Music Groups - Carpenters, The

The Carpenters were a vocal and instrumental duo, consisting of siblings Karen and Richard Carpenter. Carpenters were the #1 selling American music act of the 1970s. Though often referred to by the public as "The Carpenters", the duo's official name on authorized recordings and press materials is simply "Carpenters", without the definite article. During a period in the 1970s when louder and wilder rock was in great demand, Richard and Karen produced a distinctively soft musical style that made them one of the best-selling music artists of all time

1 She had one of the most interesting voices out there that went far deeper than the lyrics she was given to sing. Sadly, I think Karen was badly haunted by many things. And how many Carpenters hits have there been for Richard not involving her voice? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 3, 2010, 2:59 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Karen_Carpenter_Story The Karen Carpenter Story is a TV movie that aired on CBS on January 1, 1989. It was directed by Joseph Sargent. Richard Carpenter served as a producer for the film as well as the musical score. It was very popular in the ratings; it was the highest-rated two-hour TV movie of the year and the third highest rated such program on any network during the 1980s. Although the film's attempts to show the life of Karen Carpenter are usually accurate, there are a few minor dramatic factual inaccuracies. Factual inaccuracies Tom Burris, Karen's husband, didn't have the same name as stated in the film nor did they divorce. Karen was still married to Tom ( Bob ) and was due to sign the final divorce papers the day she died. Karen is shown reacting to a Billboard Magazine article that describes her as "chubby". No such article was ever written about Karen. However, there was an article that claimed Richard to be "chubby." A poster for the Carpenters album Made in America is shown on various tours throughout the 1970 - 1972 time frame in the film, while the album was not released until 1981. The film also gives the impression that Karen did not make a solo album in 1979. She did, but it was not released until 1996. As Karen is walking up the stairs in her parent's house in Downey, California to go to bed on Feb. 3, 1983, her mother, Agnes, says to Karen; I love you. This probably did not occur and was put in the movie to try and give it some kind of happy ending according to the book "Little Girl Blue, The Life of Karen Carpenter", a biography by Randy Schmidt (2010). Karen had apparently gone downstairs on the morning of Feb 4, 1983 to start the coffee machine and went upstairs to shower and get changed. Her parents heard the sliding door of Karen's walk in wardrobe closet, and knew that Karen was up. The mother, Agnes Carpenter went to call her on their extensive room to room phone, as their house was big. No answer so she went to the stairs, and called for Karen. No answer, so she went up, and found Karen lying on the floor of her closet. This is from Ray Coleman's biography on The Carpenters THE UNTOLD STORY. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on December 2, 2010, 5:44 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
