  3. Many, many thanks, Mark and Will!! Mighty fine listening!! Yes, Karen was one of my very favorite vocalists, as well as an instrumentalist. We saw her a couple times when we were in Nevada many years ago, and thoroughly enjoyed the shows!! I remember telling my wife that we couldn't sit any closer to the stage at the one show, or I would get up, leave her and go "talk trash" to Karen. I always thought she was a beautiful woman in addition to being a fine vocalist!! Thanks again, guys!!

  4. I hate to say it, but track 13 "There's A Kind Of Hush" is distorted and staticy all the way through the tune. I tried d/l'ing through another browser, but the same effect. All other tunes sound just fine!! Dunno where the problem is, but track 13 is totally unlistenable. Sorry!!

  5. I downloaded the compilation and hear exactly what you're talking about and I most sincerely apologize for the bad track. I'll fix this forthwith and have the single track uploaded with all the proper metadata so you can simply overwrite the new file with the old one.

    This is the link to download a good copy of track 13 from "An Instrumental Tribute To Karen Carpenter". Sorry I let a bad track slip past me. Obviously Freemake video converter doesn't properly handle converting .wma to .mp3.

  7. All is fine now, Will!! Many thanks for fixing things. I hope that anyone else who downloads this fine set reads the comments to see what transpired. There was no possible way to listen to the original track 13.

  9. Hello Will,
    Thanks Will for this, may I kindly ask, I can hear a high frequency sound at the beginning of track 12 Hurting each other and it's noticeable at the end, is this something that can be sorted, it also appears to not be as sharp as the others are, perhaps it is like this on the original but I just thought to mention it anyway, thanks again for the share.

  10. Does anyone have Instrumental World Hits Volumes 1, 3, & 4 by Ralf Willing & His Multisound Orchestra? If so, please post. I saw these at the Instrumental Music Cafe' site, but all the download links, excepting volume 2
