In the beginning, their music was mainly up-tempo R+B. Their first single, I ain't gonna eat my heart out anymore, was a minor hit but the follow-up, a cover of Good lovin' (originally recorded by the Olympics) became their first chart-topper. After this, they started to write their own hits beginning with two top twenty hits (You better run, I've been lonely too long) and a minor hit (Come on up)), all of which they wrote. Next, they recorded a Motown cover (Too many fish in the sea, not included here) thinking it might give them their first UK hit - it didn't, but that was to come with their next single, the song they are best remembered for on both sides of the Atlantic - Groovin'.
1967, possibly the best year in popular music history, was also the best year by far in the careers of the Young Rascals, yielding three major American hits and their only UK hits. Groovin' provided the Young Rascals with their second American number one, while also making the UK top ten. It was very different from their earlier up-tempo R+B music, marking the start of a new style - mellow, romantic, sunny music. The follow-up, A girl like you, maintained the new style, becoming a top ten American hit and a minor UK hit. They never again made the UK charts but their next single, How can I be sure, was a top five hit in their homeland. In 1970, it provided Dusty Springfield with a minor UK hit. Following all those successes, the Young Rascals became the Rascals.Read more ›
The remaining tracks are also OK and there is an 8 page booklet from Rhino with a potted history of the band and the tracks. The front page of the booklet is the picture with the yellow border as shown with the CD on Amazon.
They weren't so known in the UK,beyond Groovin' but I think that along with The Turtles and early Beach Boys were one of the very best American band of the early 60's
