It's often mentioned that The Beatles were the inital template for Power Pop bands, but other American bands that picked up the Rickenbacker in the mid sixties did even more to shape the sound into a solid genre, instead of a mere offshoot of Merseybeat. "It's Cold Outside" by The Choir is what really great local bands sounded like at junior high and high school dances in the mid-late '60s - particularly in the eastern half of the country. The pride of Mentor, Ohio, The Choir would eventually join forces with Eric Carmen of Cyrus Erie to form '70s power pop sensation, The Rasberries.
