    I respect Richard greatly as a producer, writer, arranger, musician, etc, but I think he was extremely wise to stop featuring himself as lead vocalist. Karen had a world-class voice. He had an average, singing-in-the-shower voice. But he did sound good when his vocals were blended with Karen's, in the background. They made good background vocals together - and Richard was smart enough to keep himself in the background vocal-wise from 1974 onwards.

    Not a bad idea - a blend of Phil Ramone and Richard. I still like the idea of Karen going with something completely different from Carpenters and the 'Karen Carpenter' LP, though.

    I agree! Although Karen had about 100 other best vocals ever, as well! :)
