DOWNLOAD RASPBERRIES FLYER!


Recommended Posts

The trick is to NOT print it from your web browser. Rather, save it to your hard drive and open it in any other program that previews images. Then print from there. The image is 8"x10" at 300 d.p.i., so it will print on most inkjet printers on one page in high quality. If you try and print it from Explorer, Safari or the like, you'll get a header and footer that will force the image to break and not print fully. Hope that's easy for everyone to understand :-)

I've printed off 10 posters already and I'm headed down to Virginia Beach boardwalk to post them everywhere. The tourist season is still in full swing which includes Friday night concerts at the bandstand. I'm also sending one to the local radio stations and ask them to mention the upcoming CD whenever they play a Raspberries tune.

From The Cleveland Plain Dealer's "Rockin' Blog" feature at http://blog.cleveland.com/rockin/ :

--------------------

CBS's The Early Show

Support Cleveland by coming out to the huge stage in front of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum Friday morning. CBS' "The Early Show" broadcasts LIVE on a huge stage rain or shine 7:00 - 9:00 a.m. The all-star line-up includes celebrity chef Bobby Flay along with a few Cleveland chefs. Rocker and Rock Hall inductee Patti Smith will perform a free mini-concert at the end of the show.

Patti Smith performs Friday in Cleveland.Bring a "Cleveland+" sign and you'll be eligible to win a pair of Cleveland Browns tickets or one of two pairs of Cleveland Indians tickets. All attendees with homemade "Cleveland+" signs or shirts with "Cleveland+" can visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Musuem for free immediately following the broadcast.

-------------------------

Sounds like an opportunity for Cleveland Raspberries fans to show up as a group in Raspberries T-shirts with Bernie's great Raspberries "Live On Sunset Strip" flyers in hand to hand to a national broadcaster live or make a huge "Cleveland+Raspberries=Rock 'n' Roll" signs or banners.

Maybe there's still a chance to make a contact with someone at the Hall and/or CBS for a Raspberries interview (or to plug the band's new album with clips from the DVD)?

Getting 250,000 hits a month, The Classic Rock Radio Roundup --- http://www.therockradio.com/2007/07/classic-rock-round-up.html --- mentions the new release:

-----------------------------

Bruce Springsteen has contributed to the liner notes to the new Raspberries live album, called Live On Sunset Strip. Springsteen wrote in part, "...they are THE great underrated power pop masters. Their best records are as fun and sound as fresh today as when they were released. Soaring choruses, Beach Boys harmonies over crunchy Who guitars, lyrics simultaneously innocent, lascivious, and all about sex, sex, sex continue to make an unbeatable combination."

The Raspberries Live On Sunset Strip, which is the band's first new collection in 33 years, will be released on July 31st.

There's two sites that are giving away copies of "Live On Sunset Strip" in email contests (another way of showing fan interest is how many people enter these contests):

Amplifier Magazine: http://amplifiermagazine.com/contests/raspberries_live_on_sunset_str.php

Exclusive Magazine: http://www.annecarlini.com/ex_giveaways.php

Wishing those about to enter those contests the best of luck...

And a third website with a contest offering a chance to win a copy of the album:

Quick... somebody get ahold of CBS, NBC, ABC. I'd love a healthy serving of Raspberries to start out the morning. With the positive reviews, surely one of the networks would book them. All we need is a tour to have them mention to one of the anchors.

Someone should get Rykodisc to update their two retail sales pages at

http://rykodistribution.net/artist_title.php?artist_id13102&media_id=20746 and http://rykodistribution.net/artist_title.php?artist_id=13102&media_id=20747

I believe those Rykodisc Distribution pages are the pages used by retailers to decide whether to carry a CD or not.

Both pages list "no reviews," when there are now several reviews (like Billboard and USA Today) out there that might influence the "buyers" at retail, the people who actually decide what product goes into the stores.

Those early reviews could sway the "buyers" (often a guy who buys for thousands of stores, in the case of the biggies like (Kmart, Walmart and Target) "all by himself") if they see them.

That sticker on the cover of the album with "liner notes by Bruce Springsteen" will sell some albums if people see it, too (I just wish it smelled like Raspberries...)

And those of you printing and putting up flyers like Bernie has here for download (again, lovely job, big guy), or calling your deejays at radio to let them know about the band's return, I salute you. You will make a difference (look at CBS-TV's "Jericho," cancelled but now renewed because thousands of fans united and made it happen).

I think Rykodisc is doing a pretty good job. I'm glad they're part of Warner Brothers. Best Buy has "Greatest" (Capitol) on their shelves and they list the two retail versions of "Live On Sunset Strip" at their website, so that's a retailer to thank (hopefully "Live" will be in their brick-and-mortar stores as well).

Curiously small mention of the band at The Cleveland Plain Dealer's webiste today at http://www.cleveland.com/plaindealer/sto...&thispage=1 by Gary Graff (a writer out of Michigan) about new releases --- huge mention of Silverchair's new album and a short blurb about Raspberries on page 7 of the online article:

---------------------

The Raspberries

"Live on Sunset Strip"

Rykodisc

Bruce Springsteen wrote the liner notes for the document of the power pop legends' 2005 West Coast show.

----------------------

I hope the PD does something more about the hometown lads when the album comes out on Tuesday (keeping my fingers crossed). Haven't seen anything at the websites for Cleveland Scene, The Cleveland Free Times or Cleveland's Sun Newspapers yet.

I'm curious: has the band or any members of the band made plans for in-store signings at any Cleveland stores next week when the album comes out? Those events usually grab some newsprint.

I printed out a copy and posted it in our store (live equipment only).

People are commenting about the Raspberries playing live in LA. It doesn't say anything about a CD or DVD coming out. They think they're playing live in La sometime. Might want to add the CD sales to the poster.

Nice looking poster!

If I were the Raspberries, I'd arrange to play on a rooftop in downtown Cleveland a la the Beatles next week (Dave, you up to it?). Of course, I wouldn't want them to do it ON the 31st unless it was at rush hour end of day because I will be holed up in Key Tower at a work event for two days. But...

Wish I could have gone to the Rock Hall yesterday, but there's this "gotta work" thing...

Bernie,

I know we don't want to crowd the flyer, but maybe you can list the five Cash Box Top 40 hits ("Go All The Way," "I Wanna Be With You," "Let's Pretend," "Tonight" and "Overnight Sensation (Hit Record)") with a mention of Bruce Springsteen's liner notes (which will certainly grab people's attention).

Might just say "Original line-up plays Go All the Way + 4 more top 40 hits!!" or

Original line-up plays ALL 5 top 40 hits!!"

*** I'm not too keen on the "102%" thing since most people say "110%" ... or was Billboard just trying to be different!! If the flyer gets too crowded you could dump the "102%" statement

(and leave Billboard's 1st statement about "sing their hearts out" in there). ***

this is a reply from Austin's world-famous Waterloo records (waterloorecords.com), upon my inquiry within about the release. seems he's talking about just the cd, not the combo:

Hey Kyle,

We have a bunch on order so it should be in stock tomorrow. It'll be on sale for $14.99.

thanks,

Doug @ Waterloo
