The Very Best of the Rascals [Rhino]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ron Wynn
Although Rhino issued a deluxe two-CD set covering the Rascals a few years previously, this single-disc set contains enough essential songs for you to get the point. The Rascals, along with the Righteous Brothers, defined blue-eyed soul singing, making records that were as churchy, earthy, and convincing as anything that came out of the South or Motown in the '60s, backed by tight, anthemic arrangements and excellent combo playing.

The only quibble is their failure to include "Look Around," a sociopolitical cut from the Freedom Suite album that's just a cut below "People Got to Be Free" or "A Ray of Hope." [Rhino reissued this same set, artwork and all, in 2007, adding a slide-off slip cover adorned with the title Greatest Hits.]

    Well worth the money

    I have ripped 11 selections to my computer so this CD was priced right. MP3 downloads cost 99 cents each so simple math shows a good deal. The magic words here are RHINO. I have never had problems with their compilations.
