EAC rip | 1CD | APE - Log - Cue | Covers | Release: 1978 | 267 MB
Genre: Soft Rock, Christmas

Following their somewhat experimental Passage album from 1977, the Carpenters released Christmas Portrait in 1978 on A&M Records. Produced by Richard and Karen, the album peaked at No. 145 on the Pop Albums Chart and remained a consistent seller over the holiday seasons, eventually going platinum. It included their signature Christmas song, "Merry Christmas Darling," co-written by Richard. The Carpenters originally recorded "Merry Christmas Darling" in 1970 and released it as a single. However, the version on this album features a newly recorded vocal by Karen.
The out-of-print West German reissue of Christmas Portrait (from which this rip is taken) is the only official CD release that contains the original mix of this album. Subsequent CD reissues have been remixed and feature at least two other noticeable differences. First, in the original mix, Richard sings "O come o come Immanuel AND ransom captive Israel" on the first track, whereas on subsequent releases he sings, "O come o come Immanuel SHALL ransom captive Israel." Secondly, in the original mix, there are no choral backing vocals in "Ave Maria," only Karen's lead vocal, whereas all subsequent releases do include the choral backing vocals.
All Music Guide: An essential album for your fireside Christmas, it sold a million in 1978 and contains the classics "Merry Christmas Darling" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."
