Over at the wonderful A&M Corner site, a few of us Carpenters / Karen Carpenter fans have been discussing the artwork surrounding her solo album. It's been a lively discussion- and we pretty much all agree that A&M Records' decision to not release it in 1980 was a critical turning point in her career and life. We've been searching for a particular photograph used as the back cover of it but to no avail. (Go to this thread.)
If anyone reading this has information or personal involvement regarding the original artwork for the album, drop me a line here or go to the forum. Thanks.
No, the photo above isn't it, burt it is one of my favorites. From the "A Kind of Hush" photo sessions. (Click on it for full size.)
