THE RASCALS' DISCOGRAPHY

(Data courtesy of: Steve Knowlton/Rascals Reference Page)

This page lists all of the Rascals' original single and album releases.  It does not include reissues and compilations released after 1971.
Catalog numbers, release dates, and running times are taken from the booklet in the box set All I Really Need (Los Angeles: Rhino Handmade, 2001).
Chart figures are taken from The Billboard Hot 100 Charts: The Sixties (Menomonee Falls, Wis.: Record Research, Inc., 1990)
and The Cashbox Album Charts, 1955-1975 (Metuchen, N.J.: Scarecrow Press, 1988).

Local charts were published irregularly, and I recorded those I found in the ProQuest Historical Newspapers Database (Ann Arbor, Mich.)
I don't necessarily prefer one chart to the other - those charts happen to be the ones my library has.

I Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore (2:46) / Slow Down (3:14)
recorded 2 November 1965
Atlantic single 2312 (mono); released 22 November 1965
