Originally called the Young Rascals, this group never made much impact in the UK (where they only had one major hit and one minor hit) but they were more successful in their American homeland, where they had several big hits including three that went all the way to number one. This compilation contains all their hits and the best of their other music.
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.

For those who remember the Rascals, aka the Young Rascals, from the sixties, and listened to their various singles on the radio, this is a great compilation. My own favourites were Groovin', A Beautiful Morning, A Girl Like You, Good Lovin', How Can I Be Sure, It's Wonderful, I've been lonely too long, and See.

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.

Really great CD. I only bought it because I heard the track 'People got to be free' somewhere and if only for that track this CD is worth every penny, but I can honestly say every song on this CD is brilliant! A very underestimated band!

Fantastic music, a great mix of rock & soul on the Atlantic label. Once again it covers ALL their hit,s on both sides of "the pond" - real value of a brilliant 60s group.

The rascals where one of the top bands of the 60s .They are far better vocaly than the usual suspects and I would say have better songs.The rascals have a very distinctive sound with Felix cavalieres Hammond organ Gene Cornish rytheme guitar and probably the best drummer at the time in Dino Danelli ad to that eddie brigatti's great high picht harmony vocals and there aren't much bands around any better.

This band were responsible for some of the great hits on the 1960's. Groovin,How Can I Be Sure and the wonderful People Gotta Be Free.
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

they only had one relatively "major" hit in the uk (grooving) but all the other tracks are good too. tracks 2,3,4 and 7 I remember from offshore radio in the 60s (im giving away my age here!). if you remember anything by the rascals then buy this album you wont regret it.
