2002’s ESSENTIAL COLLECTION is basically an updated, new and improved version of FROM THE TOP. After a decade in the marketplace, Universal felt it could better the Carpenters box set, so Richard was asked to re-compile it, this time making sure that all of the hits were included – one of the weaknesses of FROM THE TOP. Richard added a couple of rarities to it as well – the Karen/Ella Medley, which hadn’t yet been issued in the States, and a Japanese Morinaga High Crown Chocolate commercial that had been an extra on a DVD release. ESSENTIAL COLLECTION marks the first appearance of a minor change to the album mix of “Solitaire” as a few mouth/saliva sounds are removed to make Karen’s vocal track sound smoother.

The ESSENTIAL COLLECTION also balanced out some of the remixing by placing some genuine original mixes of some of the early hits alongside later remixes of other tracks. The track “Good Night” is omitted here as are a couple of Karen’s solo tracks.

After four years in the marketplace, ESSENTIAL COLLECTION got a re-release in 2006 with slightly revised packaging, omitting the outer cardboard box.
