The Raspberries: Fresh (Capitol)

Greg Shaw, Phonograph Record, July 1972

I ALWAYS HELD that the next revitalization of pop music would be heralded by a resurgence of interest in the mid-'60's, but I couldn't have imagined a year ago that things would come so far so fast. The old songs are not being reworked as much as I'd hoped (yet), but stylistically it might as well be 1965 as far as a large and growing number of groups are concerned.
