Oh, that voice! For all too short a time, we were lucky to have Karen Carpenter sing for us. As Linda Richman would say, “Her voice – it’s like buttah.”
Her poor self-image, which led, eventually, to her death from problems brought on by anorexia, was never evident on her recordings.
I daresay we will never hear her like again. These days, vocal quality is not as celebrated as it once was.
