and appreciation for music made by Karen and Richard Carpenter, separately and especially together. For that I will always be grateful!
