Raspberries: Starting Over

Ron Ross, Phonograph Record, September 1974

IT'S A TEEN-CLUB midsummer Saturday night at Papa Joe'sParlour-pizza, pinball, pretzels, and pop-available without I.D. Raspberries, with no fewer than three Top Forty hits in less than two years, are rocking smooth as brushed steel for a buncha kidz who just won't dance, give it a chance, try a romance. You get the picture? Yes, we see. As the Buckinghams, pop pride of the Windy City, would've said, it's kind of a drag.
