Album Review

The history of '60s rock is littered with stories of great rock classics — the Savages' album, the Thirteenth Floor Elevators' first two albums, the first two Chocolate Watch Band albums — that should have been better known than they were. The Young Rascals is that rare example of a genuinely great album that got heard and played, and sold and sold. Apart from the presence of a hit ("Good Lovin'") to drive sales, every kid (and his girlfriend) in any aspiring white rock band on the East Coast in 1966 seemingly owned a copy. And it's easy to see why — the Rascals' debut couples a raw garage band sound with compelling white soul more successfully than just about any record since the Beatles' Please Please Me. The band had three powerful singers in Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigati, and Gene Cornish, and an attack honed in hundreds of hours of playing dance clubs on Long Island and New York City. The result is a record without a weak moment or a false note anywhere in its 35 minutes: "Do You Feel It" shows them crossing swords stylistically with Smokey Robinson & the Miracles; "Just a Little" and "Like a Rolling Stone" show off their folk-rock chops; and "Slow Down," "Good Lovin'," "Mustang Sally," and "In the Midnight Hour" are all '60s rock & roll classics in these versions. "Like a Rolling Stone," in particular, now seems all the more compelling, pointing the way toward a future that included Hendrix's version of "All Along the Watchtower." The CD reissue is one of Warner Special Products' better sounding releases, having been remastered by Rhino's Bill Inglot. The original album was on Atlantic, and was one of the label's best-sellers of the mid-'60s.

Customer Reviews

It's the Rascals, so I can't give them low marks

But the collected hits CD "Time Peace" is better, imo. I forget whether Sueno is on that CD, but it's a GREAT song. I miss this band.

Good Lovin'

The only song I know on this CD is Good Lovin' but i l.o.v.e. it! It's like a really addicting song to me because we did this song for our clogging song in dance and we got platinum in Statewide Nationals and ever since dancing to this song its really grown on me.

Great album

This group so new,fresh to hear,it brings alot of wonderful memories. Would like to see the song "A Ray of Hope" to be included in their Repertoire. Thanks ! LV 15

Biography

Formed: 1964 in New York, NY

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s

The Rascals, along with the Righteous Brothers, Mitch Ryder, and precious few others, were the pinnacle of '60s blue-eyed soul. The Rascals' talents, however, would have to rate above their rivals, if for nothing else than the simple fact that they, unlike many other blue-eyed soulsters, penned much of their own material. They also proved more adept at changing with the fast-moving times, drawing much of their inspiration from British Invasion bands, psychedelic rock, gospel, and even a bit of jazz...
