Well, that's the other thing. there seemed much more variety to ABBA's songs. The Carpenters would probably never have wanted to do a song a rocking as "Gimme Gimme Gimme", but if they had wanted to...

ABBA.

Karen Carpenter had one of the best voices ever in popular music - but a great voice isn't everything. After the initial novelty of the first few Carpenters singles, which were great, I...

How come I have never heard of this Anthony Phillips album? Maybe because it's billed as a "Collaboration"?
