Once Again I Remember

Today is sadly the 24th anniversary of the death of the greatest female vocalist of my time.

Of the many songs that Karen Carpenter recorded, this was her personal favorite (according to her brother and others who knew her).

I should have known that you liked Karen - one of my all time favorites too. You're probably a bit younger than me so I wouldn't call her "the greatest female vocalist of my time.
I would say, "the greatest female vocalist since Doris Day." By that I mean Doris' 40s Big Band stuff. What a short and tragic life Karen had.

dm the more I learned of her, the more it seems she slowly committed suicide.

pjc we all have our favorites.

abf Her recordings are still out there. Her last gold single was 12 years after she died.
