  1. Straight Time lyric sheet

    I think I've heard 6 out of the 11. I was thinking I heard Quiet Train too somehow, but I'm not sure.
  2. Raspberries - Pop Art Live

    One of the first things I did was rip this Cd so I can put the tracks in the original order. With the help of Audacity and some editing, I blended things together pretty well for my listening pleasure.
  3. Raspberries - Pop Art Live

    Am I correct in saying that the order of songs has been changed a bit? I'm pretty sure Overnight Sensation was played much later in the concert.
  4. Raspberries - Pop Art Live

    It's in my hand. Soon to be in my Cd player.
  5. Raspberries - Pop Art Live

    So, I pre-order the CD but stores get it first AND it's cheaper? If I wasn't so excited about getting the CD, I'd be peeved.
  6. Raspberries - Pop Art Live

    Was watching a Foreigner concert on AXS TV a few hours ago, and a commercial comes on advertising the upcoming release of Pop Art Live - Raspberries. Cool!
  7. Glen Campbell Dead Age 81

    Along with James Burton, Glen Campbell has always been one of my favorite yesteryear guitarists. Pretty outstanding voice too.
  8. All By Myself Royalties

    I thought so too, but also couldn't find it. BTW, a good article I found on ABM. http://www.mixonline.com/news/classic-tracks/classic-tracks-all-myself-eric-carmen/428019
  9. All By Myself Royalties

    Out of curiosity, is there anywhere that shows how much Eric has made in royalties JUST from All By Myself? I saw a list one time that had him listed among the top Single Song Royalty Makers. And I wonder how much he continues to make today on that one incredible hit.
  10. 20 Years of EricCarmen.com - Day 6

    Indeed a great version, though I might be in the minority in saying that I'm not too keen on the false ending.
  11. 20 Years of EricCarmen.com - Day 3

    Took off of work so I could get tickets online for this event. Minutes after they went on sale, all I could grab were two standing room only tickets, but I was glad I did. Wonderful night! Loved the interview and performances. Specifically remember Eric talking about Desperate Fools and how the record execs don't "have an artistic bone in there bodies".
  12. 20 Years of EricCarmen.com - Day 1

    This song has become a favorite of mine. So appreciative of the hard work that was put into this.
  13. So I was watching the Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony and I couldn't help but wonder..... IF our Raspberries ever got in, would they bury the hatchet one more time to perform at their induction? What do you think?
  14. Cassette Found!

    I must say that the fist time I heard My Heart Stops, I didn't care for it at all. It has grown on me a bit but still not one of my favorites. Even though they are technically unreleased, I like Boardwalk Baby & Never Say Die much better.
