I can't tell you what it is, but I like these guys.
Lester L. Carter
All the tracks are stereo, all the essential Rascals tracks are here, and it sounds better than the 1992 remaster!

Recommend this CD for any Rascals fan or any oldies fan for that matter.

There is one reason why you should purchase "The Ultimate Rascals", over the Rhino collections, "Best Of", or "Anthology". The Warner collection is the only one that has the full album length version of "Lonely Too Long". It is hard to believe that Rhino would place a short edit version of the song and eliminate a whole verse? The "Ultimate", collection is just the perfect sampler for the casual fans, who would like a nice 20 song overview of this great band at a great price. All the chart-toppers are here as well as several great album cuts.

If you're looking for the best Rascals collection, you can stop right here. I excitedly bought the 2 disc collection when it came out years ago, and was disappointed with the sound and the fact that most of the first disc was mono. I knew this collection existed, but was leary as it was released at he dawn of the CD age (way back in '86). I finally took a chance and it's fantastic! All the tracks are stereo, all the essential Rascals tracks are here, and it sounds better than the 1992 remaster! Go figure.
If you're looking for the perfect 20 song distillation of essential Rascals, you've found it. Ah, go ahead. Remind yourself why these guys had so many hits between 1966 and 1968. They were awesome!

This disk is an excellent starting point for anyone even mildly interested in The Rascals. Before I got this disk, I only knew the big standard hits, which include "Good Lovin", "Groovin", "A Beautiful Morning", and "People Got to be Free". Each of these songs sounds better than ever on this collection for two main reasons. First, all songs on this disk (except "I Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore") are in stereo (apparently the only Rascals collection with "almost" all-stereo versions on it), and second, there are many other great songs on this disk for the listener to discover.

Although it took a few listens to really appreciate the rest of the songs on this CD, I realized that there was a lot of great music here that I hadn't discovered yet. Just about every song on this album is solid on its own, yet they really make the disk flow well when put together here.

There's really no good reason why the Rascals' Atlantic albums - even the sometimes-obstreperous "Freedom Suite" - should remain out of print in the United States (they can be found as various import sets). The best white soul band of the 1960s deserves better than just a greatest-hits-plus anthology...but what an anthology this is. (It beats the earnest but lesser "Very Best of the Rascals" hollow.) Not just because it reminds you just why the Rascals were one of the prime reasons the top 40 was a legitimate wonderland between 1965 and 1969 (you have to be a real sourpuss to say you've heard as much of "I Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore," "Good Lovin'," "Groovin'," "A Girl Like You," "How Can I Be Sure," "A Beautiful Morning," or "I've Been Lonely Too Long" too many times), but because it includes the absolute best of their handful of near-misses from those years, particularly the oddly delightful "It's Wonderful" and the badly-underappreciated "See."
As a songwriting team, Felix Cavaliere and Eddie Brigati for long enough were at least on a par with Lennon and McCartney, Jagger and Richards, Holland-Dozier-Holland, and (before the dope ate the muse) John Phillips. As a band, the Rascals need no apology, particularly Dino Danelli (the no-questions-asked best white R and B drummer of his time) and Cavaliere (if he seemed like a seminar study in every known soul style, he still managed to sound completely like himself). Nor does singer Eddie Brigati need apology; he could shout with the best but his way with a ballad (remind yourself, if nothing else, with "Groovin'" and, especially, "A Beautiful Morning") was equally gripping.

Not unlike some other unfairly overlooked bands like the Hollies, the Grass Roots or the Turtles, the Rascals may have suffered somewhat from being a largely "faceless" band, but they sure made some great music, and this single disc, 20-song collection is an excellent overview...All the Top-40 hits are here (and there were 13 of those, including three #1's and two other Top-5 hits), as well as their first chart record ("I Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore") and other nuggets like "Easy Rollin'," "Come On Up" and "Love Is A Beautiful Thing"...This is like an AM radio soundtrack from 1966-68, and what could be better than that? Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigati and company produced some of the best "blue-eyed soul" and pop music of an era which arguably was the apotheosis of a time when pop, rock and soul could all be played on the same station. My only quibble is that the liner notes are minimal, so you don't get any band history as one would normally expect with such a collection. Otherwise: awesome, and essential.
