Pete Prescott… This masquerade, lovely version. I remember the first time I heard that voice.i was just about to go to school one morning ( in sittingbourne) Tony Blackburn played it. It was we’ve only just begun. Wow!
Sheila Maile… Yesterday once more. When she died it was an awful waste saw the biopic of the carpenters story on TV. A real tearjerker. One of the best female vocalists ever
Jan Warren… Yes, “Goodbye to Love” is my fave too!!
Alan Esdaile… yesterday once more
Anne Gower… Leaving on a jet plane
Chris Fagg… …”Goodbye To Love” great piano cadences…
Chris Meachen… While I always thought they were far too squeaky clean for my tastes, her voice was utterly beautiful, as were the lush harmonies in their music. If I had to pick a favorite, it would probably be ‘Close to you’..
Charles Sharrod… every note still touches my Trisha’s heart
Chris Sambrook… Bloody good drummer was Karen Carpenter. Close to you gets to me everytime. Reminds me of my first girlfriend i loved. HHMM must have been a longtime ago. Would have been a bit strange if it had been Silver Machine ENUFF said.
Iain Cobby… ” Good bye to love” fantastic lead break that fades oh too soon. Makes me cry…………
Pete Fisher… the late great Tony Peluso…live version here, solo from around 1’37”… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7riL90lH7M

Arthur Sutherland… Would anybody buy it if the singles were incomplete?
Pete Brazier… Close to you! (not you Alan, I like you but not that way)
