  1. Sounds great but we don't need that "Manilow style crooner" business! That's not EC.
  2. This is my least favorite Eric release. Eric seemed to be really be holding back his voice in many of the tunes --- compare this to his next release Tonight You're Mine and you will see what I mean --- Change of Heart had no power to it. That disco sound had to go!
  3. I agree Julia, that version of All By Myself was horrible.
  4. 1. Raspberries 2. Bryan Adams 3. Def Leppard
  5. lets have Eric produce for the Go-Go's. Eric's still got a ton of rockers left in him and those ladies would get the music across.
  6. Hopefully Eric stays clear of Clive. He did him no favors at Arista.
  7. Bernie, here's to the next 350,000. Thanks for all the hard work -- you are truly our Carmen Connection of the 2000's.
  8. I'd buy anything that Eric came out with but would prefer something along the lines of Tonight You're Mine or EC (1985 release)--- 12 rockers and 6 slower songs will keep me happy for now. Thanks Eric.
  9. The Babys were underrated -- they had some excellent stuff -- John Waite has also put out some good solo releases.
  10. Congrats Jim -- that post you made thanking everyone is even funnier than that Terrell Owens touchdown last Sunday --- any football fans on here will know what I mean.
  11. With all them gems Eric has in reserve I'm sure he could put out a great new release which could be sold on the net....call it "Songs from the Vault"...most who have heard some of these tunes on the board here seem to agree they sound great.
  12. Craig -- High Cost of Loving is a killer -- I've been lucky enough to hear Running Hot and Young Hearts which are also excellent. Eric's got enough stuff in reserve to release a double album.
  13. I got lucky to get my copy of the CD put out by BMG -- I am not a member but a friend of mine is -- he ordered 2 and got 2, sold one to me. Somewhere I had heard, when BMG had made this CD available, it was one per customer. Very shortly after sales were shut down.
  14. A few years ago Eric used to participate quite often on what I believe was a Raspberries/EC board (I think this was before Bernie's site went up). The story I got was that someone actually reported him to AOL for using the word "shi*ty" when explaining himself in one of his posts. I think they shut him down...however it was real cool to go into the board and read Eric's replys and his slant on things.
  15. Good point Steve about Top Down Summer -- having Jim drumming on there would be huge. What a great summer time single this could be.
  16. Well said Darlene -- I echo everything you said in that last post. Good job.
  17. Tony C -- I think I read where Devil and the Deep Blue Sea was a Carmen/Pitchford effort....pretty good in the same vein as Boats..don't know how it could ever be a single, it's about 7 or 8 minutes long, if I recall correctly.
  18. I Think I Found Myself -- Viagra Can you imagine Rafael Palmerio doing his viagra commercial with this as the theme song?
  19. Steveh -- going back to your post on page one -- songs that Eric sounds like Rod Stewart -- how about Take it or Leave It. I'll add one for you: song where Eric reminds me of Billy Joel -- It Hurt's Too Much. Released right around that Joel was hot as hell with the Stranger and 42nd Street.
  20. Least favorite Eric song for me is "Haven't We Come Along Way" from the Change of Heart album. This was also released as a single, I have the 45 but don't think it made it on the radio, around here anyway. Sounded too "disco" to me as did "End of the World" which kinda sound like the Bee Gees to me. Was real glad when Tonight You're Mine came out -- it was like night and day comparing this to Change of Heart.
  21. My favorite CD for this year thus far is "Spirit: Stallion of the Cimmaron". If you seen the movie and liked it, you will love the CD.
  22. Eric, a very happy birthday and best wishes for a great year to a true gentleman. Cheers!
  23. Bernie, many thanks for your hard work and dedication which goes into this site. For me this is the "Carmen Connection" of the 2000's. Thanks so much!
  24. I'd like to see Eric do a duet with Sarah McLachlan.
  25. Hey Lew see ya at a Ravens game some time. I know I won't be seeing you at the Mohegan Sun show this Saturday. Eric is not going to be there and neither will I.
