The Carpenters, Live in Japan

The lovely Karen Carpenter sings ‘Close To You’ live in 1974 from Budokan, Japan. The song was written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David and was their first huge song hit that the Carpenters covered way back in the fall of 1970. Karen and Richard were definitely the ‘sensation’ of the seventies and why not? Karen’s beautiful vocals were and still are a joy to listen to.
