Raspberries is the debut album from the Raspberries, released in 1972 (see 1972 in music). It was their second-highest charting LP, reaching #51 on the Billboard album chart, but spent more weeks on the chart than all of their other albums combined.

The American version of this LP (cat #SK11036) carried a scratch'n'sniff sticker scented with a soft fruit perfume.

This album was re-released on CD as part of the 'Power Pop vol. 1,' also containing their second album 'Fresh Raspberries'.

It contained two charting singles, "Don't Want to Say Goodbye," which reached #86, and their biggest hit, "Go All the Way," which reached #5.
