Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing of this album from the soft pop duo. Made in America is the tenth album by Carpenters, and was the final album by the duo to be released during Karen Carpenter's lifetime. Released in June 1981, the album reached #52 in the US and #12 in the UK. In 1985, Richard said "that was Karen's favorite album and is mine, out of all our projects". Karen played drums in the studio for the first time since Horizon on the song "When it's Gone (It's Just Gone)", albeit in unison with veteran Nashville session drummer Larrie Londin, and she also played percussion on "Those Good Old Dreams" in tandem with Paulinho da Costa. The Carpenters produced a distinct soft musical style, combining Karen's contralto vocals with Richard's arranging and composition skills. During their 14-year career, the Carpenters recorded ten albums, along with numerous singles and several television specials. Their career together ended in 1983 following Karen's death from heart failure brought on by complications of anorexia.
