Time Peace: The Rascals' Greatest Hits is a greatest hits album from the Rascals, released on June 24, 1968. It reached number one on the Billboard Pop Albums chart by September 1968. It also topped the Cash Box albums chart with a run in the Top 10 for 20 consecutive weeks.
The album is the only such compilation released during the group's active career. Although billed to their later name, most of the material came from when the group was known as the Young Rascals. It contains all their singles through 1968's earlier "A Beautiful Morning", as well as some of their R&B treatments from early in their career.
Packaging consisted of a gatefold album cover with front and back consisting of dot-based newspaper cartoon-style drawing of the four group members, with song titles in speech balloons; the interior gave complete song credits on one side, and an ensemble photograph on the other side whose artsy nature and 1968-style dress, together with the album's punning title, foretold the thematic and artistic direction the group was about to undertake.
Time Peace was the group's most commercially successful album, reaching number one on the Billboard Pop Albums chartby September 1968. It also topped the Cash Box albums chart with a run in the Top 10 for 20 consecutive weeks. Moreover, showing the group's white soul label was well earned, Time Peace also reached number four on the Billboard Black Albums chart. It was RIAA-certified as a gold record on September 4, 1968.
Music critic Robert Christgau regarded the album as representative of New York City's rock music at the time, and later included it in his "Basic Record Library" of 1950s and 1960s recordings, published in Christgau's Record Guide: Rock Albums of the Seventies (1981).
