The Rascals Mar 13, 2019
An article about how bands like the Rascals are fading from public consciousness. I disagree that the knickers era might be a turn off...that was for a very brief period nationally. Still, I have been aware of this unfortunate trend for awhile (for instance, the article itself sights their hit "Got To Be Free") and wish there was a way to turn it around.(J.R) https://metv.com/lists/6-rock-bands-huge-in-the-60s-but-largely-forgotten-today?fbclid=IwAR2vhDwKSqDgxzDuJa6pQIvbsvkD7RLdU4VaXyqKlSy59Za7XwL4pje1j7I

RASCALS ANNIVERSARY--Today is purportedly the day The Rascals began performing at The Choo Choo Club in Garfield, N.J...54 years ago in 1965. They had not yet settled on the name "Rascals"...initially known under monikers such as Them, The Crayons and The Sardines. They would obtain Sid Bernstein as manager, sign with Atlantic records and release their first single all within the following eight months. (J.R)

Thank you for your fantastic comment to 1,2 and 3 of the Rascals fan "Questions" series. Many of you have contributed some really fun and interesting responses. I'm going to continue with this, and I encourage you to keep up with it for me. How do you fans enjoy it so far? Below is an image from an NBC TV special that the Rascals appeared on titled "Hallelujah,Leslie" with Leslie Uggams and Noel Harrison. On this special, they backed a production number set to the song "Groovin'" with special lyrics ("Groovin'..in a fac-to-ry of sound...) plus live vocal performance of "Rainy Day" and a lip sync of "It's Wonderful". Were any of you watching in 1968? Here is a rare photo taken during rehearsals.FLASH-I just located the audio of this show in the archives and will try and have it posted.(J.R)

From ‎TONY GLOEGGLER to The Rascals January 5 at 12:14 PM · So last night I went to see Felix Cavaliere at The City Winery. A good way to start the new year musically: the lead singer, the main song writer who wrote the music, the cool guy sitting behind the B3 Hammond organ of the (Young) Rascals, the first band I went nuts for, the first non-greatest hits album I ever bought, Groovin, one of the first 3 singles I bought at Woolworth's in Flushing, 3 for a dollar, Lonely Too Long....and it was a very good night. The man still can sing so sweet and soulful and he played all those songs I love...but I have my complaints because I believe in holding what and who you love to the highest standard. First off, stop trying too hard to be a front man playing to the crowd too hard. Just sit behind-don't stand, don't think of walking around clapping and pointing at the soloists-and play that damn organ and sing, that is the epitome of cool and the songs are all that matters. I do wish that you hadn't slightly speeded up The Midnight Hour, Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore and Mustang Sally. Slower, they're both sexier and hit harder. And try to remember that just because a 3 minute song is completely perfect, extending it to 5 minutes doesn't make it any better even if you throw in a couple of lines from the Temptations and Jackie Wilson though you can't do better than a little Higher and Higher...And finally, I get it that you and Dino Danelli-my favorite all time drummer-and Eddie Brigati-your co-writer and co-vocalist-are estranged, but if you're going to show clips of the Rascals playing on assorted Ed Sullivan shows and not once let them get in the picture, c'mon that is so amazingly petty. You're like 75 years old, don't be such a bitch. I mean, what would your Swami say...even though you are the most important component of the band. But hey the songs. Damn. You played longer and went deeper into the Rascals canon than the handful of times I'd previously seen you. I guess you saw how well they went over in that Rascals reunion that was so great 4 years ago. Covering See, Ray Of Hope, Heaven, What Is The Reason, It's Wonderful, Love Is A Beautiful Thing....What a great great version of A Girl Like You and one of the times with the horn section soaring where the 2 minute ride out actually made a great song better. Heaven was probably the best pure vocal of the night. See and What Is The Reason absolutely cooked. Lonely Too Long which he dedicated to some 95 year old fan was such a sweet ride but man how could you not do the organ solo. Ray Of Hope was so well hopeful. And the holy trinity was a pure blessing: Groovin' was completely beautiful and maybe the best NYC summer song ever made and definitely beats spending Sunday in some church, People Gotta Be Free just exploded and I know it's corny but I got all tingly, a bit teary and Good Lovin' is still the best song to hear on a summer afternoon Brroklyn stoop through an AM transistor while seventh grade girls walked by and smiled at you. It's a shame that so few younger people know their stuff, but I never heard of anyone accusing them of having any soul..---Tony Gloeggler

Does anyone remember "The Clay Cole Show" ? In December of 1966 the Rascals appeared and performed a comedic rendition of "Twas The Night Before Christmas" with manager Sid Bernstein making a cameo as Santa Claus. His line was "two cheese blintzes,please!" (J.R)

OH, WHEN THE HORN SOUNDS...One of the strangest and "out of character" Rascals tracks IMO is "Death's Reply" from the SEE album.It has edgier, darker subject matter--unlike anything else. They evidently thought enough of it to perform the song in concert on at least 4 occasions that I know of. What are it's strengths and (weaknesses,if any) ? I am interested in your comments and opinions. (J.R) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcCnkjexV4A

SOUL TOGETHER 1968 PHOTOS FOUND-Jack Robinson was a famous 60's era photographer who shot a lot for Vogue magazine. In June of 1968 he photographed the legendary "Soul Together" concert at Madison Square Garden-a benefit for Martin Luther King. Among the performers were King Curtis,Sonny & Cher, Sam & Dave ,Aretha Franklin and The Rascals. Jack's estate sells prints of many of his subjects, but never offered any of The Rascals until I contacted them to express interest. They made special arrangements to offer prints of these dramatic live photos to the followers of this page for purchase. Below you can view a few samples of some available images.
