One of my favorite artists of the 70’s is getting the vinyl box treatment. A new box set featuring high-quality vinyl versions of all of The Carpenters’ studio releases, with the exception of their two Christmas albums, will hit stores on November 17. The Vinyl Collection includes 12 discs spanning from the group’s 1969 debut, Ticket to Ride, through 1989’s Lovelines. The discs feature restored original packaging and artwork. The LPs also will be available for purchase individually.
