White-bread pop legends the Carpenters never made videos in the MTV sense, so the 11 clips on The Carpenters, Interpretations: A 25th Anniversary derive from lip-synched performances on various ’70s TV variety shows (spruced up, after the fact, with digitally remastered versions of the songs). Given the duo’s minimalist performance style (they smile from time to time) and the depressingly similar sets used for every song, there really isn’t much here on a visual level to hold your interest. Buy their greatest hits CD instead. C+
