12 timeless recordings, 1 signature voice. Very few greatest hits collections have been as hugely successful as the Carpenters’ The Singles 1969–1973. The Carpenters’ track record of hits, and their ability to appeal to a broad spectrum of listeners, were in part what made the album so popular.
This was the first compilation of Carpenters material, occurring during the duo’s career and released during a period of intense touring. The 1973 album presented fans with new ways to hear the old songs, starting with an uncredited overture before the first song, and including a re-recorded version of their first hit along with segues to link several more songs. The result was a very listenable album rather than just a collection of tracks.
All the favourites are featured like "Top Of The World", "Rainy Days and Mondays", "Yesterday Once More" and of course "(They Long To Be) Close To You".
