Once Upon A Dream
Label: Rhino Atlantic
There doesn't exist a single group from the '60s who didn't make their very own Sgt. Pepper -- a psychedelic opus, bursting with Day-Glo gumdrops and shimmering rainbows. Even the Rascals, those blue-eyed soul dudes from grimy New York City, lassoed a full symphony and banged out syrupy spoken word about the joys of rainy spring days. And while Once Upon a Dream isn't perfect, some of the Rascals' best tunes are here, including "Easy Rollin'" and the punchy jazz-rocker "Please Love Me."
