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 (Overnight Sensation).

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.
