Is this group generally underrated? I sense so, but maybe people in-the-know have always valued them. This is a beaut of a song and performance. thanks for sharing.

I've read that The Raspberries were interested in being The Beatles circa 1965 at a time when people had other things on their minds. I'm glad I unearthed this track. Two months ago I'd never heard it, though supposedly it wasn't a total stiff on the charts. To me, the band deserves a spot in the Hall of Fame for "Go All the Way" alone. ("Go All the Way" was used in "Guardians of the Galaxy," I see; hope Eric Carmen had a nice big payday.)

Actually, I am "one of the seven people in North America who haven't seen last summer's blockbuster movie 'Guardians of the Galaxy.'" Glad to see that the song is given kind of a narrative hook ("he takes out an old cassette tape, given to him by his mother on her deathbed as a parting gift") and isn't just a case of "hey, audience, listen to this cool old song!" Well, it is that, too, of course.
