Karen Carpenter - Keep My Lovelight Burning (2015 Daybeat Remix)

Karen Carpenter loved her solo album tremendously. I have made it my mission to bring her solo works to the forefront and develop a strong following for the work she loved and of which she was very proud.

Last week I contacted David Hornos Esteve, a talented remixer about cleaning up and remixing the song "Keep My Lovelight Burning" (one of Karen's unreleased solo songs). David accepted the challenge immediately and in a matter of two days he produced a professional (and outstanding) remix of a favorite Karen Carpenter tune. Thank you David for giving us a new and fresh perspective on this song.

After the remix was completed I went to work on Monday March 2, 2015 (Karen's 65th birthday) and created a video for the song. I spent 8 hours over a span of 14 hours to make the video. I started at 7 am and finished a 9 pm. I used a total of 95 photos for the video which contains 1194 frames to create the motion which stays in tune with the beat of the song.

Please subscribe to my channel on youtube to keep up with the new mixes and videos that will be coming through the year.

The Carpenters Online Interviews Expanded Edition

 My dear friends my new book "The Carpenters Online Interviews Expanded Edition" is now in complete release. It is available in both paperback and Kindle e-book formats

This is the link to the Kindle Edition:

The paperback is a bit pricey, though it is a beautifully designed book and it would be all yours in your own hands.

The Carpenters Online is a book of interviews I conducted primarily between 2004 through 2008 with songwriters, musicians, authors, etc that have been in one way or another connected with Carpenters or Karen Carpenter. The expanded edition includes updated interviews with many of these same people as well as newly done interviews with more songwriters, musicians and engineers.

Some of the best new stuff in the book includes an updated interview with Russel Javors, who wrote a few songs on Karen's solo album and was also a musician and arranger on her album. He shared some great insights on Karen and her album as well as sharing a quite truthful insight about the shelving and viewpoint of her album. Russell Javors shares a great never before seen photo of Karen. There's an all new interview with Glenn Berger, an engineer who worked on Karen's albums, he admits he's never been a fan of Carpenters music but was amazed by Karen's voice while working on the album. One of the co-writers of the song "Prime Time Love", Danny Ironstone​ gave a great and very in-depth interview about this song that until now we knew very little about. Finally, I got an interview with Terry Draper, a founder of the band Klaatu and one of the songwriters of the song "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft," he gives us a never before known fact as to how the song actually made it's way to Carpenters.
