  1. In Hindsight: Raspberries' Fresh (1972)

    Goosebumps from 2:36 on. If you don't get 'em, this website's not for you. Bernie
  2. 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:
  3. Jim Steinman dies at 73

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

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

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

    I always thought these two songs had a common bond. Are there any others?
  7. 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
  8. Details after the official announcement. Bernie
  9. Billy Sullivan "Go All The Way"

    Soooooo good. Quite an original idea! And Billy can play! Wow!
  10. 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
  11. GATW zoom call

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

    A great project for producer extraordinaire Tommy Allen!
  13. 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.
  14. 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

  16. EC with EJ...

    Elton was thinking, "In a few years, I'll buy my own mop of hair."
  17. 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
  18. 3 Million Hits!

    Ad guy doin' his thing!
  19. 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:
  20. EC with EJ...

    Eric told me that Elton would just play piano, sing his vocals and leave the rest to Gus. Eric wanted to handle it differently and Gus was not happy. Bernie
  21. EC with EJ...

    Gus Dudgeon Connection.
  22. Baseball...

    I'm surprised the title, "Baseball" hasn't drawn LC to this thread. Bernie
  23. Let's Pretend guitar cover

    Good for him! Bernie
  24. Best non Eric song?..

    Great work! Can’t image there are a lot of full Raspberries autographed pieces around.
