Interpretations: A 25th Anniversary Celebration

カーペンターズのトリビュート・アルバムが話題になっているが,この作品は反対にふたりがカヴァーしていた曲を21曲も集めたコレクション。おなじみのヒット曲が大半だが,未発表曲1など貴重なものも収録。リチャードによる詳しい曲目解説も付いた充実の作品だ。

Interpretations is a compilation album by The Carpenters, released in February 1995 in both cassette tape and CD formats. Three of the songs on the album were previously unreleased; “Without a Song”, “From This Moment On” and “Tryin’ to Get the Feeling Again”. The album was released in order to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the duo’s debut album Offering. A VHS of the same name was released several months later, featuring footage from the duo’s TV performances. It was later issued on DVD.
