Carpenters - Horizon mp3 album

Horizon is the sixth studio album by American musical duo Carpenters. It was recorded at A&M Studios (mainly in Studio "D" using t 24-track recording technology, 30 Dolby, and recorded at 30 inches per second). The Carpenters spent many hours experimenting with different sounds, techniques and effects.

Released on June 6, 1975, critics hail this to be the most sophisticated Carpenters album to date. The album is a technical triumph. It was recorded at A&M Records mainly in Studio D using state-of-the-art, 24-track recording technology, 30 Dolby, and recorded at 30 inches per second to create the cleanest and clearest sound possible.

Horizon was The Carpenters' sixth studio album recorded in 1974-1975. The album contained such hits as "Only Yesterday", and "Please Mr. Postman", The Carpenters' third and last single on the Billboard Hot 100. This album was also the last Carpenters album to contain a top 10 hit. Horizon was received very well by fans and critics alike.

When the Carpenters’ sixth studio album Horizon was released on 6 June 1975, it already boasted two smash hits, with a third just weeks away. By the end of July, the LP itself was starting a second spell at No. 1 in one of the bedrocks of the duo’s fan base, the UK. Listen to Horizon right now. It was the Carpenters’ clever choice of singles, released ahead of the album, that helped Horizon to be such a phenomenal success.

Album Horizon (1975). Label A&M Records. Karen Carpenter, Richard Carpenter. Carpenters "Horizon" (1975) album. Only Yesterday Lyrics.

The resulting Horizon released June 6, 1975, differed from the preceding albums, mostly by value of its production. By this time, A&M Studios had 24 track recording. By contrast, the Offering album is on 8 tracks and the following four on 16; the many overdubbed vocals ate up a lot of tracks!) The additional tracks allowed us to record the acoustic piano, Rhodes, drums, etc. in stereo.
