Live CD

Recommended Posts

While we're in dream mode:

Raspberries, off the success of their forthcoming LIVE CD/DVD springboard into the studio for a double length album complete with not only new songs but remakes of the 'Cream of the Crop'... including Scott on some of the songs!

Off that triple platinum effort, the five guys each offer a solo CD a la the KISS set during their heyday... Eric... Wally (with Ducks or Jesse?)... Dave... and Jim (with Boxer?)... Scott... The Overdubs can be the house band for each act...

And why not being released on the "rumored" Eric Carmen Records?

Puh-leeze... nobody wake me up until it happens!

I just know that if you've loved something for 30-someodd years then you're still going to love it now! Some things just simply remain the same --- good music speaks to your soul. I'm sure it'll be great because it's where our hearts lie and it's a part of us.

Ok I'm trying very hard to be patient but :angry: aaarrrgh!! - no new posts on the live CD for 18 days now! Eric, are there any new morsels you can give us? I know Bernie previously said that as well as being recorded for audio, the gigs were filmed as well. Are you planning a DVD release as well as a CD? Do you have similar plans for a release following your October solo show?

By the way, can I just say it's mega that you decided to become "active" on the board - your posts are the icing on our Raspberry delight!

Yours hopefully

Gary

All together now... WE WANT INFO. WE WANT INFO. WE WANT INFO... ad nauseum...

:lol:

Actually I can remember when we could measure information on upcoming releases in years and not days or weeks... so it's all in perspecive...

Of course I too would love the next morsel... :P

So either it's some concert and/or rehearsal video footage from the boys...OR...It's that long lost Darlene Brandt instructional video, where she spends an hour showing you how to properly tune your cello. :cool:

Hey, If she's showing some cleavage, I'll watch it!

DVD would be great. It would be nice if they included the pre show interviews with the fans at the first reunion show in Cleveland.

I think the interviews would be interesting but I looked like hell when they interviewed me. I had just driven all the way from Minnesota and had no hotel or anything. I'm sure I looked like a homeless EC fan.

CD and DVD? What about vinyl and 8-track? And I've got an old turntable with a 78 rpm setting. Think out of the raspberry crate on this one, folks.

Now, what they COULD do regarding the 78 rpm......in '68, on Moby Grape's "Wow", the last cut on the first LP (it was a double album, the second disk being a couple of long songs/jams), was cut in 78 rpm - "Just Like Gene Autry: A Fox-Trot", introduced by Arthur Godfrey, and sung by (what turned out to be) an increasingly insane Skip Spence through a megaphone. (He was admitted to Bellevue shortly after recording that LP, after mistaking drummer Don Stevenson for a demon, and attacking him with an axe.)

At the end of the next-to-last cut, the listener was instructed to change his/her turntable speed to 78 for "Fox-Trot".

When asked years later about why this tune was done this way, Spence replied - "It seemed like a good idea at the time!" When Peter Lewis was questioned about it, he said - "Hey, it was Skippy...that wasn't that abnormal for him!"

Now...admittedly, while they couldn't change speeds on a CD like on vinyl, they could certainly put on a scratchy-sounding song that sounds like an old 78........
