Classic Rock/Soul Faves The Rascals Getting a Complete Atlantic Studio Recordings Box Set

7-CD box set releasing May 31st

The Rascal’s entire Atlantic Records output, spanning 1965-1971, is being released as a 7-CD box set titled The Rascals: It’s Wonderful: The Complete Atlantic Studio Recordings. The 152 remastered songs include 14 previously unreleased tracks. The first four albums are presented in both stereo and mono, along with significant single edits and foreign language versions. The collection includes a 60-page booklet with detailed notes and rare illustrations from The Rascals archives. It’s available for pre-order in the U.S. here and in the U.K. here.

As Best Classic Rock Bands site notes, the great rock and soul band, first known as The Young Rascals, and later, simply, The Rascals, delivered some of the great sides of the mid-to-late ‘60s with such era-defining singles as “Good Lovin’,” “Groovin’,” “It’s a Beautiful Morning” and “People Got To Be Free.”

From the label’s announcement: In the mid-1960s, the Rascals fused the best of rock and soul and they remain one of the most beloved of acts of that era. The electrifying quartet of Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigati, Gene Cornish, and Dino Danelli defined the term blue-eyed soul. As the hits mounted up, the group expanded their musical horizons and revealed a powerful songcraft with introspective originals “Groovin’” [one of the group’s three #1 singles] and “How Can I Be Sure,” both future standards.

The Rascals: It’s Wonderful: The Complete Atlantic Studio Recordings box set is being released on May 31, 2024, on Now Sounds via the U.K.’s Cherry Red Records.
