 Billboard's Hot 100 only became 50/50 split on airplay and sales in June 1973, before that it was a sales chart augmented with airplay (hard to explain but airplay was only a factor the lower on the Hot 100 chart you got.)

 Record World's chart was more radio based, with BB being more of an even split between sales and radio. At least, that's how Tommy James explained it in his book.

 Chip Taylor did a funny song about all this (can't find a video, alas).

 was the Record World (formerly Music Vendor) chart also more sales oriented than Billboard?

 Cash Box, of course, was a more sales-oriented chart than Billboard. This song peaked at #24 in CB, and only #32 in BB.

 Australia. Is the only one to get the Full Album version on a Single. All the rest are the Edited Version of 3.59. Cutting off the Radio Dj Part and Starting at the Intro to the Song. Yet on Every Compilation or Greatest Hits Package on Cd It Is Always the Album Version. So When they play It on Radio You know that It Is From Cd as this Is the Version You will Hear. H.

 As far as I know, I've STILL never heard this version! Only the Klaatu version.

What an amazing sleeve!. The Carpenters were notorious,by Richard Carpenter's own admission,for twee,dare i say "crap" sleeves.This has shocked me for it's modernism. Compare it to the typical carpenters photo on the dutch issue and you'll see what i mean.

 The single was apparently a very sales heavy record. All evidence indicates that, while there was airplay, it was driven mostly by sales during its Hot 100 chart run. On Billboards "Rack Singles Best Sellers" chart, the record was listed in the top 40, well into 1978, which would indicate the record sold well in non-traditional outlets.

 my copy's the white label small centre hole version in an "A&M" company sleeve - no mention about it being a promo, but I'd agree that it looks like one - definitely a US pressing, but no mention of this either.

 If you say so, Beatlejohn. Seemed unusual to me to a) have a small hole, b) the raised centre, and c) no mention on the label of being a promo.

 Klepsie, Zabadak....Moved DJ promo here...It's a US DJ!....John

 A&M put heavy pressure behind this one; The Carpenters had not had a hit for a while. They even tried to buy radio ads that did nothing but play the song.
