A Great Accomplishment

Recommended Posts

...is this website and its longevity. 

What you, Raspbernie,  have done to preserve, and make available to the world, Eric Carmen's music and all the information surrounding it ..is a big accomplishment and one that we probably take too much for granted.  Just imagine if this site had never been created?

So every once in a while (or more often) we should thank you for your work and investment that you have put into this.  It's very much appreciated.

So thank you Bernie.

How cool is that.  I didn't join till 2004 and had never seen those first posts.  Don Krider's was especially neat.  Marvin was there as was JuliaD.  "Winter Dreams" was on deck with "Cartoon World" the first single to be released in Japan. The site had just received its 1000th visitor.  

Great stuff.

P:S.  I think "Cartoon World" is so great...up there with Eric Carmen's best.

I have to agree. After purchasing The Essential Eric Carmen and hearing what I have been missing in regards to Eric's solo work, I have been on a mission to get the rest of his catalog. I recently bought the "I Was Born To Love You" CD (The US version of "Winter Dreams"?). Wow! "Cartoon World" & "(I Wanna Take) Forever Tonight" are great. The rest of the songs are pretty good too, especially the cover of "Walk Away Renee". Along with the Geffen Solo, I don't skip over any of the songs on either. I do have to press repeat a lot for "Cartoon World", "(I Wanna Take) Forever Tonight", "She Remembered", & "The Way We Used To Be" though.   Where the hell have I been all these years? Oh Yeah. Listening to Boston. ;)

On a side note - Does anyone know why the fade out on "(I Wanna Take) Forever Tonight" starts at around the 3:40 mark? The song has another 40 seconds or so to go. Just curious.
