Karen Carpenter died on 4th February 1983 and, although the phrase 'sadly missed' is overused and often misused, in her case it is absolutely justified. Her distinctive, liquid-golden-honeyed vocals, all-American but always crystal clear, backed by brother Richard's lush arrangements and orchestrations, graced the world's charts for most of the 70s, serving as a melodic counterpoint to some of the excesses of the rock industry's output at the time. Contain all the hits performed live in 1972
