This is a video release of a 1970 television special by the group 5th Dimension. Karen and Richard appear to perform two songs during the show: "Reason to Believe" and "Superstar." They actually lip-synch the songs rather than perform them live...
They also appear very briefly with the 5th Dimension for a little comic banter (very BAD comic banter) in between songs, but that's it for their appearance on the special.
Merle Haggard and Dionne Warwick also appear on the special, although not with Karen and Richard. All-in-all it's a nice visual item for true Carpenters fans, but not of particular interest for the casual listener.
