  1. Wonderful news! Do enjoy the Amish visit --I hope that is a real treat for you both!
  2. Happy Birthday, Eric! Wishing you all the best in the upcoming year, and one full of love, happiness, good health, and new adventures.
  3. Great and thorough review. My favorite blurb: "...The Essential serves up rarities in the form of two previously unreleased selections from New York's fabled Bottom Line. Carmen revived The Raspberries' "Starting Over," and his intimate performance brought his sophisticated songcraft to the fore. The live version of Eric Carmen track "That's Rock 'n' Roll" is looser and more boisterous, and both tracks make a case that the entire concert should be issued imminently." Hear, hear.
  4. Professor Carmen would add tremendous value to a musical education. Practitioners bring a unique dimension to the educational experience that academics can't provide. Heck, I would love to have him in a visiting scholar role at my school, but I realize that business students won't latch onto it unless it directly relates. Their loss. He would be so great at teaching them how to think critically, and not to blindly accept what is in front of them, but to think of alternative hypotheses. He's a great storyteller - he'd be a natural.
  5. Congratulations, Bernie!! Glad to see your exceptional and varied talents are recognized!
  6. I apologize for being late to the congratulatory praises. I was in the UK for Christmas, and that was "Christmas" enough and was not expecting any presents. Any surprises. Any thing. And, much to my delight I was wrong. Thank you for a wonderful song, the background story so well told, and for bringing the surprise and joy to a windy Christmas day. I was grinning from ear to ear like a 9 year old. And it felt wonderful!!
  7. Wonderful news, Diane! No one deserves it more than you. Here's to a glorious 2014!!!
  8. Happy Birthday, Eric! I hope you have a joyous day, and wish you all the best in the upcoming year --may it be glorious! As always, thank you ever so much for sharing your many talents with us --they make all our single days very special. Anne
  9. I didn't hesitate to buy Dave's CD. You might find it a bit more mellow than anticipated, but it is a winner. I heartily agree with Tim on the Boxer CD --wonderful!
  10. Glad to hear that this project is progressing so well, and exceeding all expectations! I'm eagerly awaiting the release. Congratulations, Eric!!
  11. Ill Met By Moonlight - W. Stanley Moss. Always a good book to revisit every few years.
  12. Hey DianeD!! I owe you a call! Perhaps the software training will come to good use in the job search. It's another skill you can chat about.
  13. Has anyone heard of Gregg Latterman, the founder of Aware records (John Mayer was listed with Aware)? He's giving a talk next week about his experience in the music industry starting and building a record label and artist management company. I think it will be worthwhile, but thought I'd check here first to see if any had insights, or any burning questions to be answered.
  14. Very nice! Thanks for sharing, Billy!
  15. Congratulations, Lew! Wonderful news!!!
  16. This duo recently released a refreshing EP (they label themselves as 'acoustic pop', but they often seem classical-bluesy-pop, at least to me). Their lyrics are such a fresh breath of air. The EP is worthwhile, but it's their recent recording that has me hooked. I know one of the duo. They wrote the following for a family they know whose child was killed at Newtown. They sang it at her funeral, and I can well imagine how emotional that was. It is the most beautiful song I have heard in a long time. Below is the link to the song. If you've lost a loved one recently, I hope this gives you comfort. :Light My Sky
  17. Darn. Says content is blocked in my country.
  18. Thinking about it. Just did a quick ticket search and better seat was available in NYC than Boston. Not sure I could do a Monday night in NYC, though.
  19. LC, are you going to the Boston show?
  20. For those on the board whose children are going through the college admission process, read the fascinating article below. I'm sure everyone will appreciate the creativity. Sure as heck seems like a very good way to get into college. Enjoy!! Indiana Jones Goes to College
  21. Oh boy!!!! Thank you, Bernie!
  22. Good to hear you're hanging in there with this, DianeD! My part of NH only had rain and wind. This was very fortunate considering how badly hit the towns around us were with Irene. One of the bridges is still out from Irene. My mother lives in NYC, but grew up in Florida, so she just chuckled that I called her to make sure she was ok. "I know what to do" said she. There's a rumor of a nor'easter next week...hopefully this bypasses the NY/CT area. They've had enough.
  23. Marvin first introduced me to Kyle's music. Been a fan ever since. Wonderful music, beautiful melodies, sensible lyrics (and a few witty ones...guy can't help it, he's naturally witty), and an all around great person. What's not to like? Thank you, again, Marvin.
  24. I have been fortunate to attend several of Kyle’s house shows, and to be at the recent NJ show. I encourage all to browse around his website, listen to several tunes, order a CD or two, and try your best to get to a live show. He never disappoints. The man is very talented, is passionate about his music, and is an engaging and warm person with a wicked sense of humor. Give his music a listen, and very soon his tunes will be in constant rotation. You can’t go wrong with him.
