"All I Really Need!"

.."I've Been Lonely Too Long!.." This New York area band started out playing the club circuit in Jersey, L.I. & N.Y.C.; patterning themselves after other Soul and R&B acts they saw & played with! They soon lost the "young schoolboy" outfits and the name "Young Rascals"; matured into better performers & songwriters and became "The Rascals!" {Both "Time and Peace" were forever changed by the heady era of the Late 1960's-Early '70's music & culture} Growing up from the saucy "Blue-Eyed Soul" of "Good Lovin" & "Come On Up" to the yearning for universal peace & unity of "A Beautiful Morning" & "How Can I Be Sure"; these "Rascals" were a powerful force on the AM Radio "Back in the Day!" ("Time Peace" offers you 14 good reasons + reminders to Dance & Think along with them!)...by Grimmbo.

Great music but not all stereo

BEWARE...not all tracks are stereo like the original vinyl release. Where is iTunes quality control? I resent purchasing digital files that are not as quality as the original recordings.
The music is five star but the lack of stereo is one star.
Still have the vinyl...a genuine classic album. Looked forward to listening to this great album on my iPod after many many years and was seriously disappointed when I found that several tracks were MONO!
Shame on iTunes.

The Rascals

Back in the 60's, I worked with The Rascals in a small club in NYC called The Peppermint Lounge, this was before Atlantic records signed them, back then it was very common for clubs to book two bands at a time so they had live music all night. I remember like it was yesterday we flipped a coin with Felix to see who would go on first, this way if you win you get out of there earlier. They won the toss and did the first set. I was a drummer and whenever you work with another band you always hope that you sound a little better. We were one of the top club bands in NJ at the time. Well, me and the bass player came out and stood on the side of the stage when they were tuning up. They opened up their set with Felix's arrangement of "Slow Down"...I looked at our bass player and said "Whoa what the fu-k is this? They were dressed just like the cover of their first album, with them sitting on Felix's B-3. I knew we were in trouble. We were noted for our five part harmony, and we used to do a Moody Blues show that came off great. These guys had that east coast sound that was starting to becme popular. The Fudge came out,The Vagrants,The Hassles who Billy Joel played keyboard for. We knew that night that these guys were on their way. It wasn't long after that night that Atlantic signed them and Artie Resnick wrote Good Lovin' for them and Eddies brother David produced them.Thanks for reading.
