"Despite Herman's Hermits having had a huge international hit with the song less than a decade earlier, the title track (first recorded by the New Vaudeville Band, themselves famous for Winchester cathedral) also became successful for the Carpenters.
Other classics can be found here including I need to be in love and Sandy. Other highlights include You (a Randy Edelman song), Can't smile without you (first recorded by David Martin, who is otherwise unknown to me, this song was later covered by Barry Manilow, who made the song his own), Boat to sail (a Jackie DeShannon song), Breaking up is hard to do (a Neil Sedaka song) and One more time.
Following this album, the Carpenters started experimenting with different sounds and styles, as you'll find on their next album Passage. With hindsight, this album marked the end of an era for the Carpenters and it was certainly a good way to do so."
Another highlight for the Carpenters

"A Kind Of Hush is a fantastic album....Even though it reached #33 on Billboard 200 Album Charts...It did achieve Gold status. 3 singles were released "There's A Kind Of Hush" reaching number 12 on Billboard 100,"I Need To Be Love" reached number 25 on Billboard 100,and "Goofus" reached number 64 on Billboard 100......Oddly I Need To Be In Love did not reach the Top 10.That was Karen's favorite song she ever recorded..I have no idea why Goofus was released as single....They also have other standout tracks on this album like Breaking Up Is Hard To Do,You(a favorite of mine),Can't Smile Without You....MAKE SURE YOU PICK UP A COPY OF THIS CARPENTERS ALBUM"
