Carpenters - Now & Then   

Now & Then is the fifth album from The Carpenters, released on May 9, 1973. In Cash Box Year-End Charts of 1973, Now & Then appeared at number 20. The title for the album was suggested by Richard and Karen's mother, Agnes Carpenter. As an outgrowth of the Garden Party incident, an oldies revival occurred in pop music around 1973, so Side "B" of the album featured an oldies medley. The medley starts with the Carpenters' original, "Yesterday Once More". Tony Peluso, the Carpenters' electric guitarist, is heard as a radio DJ throughout the medley, which included such songs as "The End of the World", "Dead Man's Curve", "Johnny Angel" and "One Fine Day". The only other time he was heard as a DJ was on the Carpenters' "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft" in 1977.
