Carpenters - Yesterday Once More: Greatest Hits 1969-1983 Box Set,
Digitally remastered two CD compilation from the '70s Soft Rock hitmakers with different artwork than the long-deleted U.S. version. From the late '60s to the early '80s, nobody created music as lush and beautiful as the Carpenters. They were in a class by themselves with Karen's haunting and lovely voice and Richard's expert arrangements. Unlike most of their compilations, Yesterday Once More creates different moods by featuring the tracks in non-chronological order. Disc One mixes Soft Pop and Soft Rock ('Superstar', 'I Won't Last a Day Without You' and their excellent cover of Klaatu's 'Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft') while Disc Two features a more mellow, ballad heavy mixture of audio wonder ('We've Only Just Begun', 'This Masquerade' and the all-time classic '(They Long to Be) Close to You'). a truly fantastic collection by the duo and a perfect selection for those wanting to relive the magic of the Carpenters. 27 tracks.
