The Rascals – Time Peace: The Rascals’ Greatest Hits

The Rascals had a strong run of infectious songs in the mid and late ’60s. They are best known for their hits “Good Lovin'”, “Groovin'”, and “(I’ve Been) Lonely Too Long”. Rhythm and blues infused rock and roll with strong vocal harmonies and addictive hooks that stick in your head gave The Rascals a timeless sound; one that carried over into the 1980s when Pat Benatar made “You Better Run” one of her early hits.

“Time Peace” is a greatest hits collection that is mostly original songs along with some notable covers like “Mustang Sally” and Wilson Picket’s “In the Midnight Hour”.

For their early records, the band released their albums under the name The Young Rascals because of contention with a group from the ’30s and ’40s called the Harmonica Rascals. However, they were still quite often referred to as The Rascals by their fans and eventually decided to drop the “Young” from their name, releasing their later records, including “Time Peace” under their original moniker.
