Little known in the UK, the Raspberries were more successful in their native America, but not an overnight sensation.
Written by band leader Eric Carmen here's a review of this single:
In a word... epic! 'Overnight Sensation' is probably the Raspberries' most adventurous record. Taking a somewhat Phil Spector, kitchen sink approach, it's a mini-symphony packed into a five minute song. Overflowing with vocals, percussion, guitars, drums, saxophones, pianos, you name it, the song is an majestic slice of pop music.
