The Raspberries have been basking in the glow of their reunion shows and the subsequent Live on Sunset Strip CD for a couple of years now. It's fitting that the group — featuring all four original members — comes home for the holidays this week. Eric Carmen and crew racked up a string of medium-size hits during the '70s (including air-guitar powerhouse "Go All the Way"). But they fell apart not long after their greatest achievement, the Wall-of-Sound-influenced "Overnight Sensation (Hit Record)," barely dented the charts. Since that time, the Raspberries have been heralded by everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Fountains of Wayne as power-pop maestros. Here's your chance to hear all those songs live.
