  1. "All By Myself" (Expedia)

    Eric sold his catalog directly to Round Hill.
  2. They're still writing songs for me when I was a teenager. Wow! Bernie
  3. Cyrus Erie/Quick/Raspberries Club Gigs

    Kirk, Cyrus Erie did, indeed, briefly reunite. Bernie
  4. Thanks to George Gell, who compiled a list of Eric Carmen's club gigs at what was originally the "Hullabaloo," then "The Exit" and eventually "Cyrus Erie West," by scouring local newspapers. This list is obviously not comprehensive—as Eric's bands played many other clubs—but it's quite a handy reference. 11-04-67 Hullabaloo — Lemon Pipers, Cyrus Erie 01-05-68 Hullabaloo — Cyrus Erie 04-13-68 Hullabaloo — Cyrus Erie 09-28-68 Hullabaloo — Cyrus Erie 11-02-68 Hullabaloo — Cyrus Erie 12-07-68 The Exit — Cyrus Erie 01-10-69 The Exit — Cyrus Erie, Factory 01-24-69 The Exit — Cyrus Erie 02-14-69 The Exit — Savoy Brown, Cyrus Erie 30-15-69 The Exit — Cyrus Erie 04-02-69 The Exit — Cyrus Erie 06-14-69 Cyrus Erie West — Choir, Cyrus Erie 07-05-69 Cyrus Erie West — Cyrus Erie 07-11-69 Cyrus Erie West — Damnation of Adam Blessing, Cyrus Erie 08-08-69 Cyrus Erie West — Cyrus Erie 08-22-69 Cyrus Erie West — Quick 09-13-69 Cyrus Erie West — Quick 10-04-69 Cyrus Erie West — Quick, Harlequin Colour 10-17-69 Cyrus Erie West — Quick 11-7-69 Cyrus Erie West — Cyrus Erie 11-22-69 Cyrus Erie West — Quick, Moses 11-29-69 Cyrus Erie West — Quick, Harlequin Colour 11-31-69 Cyrus Erie West — Quick, Poe, Dust 12-12-69 Cyrus Erie West — Quick 10-16-70 Cyrus Erie West — Bang, Raspberries (first gig!) 10-31-70 Cyrus Erie West — Raspberries 11-20-70 Cyrus Erie West — Raspberries 11-25-70 Cyrus Erie West — Raspberries 12-30-70 Cyrus Erie West — Raspberries 05-21-71 Cyrus Erie West — Raspberries 06-11-71 Cyrus Erie West — Raspberries 06-26-71 Cyrus Erie West — Raspberries
  5. In Hindsight: Raspberries' Fresh (1972)

    Goosebumps from 2:36 on. If you don't get 'em, this website's not for you. Bernie
  6. Cyrus Erie/Quick/Raspberries Club Gigs

    Funny you chose that particular band, LC. When Cyrus Erie flew to New York City to do their first recording sessions, their producer had them cover "I Need Someone (The Painter)" by the Lemon Pipers — an odd choice. Here's the tune:
  7. Jim Steinman dies at 73

    Super talented guy! Without Steinman there'd be no Meatloaf. Bernie
  8. Goodbye

    Love this.
  9. All EC songs on soundtracks...

    Wow! Really cool to hear something new even after so many years! Great discovery, Lew! Great find, LC! Bernie
  10. Similar Themes

    I always thought these two songs had a common bond. Are there any others?
  11. Billboard’s Top #2 records of all time...

    In those days, record companies routinely "made" hit records but throwing money at them. I guess Arista came up short on ABM. Bernie
  12. Details after the official announcement. Bernie
  13. Billy Sullivan "Go All The Way"

    Soooooo good. Quite an original idea! And Billy can play! Wow!
  14. In Hindsight: Raspberries' Fresh (1972)

    "If You Change Your Mind" is a solid A+. In fact, I'd give it an A+++. One of Eric's best vocals! And the chord progression is astonishing! Bernie
  15. GATW zoom call

    Ouch. Some of the chords sound sooooo wrong. Bernie
  16. How many have you heard?

    A great project for producer extraordinaire Tommy Allen!
  17. Heads Up: New Eric Carmen Interview Coming...

    Eric will be a guest on the Sirius XM show “The Diner with Lou Simon” next Friday, April 16th at 7pm EST, channel 106.
  18. How many have you heard?

    "I Need Your Lovin'" was a Cyrus Erie original written by Eric. It was covered by Freeport in 1970. Their version is very close to the studio demo done by Cyrus Erie. Bernie
  19. Get The Message cover

  20. EC with EJ...

    Elton was thinking, "In a few years, I'll buy my own mop of hair."
  21. Shameless

    Cool. I stopped watching "Shameless" a few years ago after being addicted to it since its start. The storylines started going haywire (even by "Shameless" standards), and once Emmy Rossum left... well... Bernie
  22. 3 Million Hits!

    Ad guy doin' his thing!
  23. 3 Million Hits!

    Guys! We're just 20,000 hits away from 3 MILLION! Guess I'll need a prize. Hmmm...until then, here's a retrospective of the past milestones from the EricCarmen.com vault! Bernie 1996: 2008:
