Urge Universal Music Group and Richard Carpenter to complete and release Karen's remaining solo tracks

1,224 Signatures Goal: 2,500

The world has embraced Karen Carpenter and Richard Carpenter and their music since 1969. Through the years, the famous brother and sister duo enriched the music scene with 10 studio albums, 3 posthumous albums and countless compilations featuring melodious songs of hope, love, and joy. Fans who have been loyal and faithful followers regret the fact that uncompleted, unreleased solo tracks of songs sung by Karen still exist.

Therefore, we request that the principals from Universal Music Group and Richard Carpenter reconsider their current position on the existing music repository, and produce and release the remaining tracks, which total nine or more. These would be produced into either an expanded edition of Karen's solo album or a separate, new second album. In either case, we would also like to see the songs accompanied by complete liner notes with commentary, insights, and photos from Richard and those involved in the recording and production of Karen's solo tracks, which may include all or some of the following: Bob James, Rod Temperton, Russell Javors and Rob Mounsey

While we recognize that this is a huge undertaking, we are confident that the end result will surpass expectations and be a rewarding experience for all. The world wants to welcome these unreleased songs not only as a tribute to the memory of Karen, but also as a tribute to both Karen and Richard, and what they represented to us as Carpenters. This is music to be enjoyed by those of us who have grown up with Carpenters, and by a new generation of listeners who also appreciate Karen's superb vocal qualities.

We, the fans, believe the time to move forward with this undertaking is now, 30+ years since the anniversary of Karen's passing.


These are the nine unreleased solo tracks:
I Do It For Your Love
It's Really You
Jimmy Mack
Love Making Love To You
Truly You
Don't Try To Win Me Back Again
Something's Missing (In My Life)
Keep My Lovelight Burning
Midnight Never Lets You Down


If you support our efforts and share our desire to see the remaining solo tracks released, then please add your name below.

    Richard, Karen was your sister, so you do what feels right. But if it feels right to let myself and others hear and enjoy what Karen created, please from your heart release the remaining tracks. I would so love to know what she sang at her Godchild's school. My Mom was lucky enough to see you both in the 70's and you and Karen are at the top of my list of people I will never get to see perform. There will never be a voice like Karen's. The first note, you know it is Karen. If you would, please share her gift to us all. We all love you and Karen and want so much to keep her memory and voice alive if we can as I know you sure do. God Bless
