“Singles 1969-1973” by Carpenters - album review

features in: (B-list) Album Chart of 1973(B-list) Album Chart of the 1970s

TJR says

Chart-topping compilation on both sides of the Atlantic, with an annoyingly misleading title. Ironically, Richard Carpenter finds other compilers annoying: “Individuals and groups with two or three hits all of a sudden put them on an album, use filler for the rest and title it "greatest hits". This album contains eleven true hits and it just wasn't slapped together. We've remixed a few, re-cut one and joined a couple of others. It's simply something I believe we owe our audience and ourselves.
