THIS IS ANOTHER FIND OFF BETA,AND PRESERVED FOR COLLECTORS
ONLY,THIS IS THIER FIRST TV SPECIAL,STARRING KAREN and RICHARD
CARPENTER,JOHN DAVIDSON,ELLA FITZGERALD,50 mins without the
commercials,they sing all of their hits pre May 16,1980,
This ABC television special is what its
title claims: "Music, Music, Music." There was very little
conversation, so a maximum amount of music was performed in the
limited amount of time available. Guests were Ella Fitzgerald, John
Davidson, and the Nelson Riddle Orchestra. John Davidson's musical
talent may be overlooked, but he was able to sing quite well. He
was upstaged, of course, by two of the best singers of the
Twentieth Century. Ella Fitzgerald fans will appreciate seeing her
perform an equal amount of time as Karen Carpenter, and she sang a
wonderful duet of old standards with Karen as well. Richard and
Karen did not rely on the early hits for this musical outing, but
they did briefly touch on them toward the end. Some newer songs
chosen for this presentation may not be familiar to those people
looking for The Carpenters' best known hits, but this performance
is still captivating
,
Richard Carpenter:
Good evening and welcome to a show about the things we love. Music
and the people who make it. 
Karen Carpenter:
Richard and I can think of no better way to spend an hour, than to
fill it with music. 
Richard Carpenter:
Many hours in our lives have been spent that way and this one is
special, because it includes America's first lady of song... Miss
Ella Fitzgerald. 
Karen Carpenter: And
a man who's always welcome, because he's one of the best friends a
good song ever had... John Davidson. 
Richard Carpenter:
So after all the hour's of music that have preceded this one in our
lives, we are very happy to welcome you to one more hour of music,
music, music.
