-- Phil Maq / WHFR-FM

#32 Album of 2018

"'Boomer, Jenna & Lennie' is a classic, ever-so-catchy Eric Carmen-styled number about negotiating life’s path and the ups and downs that are presented along the way. Light, percussive piano, electric guitar stabs and a sumptuous melody propel this song to the top of the pops.""

CD Single (5 Tracks) 

This 6-song CD with jewel case & shrinkwrap includes the single "Champion" from Dave's album, "Cardboard Vegas Roundabout," plus 4 bonus tracks of alternate mixes from the album, plus an early mix of "Listen to This," from Dave's "Buddha Pesto Manifesto" album. The cover art is a playful recreation of the Beach Boys' "Pet Sounds" classic album cover.


"Highly tuneful.  Like eating frosting straight from the jar.  Splattered throughout the song are Beach-Boys harmonies – even the “ba, ba ba ba” that the Beach Boys were known for and a high-pitched “wooo” that would make Brian Wilson swoon.  Caruso has a knack for melody and harmony."
Peter Lee / Hooks & Harmony

Cardboard Vegas Roundabout (2014)

2-CD Deluxe Edition (22 Tracks)

#6 Best Albums of 2014
#7 Best Songs of 2014
"The Art of Erica"
-- Pop That Goes Crunch

Dave's second solo effort is a self-produced tour de force of sparkling sunshine pop, jangly power pop and soulful ballads about identity, loss, home, friendship, hope, and the perils of social media.  It's served up in a stylish, gatefold digipak with 10 songs on disc one, plus 12 alternate versions, bonus mixes & demos) on disc two, plus a 12-page booklet with song lyrics, color photos, musician and song credits, liner notes, and a song title search game.


"Ten finely crafted tunes.  Caruso lays down some of the most complex vocal arrangements of the year, and succeeds over and over again.  Tasty songcraft."
-- Jeffrey Raskin / Host, The Big Show & Program Dir., Pop That Goes Crunch

Parker Revisited

CD Album (6 Tracks) 

Dave's celebrated, debut solo album, revisited in 2020 with remixed and remastered tracks, plus a bonus mix of "Letter to My Ex."  Includes updated artwork and jewel case.


"...Sunny, chiming guitar melodies that are instantly catchy and accessible. The song craft is top notch, a perfect example is the Elvis Costello sounding title track “Elizabeth Parker”. The next gem is “I Can’t Be On Time,” a finely tuned slice of 80’s styled power pop.  An excellent addition to your music collection."
Aaron Kupferberg / Powerpopaholic

CARUSO: In the Face (1987)

Rare, Original-Seal, Vintage Vinyl Album (5 Tracks)

Four original songs by Dave Caruso, plus a short, bonus, a capella cover track.  Featuring the single, "London."  Originally released by the CARUSO band in 1987, limited quantities are available for this collectors item.  Get one while they last.

"Caruso has all the makings of a great pop band... The beat on 'London,' the first number on the disc and the one which has received the most air play on radio, is a fast-paced, enjoyable morsel of pop music.  It's accented with a gashing guitar and vibrant vocals...  'Young and Tender' is the strongest song on the EP... Musically, the Carusos have their house in order." 
-- The Detroit Free Press
