  2. My bad. It makes sense now. I never noticed it before until I heard it on The Essentials CD.
  3. For what it's worth, at the end of Overnight Sensation, you can hear a faint intro to Go All The Way. I've heard the same thing, if I remember correctly, on the same song on The Essentials CD. If it was "Mastered Impeccably", why wouldn't that error be removed? I'd be surprised if he used the Capital Records tapes. The LP still sounds pretty good though.
  4. Just came across this. Friday Music is taking pre-orders for Raspberries Greatest Hits LP in raspberry colored vinyl. Ships on 7/02/19. Raspberries - Raspberries Greatest Hits 180 Gram Audiophile Raspberry Vinyl/Limited Edition/Gatefold Cover $32.98 | FMLP291 Track List: Side 1: Don't Want To Say Goodbye Go All The Way I Wanna Be With You Let's Pretend Last Dance Cruisin' Music Nobody Knows Side 2: Drivin' Around Tonight I'm A Rocker Ecstasy Starting Over Party's Over Overnight Sensation The Raspberries' Eric Carmen, Wally Bryson, David Smalley & Jim Bonfanti joined forces in 1970 in Cleveland, Ohio. Almost immediately after the release of their first LP, success followed worldwide thanks to their smash hit #1 "Go All The Way." Blending elements of garage band rock and roll, British invasion alongside the powerful lead vocals of Eric Carmen, this hit single was the catalyst which would soon make them a major recording and touring act. Throughout the seventies, Raspberries would release some of the most memorable rock and pop songs ever waxed. Wonderful rockers like "I Wanna Be With You" "Tonight" "Party's Over" and power rock ballads like "Let's Pretend" and "Overnight Sensation" flourished all over the airwaves making these all modern day classics. In the compact disc era, Capitol Records awarded this amazing band with the fantastic collection "Raspberries Greatest Hits" featuring all of their key hit singles noted above and other top charters like "Ecstasy" "Crusin' Music" & "I'm A Rocker." Other notables joined the band over the years like Scott McCarl and Michael McBride and their work is also represented here with more hit tracks like "Starting Over." In honor of the legendary Raspberries and their music, Friday Music is very pleased to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of the Capitol Records classic Raspberries Greatest Hits. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (The Monkees) at Friday Music Studios from the Capitol Records tapes, the first time audiophile album will be pressed for a very limited time on 180 Gram Raspberry colored vinyl. To further enhance your Raspberries experience, we are also including a striking first time gatefold cover art presentation, featuring photos of all their original Lp covers, photos of the band, and a new appreciation note from The Beach Boys' Bruce Johnston. "Go All The Way" and 13 other fantastic tracks....."Raspberries Greatest Hits"....Super Limited Edition Raspberry Colored 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl.....Stellar Gatefold Cover Art! Available exclusively from your friends at Friday Music.
  5. Anyone notice who played guitar on I Could Really Love You? I smell a Raspberries reunion in the near future! Click on Personnel to the right of the new songs. BTW - They sound great. I always skipped over Top Down Summer from the Winter Dreams album. I just never liked it that much. I really like the new version.

  7. Mine came in the mail today. The return address on the shipping label was some guy with an address in Hillsborough, NC. The packing slip was from 11Spot though. I also received an email a couple of days ago from endicia that an item was shipped. I assumed it must be the Raspberries vinyl but there was no indication of who sent it or what was being shipped. Sheesh! At least we are getting them now. It was packed properly and no seam splits.
  8. I know you're not asking me but I ordered mine on 11/29/17 and haven't received it either. I sent an email a couple of days ago and this was the response: We have received your order, but we are waiting on stock to arrive. There was a delay in the manufacturing, and so orders are shipping out later than anticipated. As soon as we have stock here, orders will begin shipping out immediately. Sorry for the wait and inconvenience. Let me know if there is anything I can help with. The email came from 11spot.com customer service. It appears that they are a 3rd party that is handling Omnivore's orders. Hopefully we will get the LP's soon.
  9. You will actually get a small piece of paper in the package that will give you a code to get a free digital download of the entire album. No need to pay for the 2 bonus tracks, if purchasing the LP's.
  10. Hey Bernie, Is that a participation trophy you gave me? I'm not a Millennial!
  11. Omnivore has a half off vinyl sale 11/28/17 - 12/01/17. The Raspberries Pop Art Live LP's is included in that sale. Ask me how I know! I'm going to keep this one sealed. $27.49 + tax & shipping. No excuses. Go get it.
  12. Ok Bernie. You successfully guilted me into buying this at my "local" record store. I made a list of record stores near me and started calling this morning. Me - "Did you get any Raspberries Pop Art Live LPs for Record Day?" Them - "No, there wasn't much available for any title this year." Next! Them - "No, sorry." Next! Them - "No." Next! Them - "No." Next! Them - "No." Next! Them - "Yes, we have 2 of them." Next! Wait, what? Success! After a 30 minute drive each way and paying much more than buying it online, I have it! That's right, I'm cool! I saved the record store with some love and money.
  13. Thanks Dave. Not very fan friendly on the part of Omnivore, especially after originally offering it up for pre-order. I'm not inclined to actually try and find a record store, let alone find one that will have it. I don't need it that bad.
  14. I pre-ordered the Pop Art Live LP's several months ago. I just received an email from SoundStageDirect. Apparently, the record company just notified them that Pop Art Live is not available at this time. They wanted to know if I would like to exchange the title for another, or would I prefer a store credit or refund. Not a good sign. Anybody know what is going on or if it will ever be released?
  15. Just an FYI - Starting Over [Live] is on The Essential Eric Carmen 2 CD set that came out in 2014.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Me too! I just pre-ordered the CD on Amazon based on those 2 songs. FYI - Amazon has the pre-order price at $10.00, if interested.
  19. I received the 2016 Geffen CD today from Amazon. It has 2 bonus tracks of I Wanna Hear It From Your Lips. The first one is the Single Remix and is 3:11 in length. The second one is the 12" Version and is 6:04 in length. Amazon only lists this CD as having one bonus track. A bonus on the bonus!
  20. I received the box set yesterday. The CD's sound great. I don't have the latest Japan releases so I can't compare them to this set. If you need all 4 Raspberries CD's, want to save a bunch of money, and don't mind the missing bonus tracks, get this boxed set instead of the Japan releases.
  21. If anyone is interested, Amazon is selling all 4 Raspberries CD's in a boxed set for $24.99. Pretty good reviews so far. Remastered on 11/27/15 by Andy Pearce? One reviewer even said they are comparable to the recent Japan remasters. No bonus tracks however.
  22. Thanks Linda. I pre-ordered 2 of the Geffen reissues. I only wish I saw the pre-order on Amazon sooner. I just bought the Japan Geffen reissue CD from eBay a few weeks ago and paid twice the price. Oh well. The Geffen reissues sure have brought down the price of the original Geffen CD's on eBay. Last year they were going for around $100 or more. Now some are selling in the $30 range.
  23. The last 2 minutes of Hitch a Ride by Boston.
