But in a good way! (lol)
What a nice birthday surprise to be able to feature one of the great early '70's pop power bands.
The Raspberries came along at the perfect time for me ... the pop charts needed a little shaking up ... and between these guys and Badfinger, they gave us a healthy dose of what The Beatles might have sounded like had they first started charting in 1972 instead of 1962. Their music was super-charged with a strong dosage of '60's pop style ... and yet The Raspberries hailed from Cleveland of all places! (lol)
[I actually had the chance to see a double bill of The Raspberries and Badfinger, performing together at The Rockford Armory in 1972 ... man, what a show.]
Take it away, Phil! (kk)
