Too Much Raspberry was dedicated to Maryhelen Whitlock and was Russell's contribution to the Too Much series of titles initiated by Cecil Mack with his Très Moutarde (1911). It is an ambitious composition in AABBCCA form with a 4-bar introduction and a 4-bar interlude between the B- and C-strains whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively. The cover of the original sheet music shows an apprehensive student fleeing before a can of raspberry jam having dropped his Latin and calculus books. What all this has to do with the fox trot itself is a little mysterious.
Too Much Raspberry was published by Charles N. Daniels Music Publisher, San Francisco, California, USA.
A tempo of 120 crotchets/min. is suggested.
