The Rascals' discography is diverse, with numerous compilations. Their early-and primary-output was all recorded on Atlantic Records and produced with Arif Mardin. After the band left Atlantic in 1971, they recorded two albums for Columbia with various line-ups other than the original four members of the group. Billboard Top 200. Cashbox. Atlantic 8123 (Mono), SD-8123 (Stereo). The Island of Real (1972). Time Peace: The Rascals' Greatest Hits (1968). The Very Best of The Rascals (1993).
The Young Rascals is the debut album by rock band The Young Rascals. The album was released on March 28, 1966, and rose to on the Billboard Top LPs chart and in Cashbox. Most of the songs on The Young Rascals were covers of songs written or originally performed by other artists, with only "Do You Feel It" authored by the band.

The Rascals' best work arguably came from their 1968 album Once Upon A Dream, which featured several leads each from Brigati and Cavaliere. Though the only success for a single on the album was "It's Wonderful" ( on the US charts), the album utilized frequent instrumentals, and peaked at on the album charts. The album was praised by some critics for such songs as "Rainy Day", "My World" and the title track. Understandably, the song "My Hawaii" became a top of the charts hit in Hawaii. Cavaliere shifted toward more jazz and gospel influenced writing; he and Danelli released two more albums on Columbia Records as The Rascals, Peaceful World (. and The Island Of Real (. using other musicians and singers. These albums didn't sell as well as their earlier work and the group finally disbanded in 1972.
If 1968's Once Upon a Dream, was the Rascals' first reach into uncharted territory, the double length Freedom Suite released a year later, was off the map. The band dug in and wrote a single LP's worth of solid tunes including a quartet of fine singles. Foremost is "People Got to Be Free"; it spent five weeks at Number One on the pop chart (and hit number 14 on the R&B one as well). Then there's easy summer soul and gospel groove on "A Ray of Hope," which may have only gotten to number 39, but is among the most enduring cuts in the Rascals legacy
