The Rascals, originally Young Rascals, were inducted in to THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME in 1997. Their series of singles, 1965-1970, was one of the best of the era.
The biggest hit of their career came in 1968 when “People Got To Be Free” topped the BILLBOARD hOT 100 Chart for five weeks during the late summer.
They always had a soulful quality to their music, which was labeled blue-eyed soul. They would disband during 1972 but there have been a number of reunions with various members down through the years.
