Album: Side 3
. . .
I hope that Doc doesn’t kick me out of the band for this confession, but I don’t think I’ve ever heard any of the Raspberries four studio albums as actual, you know, albums.
I mean, in 1981, I got their 1976 Raspberries Best compilation, and given how many great songs it collected and their rep as an Eric Carmen-driven singles band, I figured that I’d pretty much nailed it. In any event, the fact that the Raspberries put out their first album in 1972 and had enough killer singles for a fantastic best-of in 1976 — two years after their last album — says something about the early 1970s.
