Nice rare Carpenters Photo, also rare are Karen @ the drums by 1975 and she appears to be smiling, probably cause she's @ the drums. Thanks! P.s. At first glance Bobby Darrin looked like Liberace. must be that hair!!

Bobby Darin was cool! Great voice and lots of great songs. I also admit to liking a lot of Carpenters stuff too, they are a guilty pleasure!

The Carpenters were awesome. Their music stands the test of time, the ultimate test.

Who doesn't tear up every Christmastime when they hear "merry christmas darling"?

Richard Carpenter's musical arrangements were special too.

I guess we pretty much all enjoyed the Carpenters. I am with you there, Ray!
