Only looking back now I realise how young I was – like I almost can’t believe it.

After last night’s post, I just got up this morning thinking back. Went onto YouTube, from my bed (on the HCD) and watched the history of ‘The Carpenters’. I guess that got me onto a roll.

The following selections are not in any particular chronological order. I just sat and looked back over songs from around ‘that time’ – largely but not exclusively from the 70’s. Well, I couldn’t stick just to the 70’s so I strayed a bit!

The songs left are quite good – not just clips - they are full songs. Enjoy. 

Over the next few weeks I certainly be reviewing my collections and sharing a few more.

My next post will be about the life, times  and death of Karen Carpenter.

Best wishes to all.
