Conditions to become Standard is “beauty of melody”, ...
that can be UNIVERSAL.
I feel ”UNIVERSAL” on Eric Carmen’s music
as same as Paul McCartney or Stevie Wonder.

by Shinji Harada (The Nikkei 2015.08.26)

普遍的なメロディーの美しさこそがスタンダードになるうる条件だと思うんですが、
彼(エリック)の曲からはポールやスティーヴィーにも共通する普遍性を感じます。

“40th Anniversary CD Collection is just what we wanted!
Thank you very much Mr.Carmen and all the members of the project from Sony, Legacy Recordings.
I’m so excited when I got to know about the bonus tracks! Especially Live at Budokan and Nakano Sunplaza!!!!
I have been wanted to hear the rare records.


I have been a big fan of Eric’s since the first time I heard the Raspberries records when I was high school. 
Eric Carmen is one of the best Rock 'n' roll artists.
He could sing perfect ‘delicate ballad’ as well as ‘incredible shout’, anything and everything!!!
I’m much inspired by him and still respect him.
I’m expecting Japan Live and new album!!!"

「今回の40周年記念のリリースは僕達にとってなによりのプレゼントです。
エリックさん、ソニーの皆さんありがとうございました。
中野サンプラザ公演に武道館公演!特にボーナストラックの充実ぶりが嬉しいですね。
ラズベリーズ時代からのビッグファンで、繊細なバラードから激しいシャウトまで、ロックアーティストとして完璧な方。
僕は大いに影響を受け、今も同時代に生きられる喜びでいっぱいです。
盛り上がって来日公演が実現しないかなと思います。そして新作も期待しています。
エリックさん、体に気をつけて頑張って下さい。いつも応援しています!」―――伊豆田洋之

“Eric Carmen is one of my favorite artists since The Raspberries. They are still stunning.
I think The Raspberries would be one the best band which came out after The Beatles. Perfect sound, brilliant songs….those masterpieces were written by Eric Carmen!!!
His talent as a song writer is worthy of high praise, he could write brilliant songs one after another which have both Pops and Rock essence. Especially his beautiful melody line is amazing! I believe his music should have much evaluated!”

   by Shogo Hamada

‘ROCK SHOW’ 1980 Spring (Japanese Music Magazine)
All Phots by Hideo Kojima / Rock Show

Eric and Shogo met at Nakano Sun-plaza(Tokyo, Japan) after his Japan Live on Feb.7 /1980 . They talked about Japan Live, song-writing or something. He mentioned about The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Small Faces, The Cars…. on this talk session.

It is said that the song titled “Rojiura no Shonen” written by Shogo Hamada was inspired with the Riff that Eric Carmen wrote.

Will you guess which song that Shogo Hamada was inspired?

エリック・カルメンは僕の好きなアーティストのひとり、しかも、以前在籍していたラズベリーズ時代からのファンです。あのグループは、ビートルズ以後に出来たグループの中では最高でしょうね。サウンドも申し分なかったし、曲もすばらしいものばかり。それらの曲を作っていたのが、エリック・カルメンなんですからね。エリックというと、曲作りに注目します。ポップスとロックのエッセンスをすべて持ち合わせた曲を次々と作り出す才能には、最高の賛辞を送ります」
    浜田省吾(‘ROCK SHOW’ 1980年春号より)

浜田省吾の『路地裏の少年』は、エリックの書いたある曲のリフに着想を得て書かれたものと言われている。その曲とは、さて、何でしょう???

The Reflections of Eric Carmen in Japanese artists  #4

The style of Eric Carmen’s melody-writings is so melodious

and most of them were tinged with mellow and melancholy.

I can always feel taste of autumn with ‘Never Gonna Fallin Love Again’ .

I reminds of Eric Carmen, he appeared on my radio show as a guest artist almost 35 years ago(1979)

I sang NGFLA while remembering him after a long absence.

I felt closeness to Eric and I again, we are singer song-writer and piano man.

And I am filled with deep emotion. How Eric inspired me as a melody maker!!!” 
 

久しぶりに唄うエリック・カルメンの“Never gonna fallin love again”も

エリック・カルメン独特の哀愁のあるメロディが、秋の味わい深さを語っているようだ。

30年前に僕のFM番組に出演してくれた、エリックの事を久しぶりに思い出しながら、

改めて、ピアノを弾くシンガー・アンド・ソング・ライターとしての僕たちの距離の近さを感じたし、

彼のようなメロディーメイカーが、自分に力を与えてくれたのだとしみじみ思ったりもした。

I couldn’t find his NGFLA….
