Karen Carpenter – Voice of the Heart (1983)

Voice of the Heart is the eleventh album by American pop duo Carpenters. It was released in 1983 after Karen’s death and contains the two songs from her final recording sessions, “Now” and “You’re Enough”, as well as previously unreleased tracks from sessions over the years. The album’s final cut, ‘Look To Your Dreams’, another Richard Carpenter and John Bettis composition, is a suitably sad, and low-key conclusion. It ends with a piano coda played by Richard and that only adds to our sense of loss. This is not the place to discuss Karen’s illness, but let’s just say, that if there is anyone that can say they have not been touched or cannot recognise the deep beauty in her voice, then there must be something wrong with them. Karen Carpenter’s singing is perfection, nothing more, nothing less.
