Best Reunion of 2007

The worst one can say about the Raspberries Live on Sunset Strip is that its 2 years too late. Recorded at their reunion in 2005, it's just now getting out on Ryko. Ah, but what memories. Power Pop is one of those unsung genres. And the Raspberries were the best of the bunch. Eric Carmen went on to bigger but blander success solo, but with the Raspberries he's King. Even at 21 songs, I can bitch. No "Rose Coloured Glasses"? Criminal. As reunion shows go these were pretty good. Carmen's voice isn't what it was, but the rest of the band sound strong. The Police? Genesis? Nah, I'll take this as my reunion of the year.
