Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time - "Good Lovin'" - Rated 333/500!
From the opening "One, Two, Three" of their debut 1966 smash "Good Lovin’,"
The Young Rascals were the hottest, most dynamic rock group New York had ever
seen. The runaway train of chart-topping singles that followed - "I've Been
Lonely Too Long," "Groovin’," "A Girl Like You," "How Can I Be Sure," "A
Beautiful Morning" - and the four albums they came from, permanently retired the
blue-eyed soul trophy. Here they are again in all their Buster Brown-collared,
soulful glory: The Young Rascals, Collections, Groovin’ and Once Upon A Dream -
exact replicas of the highly collectible original LPs, each one in hefty
180-gram vinyl and mastered from the vintage analog tapes. Groovin’ to the
Rascals on vinyl? It's Wonderful.
"A soulful New York bar band, the Rascals tried to replicate their jacked-up live rendition of the Olympics' 'Good Lovin'' in the studio. 'We weren’t too pleased with our performance,' singer Felix Cavaliere admitted. 'It was a shock to us when it went to the top of the charts.'" - Rolling Stone
