This will be bittersweet- a new release, a great recording, but possibly the last hurrah- looking forward to hearing it!

So, they fixed  "Play On" (on their website), but now on disc 2 the last 4 songs are all numbered '11'...

Pre-ordered the CDs. I'm a vinyl guy, can't wait for the LP release. Hopefully the LP release will have posters and lyric sheets. Still have my original 1st LP with the sticker that still has the scent and songbook from Arrowhead Music in Mentor OH.

Was watching a Foreigner concert on AXS TV a few hours ago, and a commercial comes on advertising the upcoming release of Pop Art Live - Raspberries. Cool!

I was able to get my copy today at local independent  record store. Called and they said it was in!! The cd took me right back to the concert . I am so happy they released this first show. Enjoyed reading the liner notes especially Ken and Bernie's. It makes you realize what an impact this band made on so many people. Thank you Eric, Dave, Wally and Jim for giving us this gift!!

I purchased the CD's from Amoeba.com. $20.98 plus free shipping and no tax. Cheaper than Amazon after factoring in sales tax and possibly shipping, if you don't have a Prime account. I have bought things from Amoeba before and had no issues. Should be here tomorrow.

I also purchased/pre-ordered the LP's from SoundStageDirect.com. $54.99, however, using code LP20, I got 20% off. Unfortunately, you must spend at least $49.99 for free shipping. A good excuse for buying another Boston Third Stage LP! :-) I have bought a bunch of LP's from them. No issues with them either.

FYI - The 3 LP set has 30 songs and the 2 CD set has 28 songs. The 2 extra songs on the LP set are Drivin' Around/Cruisin Music & I Don't Know What I Want.

I remember when Live on Sunset Strip first came out I was so excited. One of my favorite songs is "Starting Over". It didn't make the cut on the live CD. If I remember, the mixing of the song wasn't great, so I was a little disappointed. Now with "Pop live", I can hear it live. Yay!

Just an FYI - Starting Over [Live] is on The Essential Eric Carmen 2 CD set that came out in 2014.

"Starting Over" from the new live CD is a standout GREAT track! Absolutely magical to hear Wally and Eric harmonizing on that one for the first time since the band broke up. Really had to hold back tears at the show and hearing it on the CD is a goosebump moment for sure!

I have an audience recording of Starting Over from this show- can't wait to hear the Tommy Allen treatment on my favorite song!

Here's another surprise. Of course, as the band honed their act and continued to play more shows their voices and chops just got better and better. But on this first glorious night, their first appearance together in three decades, the band member who sang most flawlessly was Dave Smalley. Every single one of his songs is sung with precision. I know Dave was writing his tunes for his more limited vocal range, but when you get the live CD you'll see. He nails each and everyone of his songs and his voice sounds exactly like it did when they were first recorded. Amazing, Dave!

If there is anyone in the Northeastern Ohio area--the cd is available at Record Den in Mentor Ohio--cool independent record store that carries an unbelievable inventory of music!! CD was $19.99 before tax. FYI.....

Sweet Jesus....got my CDs and picture this - 85 and sunny, the lawn is done, steak on the grill, tiki lights are lit, and a 12 pack of Sam Summer on ice and Raspberries Pop Art live blasting - talk about waking up the neighbors - best live set for me since 77 and Frampton - awesome, awesome, awesome - so good! Thank You so so much for putting this out, I am totally pumped! Wow!!! Guys, we only live once, please do it again. Ok, I got to go calm down. Thanks again.
