Eric Carmen is the debut album by American rock and roll musician and singer-songwriter Eric Carmen. It is also his first of two self-titled albums, the other released in 1984. It peaked at #21 on the Billboard album chart on its release in 1975 and generated the #2 pop single "All by Myself" in the same year. The song reached #1 on the Cashbox and Record World charts. The album also included two follow-up Top 40 hits, "Never Gonna Fall in Love Again" (#11), and "Sunrise" (#34), both of which charted in 1976.
All tracks were written by Eric Carmen except the Drifters' song "On Broadway", which was written by Barry Mann, Cynthia Weil, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. This LP also contained Carmen's original version of "That's Rock and Roll", which became a #3 hit for Shaun Cassidy in 1977.
The album was Carmen's first solo production after leaving the Raspberries, a Power Pop group which scored several Top 40 hits in the early 1970s.
