The Carpenters were always different. In a world of glitter, glam, prog, rock and myriad styles of music they followed their own musical mantra, one where harmony, love of the old songs and melody reigned supreme. Yet theirs was no bland pop, not formulaic nor predictable, they produced some of the most inventive pop during their 14-year career. The Carpenters recorded 11 albums, released 31 singles, and toured the world with drummer/vocalist Karen beguiling audiences with her beautiful voice and Richard wowing the public with his keyboard skills and arranging abilities.

In 1972, the Carpenters fourth album A Song For You showcased the true consistency of their craft, with not a bad track in earshot. The title song, another Leon Russell number, along with the beautiful, "Goodbye to Love" - a Carpenter/Bettis original with an outstanding guitar solo by Tony Peluso, which British DJ legend John Peel declared to be one of his favorites - are standouts. It's also home to further gems like "Road Ode" and "Crystal Lullaby." "Road Ode" in particular displays just what a fine vocalist Karen was; her ability to go from soft and sultry to hard edged is astonishing.
