The Raspberries classic "Go All The Way" gets covered by Matthew Sweet & Susanna Hoffs

Power pop band The Raspberries had a huge hit in 1972 with “Go All The Way”. It’s ‘suggestive’ lyrics (it was 1972) got it banned by the BBC. Today is Wally Bryson’s birthday, he was the band’s lead guitarist. Today’s faithful cover is by Matthew Sweet & Susanna Hoffs.
