Limited Edition AAA Pressing

180-gram LP plated and pressed at RTI

Released in 1972, the Raspberries' debut album provided the blueprint for every great power-pop album that followed it. Featuring "Go All The Way," the band's first gold record and million-selling single, the album remains the greatest testament to the band's songwriting and playing talents. Analog Spark is proud to reissue this album for the first time on 180-gram vinyl, pressed and plated at RTI to ensure an audiophile listening experience. This is the definitive pressing of this lost classic.
Bruce Springsteen - "Great underrated power pop masters. Their best records are as fun and sound as fresh today as when they were released. Soaring choruses, Beach Boys harmonies over crunchy Who guitars."
Allmusic - **** "More than a few bands have spent their entire careers trying to achieve the pure pop perfection of "Go All the Way" by the Raspberries -- and that was just the first three minutes and 22 seconds of the Raspberries' first album."
Rolling Stone - "Raspberries opens with the finest burst of lightweight English rock I’ve heard all year, a raunchy 16-bar guitar intro, and followed by a verse that sounds like a cross between “Reflections Of My Mind” and early Badfinger. The rest of the album is just as ephemeral, and just as good."
