From the opening "One, Two, Three" of their debut 1966 smash "Good Lovin'," The Young Rascals were the hottest, most dynamic rock group New York had ever seen. The runaway train of chart-topping singles that followed -- "I've Been Lonely Too Long," "Groovin'," "A Girl Like You," "How Can I Be Sure," "A Beautiful Morning" -- and the four albums they came from, permanently retired the blue-eyed soul trophy. Here they are again in all their Buster Brown-collared, soulful glory: The Young Rascals, Collections, Groovin' and Once Upon a Dream -- exact replicas of the highly collectible original LPs, each one on high-definition vinyl and mastered from the vintage analog tapes. Groovin' to the Rascals on vinyl? It's Wonderful.

"The (Young) Rascals were one of the best American bands from the classic mid to late 60's era of rock. Most of their best stuff is found on this set (although I wish they'd found room for "It's Love"). The mastering is good, and I applaud Rhino's decision to present the material from the first few albums in mono (the stereo mixes are way too 'ping-pongy'). An essential addition to any collection of classic 60s rock music."
