    18 y/o Karen Carpenter

    Excerpt from Your All American College Show. Recorded Live on 6/22/1968. I’m not sure if the bass player in this video is the same, but very early in the history of the Carpenters (back when they were primarily a jazz trio), their bass player went on to become the Principal Tubist with the...
