Label: GUERSSEN

Release date: 14/01/2015

Barcode: 4040824084851

Catalog no.: GUESS0000143

Item ID: 410944

This superb release tells the story of L.A.-based '60s teen band We The People (not to be confused with the better known Florida outfit of the same name). These guys played an amazing blend of garage, folk-rock and psychedelia, resulting in a handful of cool 45s which they recorded for the Reena label in 1967-'68. Two of those 7-inches were released using the moniker The American Zoo. Guitar player Bill Bottrell later became a Grammy award producer, working with Michael Jackson, Madonna and George Harrison among others. Drummer Jason "Jasun" Martz toured with Frank Zappa and recorded with Michael Jackson. Today, he's a well-known avant-garde artist and sculptor. Steve Zaillian, the band's original drummer, became an Academy Award winning director, producer and screenwriter ('Schindlers List' and 'Hannibal' among others). This collection includes all the We The People/American Zoo 45 sides plus two previously unreleased tracks from 1967, taken from the only surviving copy of the band's ultra rare 10-inch demo acetate. Featuring carefully remastered sound, the release also includes an insert/booklet with rare photos and detailed liner notes by Gray Newell (Shindig!, Ugly Things).

Also available: VISIONS OF TIME: COMPLETE RECORDINGS (CD).
