 The first Klaatu Album was played on Caroline from Spring '77 so have owned since that time.
It's a superb album throughout and can highly recommend.
There were some rumours when it first appeared that it was The Beatles!

  I am not really a great fan of the Carpenters , because I find their usual " easy listening " style rather boring. However , I really like this weird song , which is atypical for them : the strange lyrics are set to a scintillating arrangement , and the result is very impressive. However , the record was only a minor hit , reaching no.32 in the U.S. in 1977. The " B " side is a very appealing ballad , more typical of their style , which should perhaps have been the " A " side to please their many fans.
