Raspberries - The Midnight Special - May 4, 1973


Recommended Posts

All cued up and ready to watch this original Midnight Special with the Raspberries at 8pm EASTERN tonight! 

Do you think my neighbors are going to lodge a noise ordinance complaint when I crank up the speakers? (We live in a single family home. 😉

What a great show with such an eclectic mix of talent, from soul to reggae and country to power pop.

Johnny Nash shines, not only as a great vocalist, but also as a magnificent host.

And of course the Raspberries were fab.

I remember sneaking out of bed and going downstairs to quietly watch the Midnight Special after my folks were asleep.  A bygone era...

Totally fun!!!! I vacillated between watching it on my computer (with great speakers) where I could continue to get work done, or going to our large TV with its high def screen. The TV won out - it was like watching it in a movie theater with surround sound!

I surely did not remember the huge range of music along with the comedians from seeing the entire episode during my teen years. Johnny Nash did a great job on the MC and performing - golden voice he had!
