Eric Carmen recognized that a huge void existed for the kind of music that he had admired, emulated, and played his whole life. He longed to be in a band that would lovingly trace the steps of his beloved '60s rock brethren, rekindling the glory days of the Beatles, the Who, and the Beach Boys. That year, Jim Bonfanti called. Eric and Jim were the brain trust behind this grand concept. Their new band would effect a head-on collision with the local progressive rock scene. As 1971 drew to a close, Raspberries packed their bags and headed to the Big Apple to record their first album. And now, only one thought was racing through Eric's mind: "I want a hit record (yeah!).
