The Raspberries: Raspberries

Album Notes

When it comes to power-pop, few records have had as towering an influence as the first Raspberries album. With the opening track, "Go All The Way," Eric Carmen and the boys set the blueprint for generations to follow: crunchy Who-volume guitar chords and pure rock attitude, matched with ear-candy melodies and Beach Boys-worthy harmony vocals. On other songs, the Raspberries explored the many moods of Beatles-worship, their knack for catchy arrangements and pure pop songwriting often matching that of the Liverpudlian lads themselves. Far from a Fab Four tribute record, however, THE RASPBERRIES has a tough edge that clearly reveals that, though the Ohio group may have spent its days absorbing British Invasion sides, it was operating at a time when Led Zeppelin, not Lulu, ruled the rock world.
