Carpenters — Ticket To Ride (aka Offering) ... LP 1.99

Early genius from The Carpenters – a really tremendous little album, and one that's quite different than their soft rock hits of the 70s! There's a plenty playful feel to the set – energy that comes right off the best Sunshine Pop of late 60s A&M Records – to which this album is a perfect link – a mode in which the studio's as much a part of the sound as Richard and Karen's own contributions – wrapped up with a heavenly approach by producer Jack Daugherty. Tunes are simpler, sometimes more personal – and there's lots of nice basic music touches along the way – a piano here, sweet keyboard there, some gentle drums, and more – all to make the music sound totally groovy! If you've ever heard the Roger Nichols music for A&M, and wondered how he could have such a later link to this pair, this is the album to show you the way. Titles include "Nowadays Clancy Can't Even Sing", "Your Wonderful Parade", "Turn Away", "All Of My Life", "Ticket To Ride", "Don't Be Afraid", "What's The Use", and "Someday".

El/Richmond (UK), 1988. New Copy
One of the grooviest records to come out on the late lamented El label! Would Be Goods are a slightly-silly girl pop combo – with a style that's a bit like Bad Dream Fancy Dress (the other great girl group on El), but with a sound that's a little sweeter. The album's nice and cheesy, and ... CD
