Dedicated to my brother Richard with all my heart.— Karen Carpenter, in the liner notes of the album
Karen Carpenter is Karen Carpenter's eponymous solo album. Recorded in late 1979 and 1980, Carpenter cut a few demo tracks in New York with producer Phil Ramone. Executives at A&M Records weren't satisfied with Carpenter's new sound, so Carpenter decided to never release any of the songs. In 1989, Carpenter's brother, Richard, released a few of her solo songs on the album Lovelines. Those songs, as well as the remaining completed ones, were released in 1996 on this album. All tracks on this album are how Karen mixed it in 1979.
