Discussion of YESTERDAY ONCE MORE (84) leads to addition to Resource

A recent discussion of the forum of the 2-LP compilation YESTERDAY ONCE MORE issued as a TV direct response advertisement has led to its inclusion in the Resource. Normally, early compilations in other territories have been omitted as they pretty much always contain the standard album or single mixes up to the time that they were issued. But this YESTERDAY ONCE MORE compilation in 1984 kind of started the ball rolling for Carpenters compilations and set the stage for the 1985 compilation that began the remix bandwagon. As such, we felt it was a natural for inclusion here.

Titled CARPENTERS CHRISTMAS MEMORIES and longer than the TV program, it’s sure to be an annual favorite by fans who have been clamoring for Christmas videos for a long time. So keep an eye out for your local Public Broadcasting TV station’s schedule this holiday season.

Flat Baroque single mix

In a roundabout way, we’ve once again been made aware of something that had slipped by us before, and that’s that there exists a dedicated single mix of the song “Flat Baroque”. 1351-B Flat Baroque 45Member Rick-An Ordinary Fool tried to tell us about it way back in 2003 – and it was reinforced by member A&M Retro, yet it went largely unnoticed for all these years.

The single mix is apparently only found on the b-side of the 45 of “It’s Going To Take Some Time“, and does not appear to be on THE COMPLETE SINGLES that Public Television sponsored and released.
