Another Slow Disco Car Ride


Corynn Oceana by Brooke Olimpieri
The opening track is on the recently released compilation album The Heart Volume 4, out on Tokyo Dawn Records.

The Karen Carpenter solo album had been shelved for 16 years before it eventually came out in 1996. Some say that her brother Richard, the other half of successful easy listening duo The Carpenters, did not like the sexual content of some of the lyrics. Others claim that label boss Herb Alpert did not like the project, because it did not sound like the Carpenters. Most probably we will never find out the real reason why it has been withheld for so long. Fact is that the album has a very good slow disco sound and it is a real treat to listen to, no matter what the commanders in chief thought back in 1980.

Enjoy this new slow disco car ride!
