The Raspberries: Fresh (Capitol)

Mark Shipper, Phonograph Record, December 1972

THEY'RE A monument to youthful exuberance, a triumph of pure adolescent joyousness over post-teen disillusionment, and maybe just the last straw it's gonna take to break the back of an obsolete and outdated culture whose mere presence has clotted up the environment for the past five years more than ten thousand Chevrolets ever could. They're the Raspberries, and their great new album, FRESH is here and the time has never been riper.
