As Time Goes By is the posthumous fourteenth and final studio album by American music duo Carpenters. It was initially released in Japan on August 1, 2001. An international release was originally to follow soon thereafter, but the release of the album generated copyright discrepancies among several publishers. These discrepancies were not resolved until late 2003, delaying the album's international date of release until April 13, 2004.

Background[edit]

As Richard Carpenter writes on the group's official website: "The tracks contained on this collection span the years 1969–1982, and are culled from a wide variety of media: demos, outtakes, live performances, as well as the Carpenters' television specials. The recordings encompass the majority of the Carpenters' recording career and are an eclectic mix, containing the likes of "Dizzy Fingers", "My Funny Valentine" and "Dancing in the Street".
