  1. Haha. You dislike Marathon Man so much that you put it on your list TWICE?!? I love that song! You're gonna have to come up with another to fill the void. My list is filled with additional tunes to skip when playing an Eric Carmen "Marathon." Plenty to choose from. 😜
  2. I'll play. 1. On Broadway 2. Baby I Need Your Lovin' 3. Lost In The Shuffle 4. You Need Some Lovin' 5. American As Apple Pie 6. Come Back To My Love 7. You Took Me All The Way 8. Isn't It Romantic 9. Reason To Try 10. Spotlight
  3. Hmmm. Perhaps the performance was NOT broadcast. No mention of that in this article about the event from Record World.
  4. This show was broadcast on WNEW-FM in New York City and I've never heard of an exiting tape. I have the long interview Dennis Elsas did with Eric two days before where he played cuts from Eric's new album. But no live show. Surely, someone recorded the show as Peter Frampton was the headliner. My guess is that it "The Wanderer" was in actuality another "oldie" that the setlist maker mis-remembered. "Locomotion"/"Be My Baby" would be my best guess. But I'd love to find a live recording. Eric Carmen Band Peter Frampton Avery Fisher Hall, NYC, December 17, 1975 WNEW FM Benefit Concert for Cerebral Palsy
  5. Hmmm. Can that be true? This is the setlist they have for that show: Eric Carmen Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center, New York, NY, USA DEC 17 1975 Setlist Sunrise Starting Over (Raspberries) Overnight Sensation (Raspberries) Slow Down On Broadway That's Rock 'n' Roll Go All the Way (Raspberries) Encore The Wanderer (Dion cover) Maybe My Baby
  6. Their Top 10 is pretty solid, but I'll admit to not getting Lenny Bruce. Isn't he more of a satirist than a comedian?
  7. I search for the attribution for that joke but couldn't find any. But I did find this one from Emo Phillips that's in the same vein. - - - - I discovered my wife in bed with another man, and I was crushed. So I said, "Get off me, you two!" 😆
  8. Read this today and had a laugh. Maybe you will, too. - - - - I broke up with a girl once because she was having hallucinations. She said, "Tom, I...can't see you anymore." That was weird. I was like, "Babe, I'm standing right here." Then she said "No, you don't understand...I'm seeing someone else." Which was really bizarre because it was just the two of us in the room. I had to break it off after that. 😆
  9. Always great to see Eric's big solo blockbuster get attention!
  10. Good stuff with some new info. And thanks for the shout-out, Jim.
  11. 2007...a million years ago, technologically speaking!
  12. I think you're onto something, Matt. Eric has talked about being inspired by the Grass Roots. Since Eric just borrows snippets from here and there, finding moments like this are a near impossible task. Nice detective work. PS: Eric did a pretty great cover of "Where Were You When I Needed You" when he was in Cyrus Erie. That song was also on Grass Root's "Let's Live For Today" album!
  13. I remember watching Mark back in the day. He had a political satire show where he sat at the piano and sang songs...sort of like a modern-day Stan Freberg. RIP.
  14. Wow. Miss a few days on the website and miss Wendy's return! Love you lots.
  15. I was a BIG fan of Al Jaffee. If you didn't know, he created the "fold out" that appeared in just about every issue of MAD magazine in the 1960's and beyond.
  16. Kirk! So great that you saw Bob Hope tape a show!
  17. Wonder if Eric and the band were involved in the mono mixes like the Beatles? I would imagine they’d be more invested in the stereo mixes, since it was the ‘70s. Maybe a question for Eric.
  18. What an incredible post! From the glory days at EC.com — just think about the access! Wow! I mean, WOW!!!
  19. Wow, another great and thoughtfully written thread, LC. And I also appreciate RCT’s insight. For me, the choice can only be a tie. I love them both too much to choose.
