What EC fans listen to?

All I do listen to is Eric Carmen and "The Raspberries". I guess I'm just stuck into the seventies. Oh, Led Zeppelin, too! The music of today, in my opinion is just a cluster of white/black ubangi native music mixed in with high-pitched, screaming screetchy voices, which to me is no talent whatsoever.

To Blackhawk Pat-- Do you have Rock n' Roll Roots Vol. 4? Well, once again no Raspberries but at least we tried. A few weeks ago Stroud was at Borders for the CD release. Did you stop by there? When he saw me he said "No Raspberries" I said that's ok maybe next time.I was really excited to see that a song I have requested since Vol 1 made it on this CD. It is REFLECTIONS OF MY LIFE by Marmalade. Well we will wait for Vol 5, and try again

I also have Rhino "Didn't It Blow Your Mind: Soul Hits Of The 70's" Volumes 1-15. I do not have Volumes 16-20 though. Rhino did release "Radio Daze: Pop Hits Of The 80's" Volumes 1-5 but those CD's are no longer made & out of print. If your hungry for more, check out Barry Scott Presents The Lost 45's Of The 70's & 80's Volumes: 1 & 2 on Varese Sarabande. Also worth having is Bubblegum Classics Volumes: 1-3 also on Varese Sarabarde.

The only new work from any artist that I've purchased recently is Christine Lavin.

My grandchildren keep my car radio tuned to Disney Radio (somewhere on the AM dial in every town in America) and some of that stuff isn't half bad! On the other hand, the rest of it will make your ears bleed. But, like Ellece, I really enjoy Pink, 'NSync and The Backstreet Boys won't kill you, and Christina Aguilera shows the potential to mature into a powerful singer with great emotional depth.

I took my grandddaughter to her first live show a few weeks ago. It was 'Lil Bow Wow....A Rapper...For $40.00 a ticket! :::sigh::: But afterwards she told me that I was "the bestest MomMom in the whole world!" So, it looks like Disney Radio is gonna be my music for along time to come.

Trust Rhino to put out the best compilation Box Sets around. Their packaging and liner notes are second to none. I have their "Beg, Scream & Shout - the Big Ole Box of '60's Soul", "Can You Dig It - the 1970's Soul Experience", "Have A Nice Decade - the 1970's Pop Culture Box", and a slew of the "Didn't It Blow Your Mind" and "Doo Wop Ballads/Uptempo" series. All highly recommended for those who want variety to their music collections.

Regards,

MARVIN

Hi Matt! Thanks for all the suggestions! I have one CD of the Radio Daze Hits of the 80s and always search the bins for the rest of that series and wondered why I couldn't find them. Did you know that Barry Scott used to be a VJ for a local video music station here in Massachusetts (Framingham) before he became nationally known. The station didn't last long but it was really fun while we had it along with MTV and VH1. It was 1984-85. He also wrote a book that I own of all the teen idol music-very interesting.

I agree with Marvin on the Rhino compilations-it's so much fun to hear of what became of the one hit wonders...

Hey Lydia! Nothing wrong with some current so called "teen" music --I like some of the N'Sync, Backstreet Boys, Christina Aquilera songs. You do sound like a cool MomMom!!!

One thing I have noticed on this board is that there are a lot of people who have wide tastes in music. I have always considered myself to have one of the most diversified music appetites of anyone I have ever met. It is unusual to meet someone like this. On this board however, it is not unusual. It seems to me that fans of Eric are truly appreciative of good music, and don't discriminate against it whether it is country, rock, pop, or classical. I think it's because we seem to focus more on the harmony and arrangemnet of a piece, rather than it's beat or social status.
