Ticket to Ride is the first studio album by American music duo the Carpenters. At the time of its initial release in 1969, it was issued under the title Offering, with a completely different cover photo. It was a commercial failure and produced only one minor hit single, a ballad version of the Lennon-McCartney song "Ticket to Ride". After the Carpenters' subsequent breakthrough, however, the album was reissued internationally under the name Ticket to Ride and sold moderately

Ticket to Ride (formerly Offering) is the debut album of The Carpenters, released in 1969. The album was a commercial failure at the time of its release, only spawning one single, "Ticket to Ride"; the minor success of the single caused the repackaging of the album from its original name. The songs selected also featured more rock than pop.

Issued as a single in April 1965, it became the Beatles' seventh consecutive number 1 hit in the United Kingdom and their third consecutive number 1 hit in the United States, and similarly topped national charts in Canada, Australia and Ireland.

In some ways, Ticket to Ride is the Carpenters' most interesting album, for it contains a range of interests and sounds that were modified or abandoned on subsequent albums. The lushly orchestrated "Someday" is a brilliant showcase for Richard's arranging skills and the most dramatic side of Karen's voice - it points the way toward songs like "Crescent Noon" on the next album, and although that highly dramatic sound proved a blind alley, it did result in some ravishing performances by the duo.

The single "Ticket To Ride" from this album was a modest hit in 1969. It is a ballad version of the Beatles hit from several years earlier. Richard reworked it to excellently serve Karen's crystalline alto voice. The debut album from Richard and Karen, released in 1969. This is a must-have for any Carpenters fan. The version of the song 'Ticket To Ride' is different to the version that has been included on numerous compilations. Karen re-recorded her vocals and drums for the 1973 'Singles' compilation, and that's the version that has always been used, as far as I know. The original version sounds more melancholy and I prefer it to the later version. The other tracks, while not well known, are all excellent

After the Carpenters' subsequent breakthrough, however, the album was reissued internationally under the name Ticket to Ride and sold moderately The CD in the "Remastered Classics" series went out of print in March 2007 However, in Japan, the "Pack Series" released the Ticket to Ride and Close to You CDs together.

I think I'm going to be sad I think it's today, yeah The boy that's driving me mad Is going away. He's got a ticket to ride He's got a ticket to ride He's got a ticket to ride And he don't care. He said that living with me Was bringing him down, yeah He would never be free When I was around. He's got a ticket to ride He's got a ticket to ride He's got a ticket to ride And he don't care
