Long Forgotten Eric Song...


Dale

Recommended Posts

I got in one of those moods when I decided to dig out some of my old...... old LP's (Like big black CD's) LOL. Well I was playing one of my favorite by a local band and found a song on it credited to Eric. "I need your Lovin" Recorded by Freeport .... " Freeport Express" I had forgotten he wrote it. Good song.

Darlene .......... Yep that would be me...Thanks it's nice to be back.

Raspbernie. The album is by Freeport Express. They were another Cleveland group that got pretty big back then ( Craig Holt, Kevin Raleigh, Roger Lewis, Dennis Stredney, Bill Stalling. This album came out about the same time Raspberries was formed. On the album it says the song was written by Eric Carmen and get this....... The song was published by Magic

Raspberries Music Company.

Kevin Raleigh went on to form the band Dynamite with Jim Bonfanti & Dave Smalley in their post Raspberries days.  To the best of my knowledge, the album they cut was never released.

Kevin was also in Jim's band, Pictures.

Kevin is probably best known for his work with the late Michael Stanley in the Michael Stanley Band.

The MSB's best known record features Kevin on vocals.

I’m pretty sure I had a cassette tape of that unreleased Dynamite album. Will see if I can dig it up!

Dunno who Tommy Allen is but I second this emotion!! Would LOVE to hear the rest of this!!

Tommy Allen did the labor-of-love recording or maybe the mixdown on the Pop Art Live recording released of the Raspberries reunion performance, so the audio could be released to the public! ❤️.(I'm sure Rasp-Bernie will chime in with exact details about Tommy Allen's contribution to that project - and it was HUGE!) If you don't own Pop Art Live, you owe it to yourself to track it down and buy it! I love that I could download Pop Art Live via Apple iTunes and take it with me wherever I go, including my car which is playback for dummies via the Apple CarPlay system that wires directly to my iPhone! ❤️

Thanks for the info, Helen!! I have Pop Art Live but I haven't played it in quite a while. Now I have a reason to dig it out again!!

I do know that the "Bonus Tracks" (a.k.a. the tracks otherwise available only on the vinyl release) are on Spotify (and I've listened to 'em plenty) are they also available on iTunes?
