Raspberries Unpublished Material?

its prob already been covered before somewhere, but can eric, or someone, describe to me if there are any raspberries tunes that were recorded but never saw the light of day?

maybe they were tunes that got squeezed off the album b/c of space or aesthetics or preferences, or they weren't fully happy w/ the performance captured. i guess i'd be mainly interested if any of them were eric's more so than the other guys, & if a version of any of these tunes are floating around out there somewhere (like on eric's or bernie's computer that he could upload!;-)

would just be interesting to hear any, since their published library consisted of 4 albums (just enough to leave us hanging & calling for more 30+ years later)

Wally plays a mean harmonica on one of them.

I bought two copies of that when BMG Music Service had it briefly (gave my extra copy to a Cleveland Plain Dealer writer), and you are correct sir --- both songs were written by Eric and Wally!

Wally's harmonica is too cool!

In case you need another reason to buy the "Special Edition," the demos on the new release are remastered from the original tapes and sound much better than those on the hard-to-find Capitol CD. The only versions of the tunes that existed when Capitol issued their "Greatest Hits" CD were on acetates. The new material (discovered just a short time ago) even features some pre-roll, so you hear the boys fiddling with their instruments and harmonica before the take starts!!!
