Time Peace: The Rascals' Greatest Hits
Label: Rhino Atlantic
Time Peace, with its immediately recognizable Roy Lichtenstein-style cover art, is The Rascals' most popular full-length. That's because the band excelled at churning out incredible singles. "Good Lovin'" -- exuberant, raucous and intensely propulsive -- has retained its freshness despite its endless abuse as a commercial jingle. Time Peace also serves as a map, detailing the band's evolution throughout the 1960s, during which they made the shift from Italian American soul rockers to Big Apple hippies crooning about groovin', rollin' easy and the mystical joys of love. Fantastic stuff!
