Made in America album for sale Product Description

Made in America album for sale by Carpenters was released Sep 25, 2012 on the Universal Japan label. Featuring the Carpenters' last hit single, the lovely, string-laden "Touch Me When We're Dancing," MADE IN AMERICA was the siblings' final release before Karen Carpenter's tragic death in 1983. Made in America CD music It had been four years since Karen and Richard's last album, PASSAGE, a solo album Karen had recorded in 1979 with producer Phil Ramone but unreleased until 1996. Some fans may be disappointed by the lack of the Carpenters' traditional '60s covers, as MADE IN AMERICA features a larger-than-usual number of songs written by the songwriting team of Richard Carpenter and John Bettis.

carpenters last hurrah
Made in America album for sale in 1981 (two yaras before karen's untimely death), the carpenters released what would become their final "new" album together... and it was hailed as their "comeback" for good reason: it contained their last top-twenty hit "Touch Me When We're Dancing" --a smooth, stylish, more "adult" sound for the duo... and many of the songs reflect the changes of the pop landscape at the time: "Strength of a Woman" features Karen's most mature, introspective singing (despite the bitter irony of the title), an interesting percussive and bass line.... and a new backup singing sound, featuring Caroline Dennis, Karen, Maxine Waters Willard, and Seidah Garret (billed as "the Carpettes")--the sound evokes the BeeGees, while later on "Want you Back... " has a guest turn by Daryl Dragon (Of Capt. & Tennille fame) with his signature synthesizer sound. A highlight: the Bacharach/Carole Bayer Sager penned "Somebody's Been Lyin'" --vintage Bacharach, with a Braodway-sounding orchestral accompaniment. Each song on this collection is distinctly unique, which makes it a pleasurable and surprising listen. Richard Carpenter's remastering of the original disc (done in 1999) is exceptional. And Karen's performance exemplifies why her creative legacy and stature only grows with the passage of time.

One of the best
I think the songs on this album are amazing. My favorite being "Touch Me When We're Dancing" Karen's voice never disappoints me, she always sounds amazing. I wonder what she'd be like today is she wouldn't have passed :( The Carpenters' legacy lives on, and this album helps!

Classic Carpenters
One of their best albums, and unfortunately, the last studio album from the duo. Great production and a great selection of songs. Karen never sounded better!
