The Essential Eric Carmen goes on sale March 25th.  The career-spaning collection from Sony's Arista/Legacy label covers The Raspberries through his solo hits of the 70s and 80s.

Hits include The Raspberries' "Go All The Way" and Carmen's solo classics "All By Myself," "Never Gonna Fall In Love Again" and 80s gems "Hungry Eyes" and "Make Me Lose Control."  It'll also go deeper with early, relatively unknown hits from the late 60s and early 70s. 

Capping the collection is a new song "Brand New Year," which evokes many of the power pop/surf sound stylings that first gained attention for The Raspberries.
