    My two daughters; visiting my family; writing and editing; photography and photographs; day-trip drives; baseball and football; playing golf (when I can find time); and antiques and collectibles, because they relate to my work. And... I love all kinds of music: Beatles, McCartney, Lennon, Harrison, Raspberries/Eric Carmen, Fleetwood Mac, John Stewart, Billy Joel, U2, Springsteen, 10,000 Maniacs, Buddy Guy, Johnny Cash, Rosanne Cash, and classical and baroque masters, especially J.S. Bach and Vivaldi.

  1. Happy Father's Day

    Me too. It's appreciated even if the responses don't show it!
  2. PS: Here's the Omnivore announcement of its release of the CD: https://omnivorerecordings.com/shop/the-choir-artifact-the-unreleased-album/ And if you don't know the record, sample each song at Amazon and you'll get a nice taste of that great late-'60s sound (and its palpable British Invasion influence): https://www.amazon.com/Artifact-Unreleased-Album-Choir/dp/B077ZK3XLV Who knows the story behind the song "For Eric"?
  3. Hey, good stuff! Great to see Wally wielding that axe again... and it's so cool that the Choir is playing an album they recorded 50 (!) years ago! Is the Choir playing anything beyond Artifact, or just the album proper? Thanks for checking in!
  4. Matthew, the maximum size for images here is 0.02 MB, so... I'll have to input the text on that ad. Coming soon....
  5. I remember getting a copy of this print ad out of Billboard when I was in college: I thought it was a very high-impact plug from a company (Arista) that didn't always lavishly promote Eric's work. Like?
  6. Ohio earthquake

    The two theme songs for this thread are linked below:
  7. Ohio earthquake

    Cleveland Rocks?
  8. At The Record Plant

    Ever wonder what Bernie's first "Rare Photo of the Week" was? Well, now you know... almost 11 years after the fact. Where'd everybody go?
  9. ELO "Don't Bring Me Down" story

    This is great—I never knew that Jeff Lynne gave in to popular misconception and made "grusse" into "Bruce." I always thought he was saying "gross" anyway!
  10. WAB-The True Story

    A Lew Bundles classic (even if he ignored the presence of my two sweet daughters and me at WAB in '07). (Gosh, was that really 12 years ago?) Bernie, that was a kick-butt night! I don't know if I thanked you enough for that.... Best, LC
  11. Even in a Cello Solo

    This wonderful note from Darlene, posted back in May 2012, never got a comment... until now. I was snooping and saw the title, which caught my eye because I love the cello, and I noticed it had zero comments, so I gave it a click and I'm glad I did. Hey, all of you rock'n'rollers out there: Put down your air guitar for a minute and soak in this gorgeous piano-and-cello performance. It's not Darlene's performance, but it's a reasonable facsimile featuring Nadege Rochat (cello) and Malgorzata Garstka (piano). If you like sad and emotional music that will enrich your musical repertoire, check it out. And, thank you Darlene! (Better late...)
  12. Demo pick 'em

    Looking forward to Sweet Lew Bundles' review of "Cindy in the Wind." I have a feeling he'll dig it. Not everybody loves every demo or rarity or even album cut. But what's not to love about Cindy?
  13. Eric Carmen: Ballads

    The jig is up... there is no Eric cover of "Miracles" — though wouldn't that have been interesting? It's one of those sensual songs for which Eric became known. I just faked it, hoping to draw Elle out from the woodwork. Alas, it didn't work.
  14. Record World Ad

    Sweet Lew! This is awesome. I love stuff like this—old magazines with so much material that you just... dig in. Who knew that Bette Middler recorded Bob Dylan's "Buckets of Rain," with Bob adding vocals? Or that Paul Simon joined Willie Nelson on stage at a concert that week? Or that young Bonnie Raitt got a rave review for her single "Good Enough"? Also, there's a rave review of some guy named Bruce Springsteen and his then-new album Born to Run. Also, cool photos of John Lennon (doing an interview to support Shaved Fish... and to discuss newborn Sean Ono Lennon) and Hall & Oates (appearing at a wax museum opening), and Also... love the comment that Eric's first solo was "the Beach Boys album we've been waiting for." Good find....

    Lew, you have a future as a dietitian and training coach! I've got just the name for your business.... wait for it.... The Weight Lewser Good?
