This is the Carpenters' first greatest hits album, "The Singles: 1969-1973." The album reached #1 on the UK and US album charts in 1974, and became one of the top-selling albums of the 1970s.
This is the 2013 Universal Music Japan remaster, supervised by Richard Carpenter, and used for the 2014 Platinum SHM-CD and SHM-SACD releases in Japan. This is widely regarded as the best-sounding version of the Carpenters' material found anywhere, and is one of the best-sounding SHM-CDs period. Enjoy the album!.
