The Raspberries, from Cleveland (Ohio), were invented as the vehicle for
vocalist and poster-boy Eric Carmen, but their melodic rock and roll was
the prototype for all future power-pop.
The Raspberries (Capitol, 1972), featuring their hit
Go All The Way, and Fresh (1972) were highly
derivative of the Beatles and the Beach Boys.
An evolving line-up recorded Side 3 (1973), that contains stronger
(or at least more virulent) tracks such as Tonight and Ecstasy,
and the concept album
Starting Over (1974), whose more complex songs sounded like self-analyses
Carmen's solo career had only one highlight, All By Myself (1976), one
of the most famous (and tedious) romantic ballads of all time.
Greatest (Capitol, 2005) is an anthology.
