Eric Carmen fans hungry for new music might find themselves somewhat satiated by not one, but two, new CD releases coming this fall. While techincally not "new music," there are certainly recordings here that most fans have never heard, including unreleased demos that span Eric's career. Those unreleased songs (along with digitally remastered tracks from old favorites) will make these two CDs "Must Haves" for every Eric Carmen fan and collector.
