The Rascals: Anthology 1965-1972

type:
Music
Current Status:
In Season
genre:
Reissues

We gave it a B+

The first disc of this fine retrospective, which covers the Young Rascals’ boom years, is packed with hits like the organ-driven R&B rave ”Good Lovin”’ and the infectiously mellow ”Groovin’.” A record of the no-longer-Young Rascals’ decline from chart top (”People Got to Be Free”) to oblivion, disc two of The Rascals Anthology presents a flavorful potpourri of jazz, soul, psychedelic-pop, and gospel, boasting a fair measure of overlooked delights that reflect the Rascals’ unwavering taste and invention.
