Made in Canada exclusively for Reader's Digest by PolyGram Special Projects, a division of PolyGram Group Canada Inc.
Printed in Canada

Issued in a cardstock box with a 32 page booklet with Liner Notes and an October 30th 1978 interview with Richard and Karen Carpenter.

From the Liner Notes regarding the 1974 live track D6:-
"The 14 1/2-minute Burt Bacharach/Hal David medley contained in this set is a previously unreleased sampling of those "live" recordings. In 1977, Richard added the mixing background vocals and kick, and Joe Osborn played the bass part. What remains that is "live" consists of drums (sans kick), the orchestra and, most importantly, Karen's lead."
