Biography

Scott McCarl of The Raspberries offers up a delightful 50-minute, 17-track album. Scott didn’t write the Holy Book Of Pop, but he certainly adds some new chapters to the book with this effort.

“Wait A Minute Girl,” written by Scott and Michael Favorito, is a stunner, with Beatles references throughout (how the heck can Scott sound like both John and Paul?). “I’ll Be On My Way,” written by Billy Sullivan and Brent Warren of The Action, is an instant classic, full of the kind of sounds that, dare I say it, makes The Beatles music enjoyable to this day.

Before Scott joined Raspberries in 1973, the band had recorded the Eric Carmen-Dave Smalley “Nobody Knows,” and Scott covers the song here, giving the song the necessary Lennon-esque edge it was missing the first time around.

You’ll be reminded of how great John Lennon was and amazed again at how Scott recreates The Beatles “Yes It Is,” bringing renewed vigor to that 1965 classic. It will also bring tears to the eyes of Lennon fans.
