A number of musicians recorded versions of Leon Russell & Bonnie Bramlett’s song GROUPIE, aka SUPERSTAR including: Rita Coolidge, Bonnie Bramlett, and Bett Midler, but no one had such a Monster Hit with the song as did The CARPENTERS featured as the singer.
 
The late great Leon Russell wrote the song with Delaney & Bonnie Bramlett. Bonnie Bramlett recorded the song she had written, but at the time she was not well known, The Carpenters were hugely popular at they point in time recorded it, naming the song Superstar, and it became a hug hit for the Carpenters.
 
Most people have never heard other artists versions, but they are wonderful never-the-less.
