The Young Rascals were the most consistent hitmakers of what was to become “blue-eyed soul.”

Their contributions to music:

They were the most artistically important American bands in a time that was dominated by English rock performers.The greatest “bar band” to come out of New York in the 60’s. They had the gift to integrate the jazz sound into their own pop-soul sound unlike many white acts.

Follow the tabs for videos and history of a historic rock band that many bands say were their inspiration to their own sound.

Attached is a video of one of their number one hits, “Groovin'” that was released in 1967.
